50 metres long, the Ixtlil or Sea-Hydra is native to Shogun (Dagudashaag 0729).
Physiology and ecology
A mammal with a ﬂat, broad body and a long tail; their limbs had evolved into four long ﬂippers. These are powered by strong muscles attached to wide bony plates formed by the shoulder girdle and the pelvis. The ﬂippers made a ﬂying movement through the water. The neck supports a long neck and a large head with a mouth filled with a row of sharp teeth. The body also supports four pseudo-heads, in reality, tentacles which support the creatures’ sensory organs and are used to grasp, break oﬀ and drag the coral it eats to its mouth. Ixtlil breathe air, and bear live young.
History and background
Ixtlil are hunted by the native fishermen and are considered a local delicacy however stocks have sharply declined in recent years. The Pan-Galactc Friends of Life have recently declared the Ixtlil an endangered species and have made frequent appeals to the planetary High Guild to put a stop to the annual slaughter but to no avail.
