TL;DR: list your national animal in this index!

Nations throughout the multiverse are associated with many things - colors, anthems, landmarks, traits and far, far more. Chief among these are national animals, the one creature a nation treasures most above all, often being made official as such. From water buffalo to land crabs, flying squirrels to jumping spiders, long-haired guinea pigs to bald eagles and more, a national animal is an important cultural symbol and icon for sovereign states, relating qualities, history, symbolism and other national connectors. Here in Dexterra, ours is the intelligent, observant, affectionate beagle, to us very much the epitome of 'man's best friend.' But Dexter beagle sanctification is also rooted in our origin: centuries ago arriving on what is today the Dexter mainland, some two dozen beagles accompanied a crew that was soon wiped out by a cataclysmic hurricane. Nevertheless able to manage on their own, the surviving beagles persevered into a modern population of tens of thousands, and now can not only be found in almost every Dexter home, dog park or veterinarian's office, but also in the Dexter capital city name, national colors and currency name. Who knows, a beagle could even be typing this out to you!

Via Facterra, Dexters of all walks of life would like to open the National Animal Zoo, a place where you can list your national animal and wander in amazement through exhibits of other national animals. Entrants will be sorted alphabetically by nation name. Imagery is also more than welcome but not mandatory, though artists should be mindful of forum readability:



Thank you for your interest in the National Animal Zoo!


First. We mainly need your nation name and national animal. But if you want, you may also include your pretitle and any additional relevant text. We would also sincerely appreciate it if you attached an image of your national animal - to do so, please upload one copy to an approved image host and attach a link in a reply here (using spoiler tags) with your nation's name.

To make it clear. We would sincerely appreciate it if you used spoiler tags for images and text over three lines! When posting material in the gallery, Facterra will sort contents in spoilers first by image, then by any text and finally a link to your nation for further tourist reference (you can also tell us to withhold that link to your nation if you would like).


We appreciate your interest!



If you would like it:

Code: Select all
Pretitle and/or nation name - national animal



Facterra will check monthly for any CTEs, and remove them from the public list (in the interest of space) but retain them on a private list should they return. Entrants who CTE and return need not apply again, just link to your original application or simply let us know that you once applied.

Disclaimer: the only information retained on a private list upon your CTE is anything you voluntarily include with your original application, as well as a link to that application for verification - please let us know if you have any privacy concerns or suggestions.




We get it - nations change all the time!


If at any point you would like to update your national animal along with any other information, just follow the same procedures as your previous one and be sure to let us know of your prior application - voluntarily linking to that application would be highly appreciated.

If you don't want to update your national animal, only other information - pretitle, flag name, additional info, anything at all - you just need to post whichever updates you would like us to take care of; as above, voluntarily linking to your previous application would be highly appreciated.

Thank you!

"The Modern Drekamythian Dragon
Image

National Heritage
The Drekamythian Dragon is the National Animal of the Confederate States of Anagonia. Recognized by legislation passed during the founding years of the Confederacy, the Drekamythian Dragon is believed to represent the undying spirit of Anagonia as she continues on her journey to be a supremely suitable home for her people. Traditionally, the Drekamythian Dragon is believed to bring good luck to anyone using its image as well as bringing about a positive outcome to any sort of engagement between two individuals.

Origin
According to fossil records, the Drekamythian Dragon has always existed on the Anagonian Continent in some form or another. The earliest example can be found dating back some 50 million years ago, where ancient fossil records indicate the existence of large reptiles that thrived in the Pangea-Continent that dominant Gholgoth during this time. Around 20 million years ago, the entirety of the mainland began to split a part into various continents, one of them permanently trapping the species known as Draconus Unchanos on what is now the Anagonian Continent, and one of the first examples of a winged reptile predator. The Draconus Unchanos would evolve slowly into what is now known as the Draconus Drekamythus Imperius; the Drekamythian Dragon.

Modern Day
The modern-day Drekamythian Dragon is typically not seen unless at a distance, gliding along air currents and typically straying from human settlements. Thanks to the ever-increasing interest of preserving national beauty, there exists vast leagues of natural land for the dragons to live in. As a consequence, some of these areas are frequented by humans. Unless unnaturally provoked by an individual intent on harm, Drekamythian Dragons are no threat to human beings. In fact, it is typically catalogued that modern interactions are friendly, if confusing. In some instances it is recorded that the dragons attempt to communicate. It is typically agreed upon that Drekamythian Dragons are semi-intelligent or most intelligent, but due to the complete lack of information on their social structure and their direct avoidance of observation to their social norms, much of this is speculation.

Males
-Males of the Drekamythian Dragon species tend to be larger than females, asserting territory and - from what observers can see from a distance - protect their egg chambers inside mountain caves. They are usually more assertive than females, pushing even the most astute human away with up to and including bites, which typically are not life threatening. Males of this species tend to be around 63 feet long and 14 feet high, with a wingspan equal or greater than two times the body length.

Females
-Drekamythian Dragon Females are very docile compared to their male counterparts. While they exhibit similar habits of keeping humans away from their habitations, they are typically more friendly in human interactions. Much of this is proven when they push humans away simply by nudges, more often than not leaving it to males to issue the warning bites that ends the investigations. Females of this species tend to be around 43 feet long and 9 feet tall, with equal or greater wingspans to two times the body length.

Lifespan
It is unknown how long Drekamythian Dragons naturally live. Fossils that have been successfully recovered - that is, allowed to be recovered by the dragons themselves through inaction on the part of the dragon discovering the archeologist - have proven inconclusive. It is speculated that due to their similarity to dinosaurs, and judging by dinosaur fossils of similar carnivore types, they might live for sixty to eighty years.

Human Interaction
The entirety of human interaction with Drekamythian Dragons takes place on pilgrimages from various churches dotting the Anagonian Mainland into the forests where the dragons live. It is speculated that due to the common occurrence of these pilgrimages, which have lasted for hundreds if not thousands of years, the dragons have simply become accustomed to it. They remain wary of humans who follow them too deeply into their territories, however, and grow more and more defensive the close they become to what is assumed to be nesting grounds. Due to this, very little is known about their social structure or society, with the entirety dependent on the interactions that happen naturally when a Drekamythian Dragon stumbles on a pilgrim or scientist."



"In the kingdom of Antaviana and Maians the National animal is the crestless Eagle.
Although We have some 230 protected small animals most invertebrates, also reptiles and small mammals that are autoctonous of our islands: The most known are Antavianan dwarf Goat, Maians's wall lizard."

The Union of the Arbor Isles - the Arborian Bear


"The mourning dove was selected as the official animal for a plethora of reasons. Doves in general represent peace and religiousness, two concepts critically important to the early nation that remain relevant today. Birds, in general, are often representative of freedom and liberty. The mourning dove specifically is associated with rural life and their call is seen as beautiful and melancholic."

"The Entity's emblematic animal is the flying otter (Hydrictis volans). It is a species of otter inhabiting the moat surrounding the Entity of Nova Universo. It is a small species, with mature specimens measured having a length of about 60-85 cms and weight of about 4,5 to 7,0 kgs.

Its fur is reddish-brown to chocolate brown with patches of white or grey on its crown, stomach and tail. It has a fur-covered patagium which it uses to drift between trees. Its face is broad and squat. Its teeth are adapted for eating fish, with sharp incisors and carnassials interlocking for a tight grip.

It is known as a sociable and vocal species with unique courtship rituals. To woo a female otter, a group of male otters would jump from trees and float in mid-air in acrobatic fashion. The otter who stays in mid-air the longest and with the best acrobatic skill is chosen.

The flying otter is vocal and lives in small family groups. It only becomes social during courtship season. They are solitary hunters, live in sex-segregated groups and non-territorial. They prefer to move in well-marked paths and rarely stray from riverbanks."

Redershein - the heron, "a type of long legged bird."


Image
"The Tanto Moose's historical range was Western Rhodevus, including the provinces of Yztal, Cundas and Wyle. At its height, the Tanto Moose held a population of between 1.1-1.3 million, travelling in herds with an average size of 150. The largest recorded herd numbered in the 10,000.

The Tanto Moose, unlike its name suggests, is not actually a part of the deer species like actual moose, but are a subspecies of horse. It is the only known species of horse that can grow antlers. Due to its immense size and shape, it was thought to be a part of the Rhodeve Western Moose species, which also inhabits the area and looks nearly identical.

Historically, the Tanto Moose was tamable and trainable, allowing for use in agriculture, travel and most importantly, warfare. The secrets regarding its "domestication" and training were kept by the Tanto Tribe. The Tanto Moose being named after this tribe.

When the Europeans brought the much more reliable and easily tamable horses, the Tanto Moose was out-competed, leading to its descent in numbers. With the loss of the knowledge of their taming and without the ability to properly train the animals, it became equivalent to an exotic food source. Between 1800 and 1910, nearly 800,000 Tanto Moose were killed for trophies as well as food for wealthy clientele. They were eaten to extinction.

In 2017, it was discovered that a small herd of 53 Tanto Moose lived in the wild in the dense forests of North-Western Yztal. The species was moved from extinct to critically endangered and the Tanto Moose will be left alone by all humans. Touching, injuring and/or killing a Tanto Moose now carries a huge fine and possibly a lengthy prison sentence. The areas in the forest have been made into a nature reserve and are barred from human entry. Pictures may be taken of the Tanto Moose, if they stray from this area onto the previously designated hiking areas.

The Tanto Moose is a slightly territorial animal that will mark out its mating ground and sleeping grounds by digging up patches of grass, shrubbery and top soil to create a zoned off area. The Tanto Moose will only defend its territory when young are nearby or at the start of mating season. The Tanto can give birth to between 1 and 3 foals each year with a gestation period of 198 days.

They are highly endangered."

"The Slimy Thing with Legs
Image
Limosafera Cumcruribus

Conservation status
Image
Least Concern (IUCN 3.1)

Scientific Classification
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Limosafera
Class: Limosafera
Order: Limosafera
Family: Limosafera
Genus: Limosafera
Species: L. Cumcruribus

Binomial Name
Limosafera Cumcruribus
(Wiggins, 1874)

Limosafera Cumcruribus (AKA: the slimy thing with legs, crabtopus, crawly) is a unique creature found exclusively in Sadakoyama. Limosafera consists of a single species and, despite sharing characteristics of molluscs, arthropods, and some amphibians, is considered the only member of its order, class, and phylum as well. In fact, despite having ordinary DNA and a cellular structure similar to all known animal life, no fossil remains have ever been found and no genetic evidence has yet been discovered that can conclusively link Limosafera to any other species on earth. A scientifically unsupported yet still popular hypothesis holds that these creatures were pulled from another universe when the ship that brought the original colonists to Sadakoyama passed through a dimensional anomaly. This hypothesis stems entirely from a fanciful account of the shipwreck by a young junior officer* published long after the event and is not given much serious credence.

Anatomy
Limosafera is bilaterally symmetric, has six primitive eyespots capable of detecting light and movement, and a circular mouth on the bottom front of its small body, ringed with hard, scraper-like teeth. The body is supported on three pairs of spindly legs and four pairs of cephalopod-like feeding tentacles are arranged laterally. Dissection reveals a primitive neurological system and for decades it was thought the organism lacked a brain, until a smal cluster of neurons was identified behind the eyespots. Specimens may range in size from as small as two centimeters in diameter (measuring resting leg span) to fourteen centimeters. Limosafera has no internal or external skeleton, as such, but the legs are supported by an internal shell structure, not unlike a crab leg, but wrapped inside a fleshy epidermis.

Behaviour
Limnosafera shows no sign of even rudimentary intelligence, colloquially described as "...horribly stupid, but sometimes infuriatingly persistant and cantankerous". They do not exhibit climbing behaviour to a significant degree, do not burrow, but they will explore existing opening and tunnels. Limnosafera are excellent swimmers.
The species is entirely parthenogenic, forming egg sacs it carries on its back until gestation. Their primary strategy for survival is producing massive amounts of eggs, only a small fraction of which will survive into adulthood.
Limosafera have been known to bite or pinch at human fingers defensively, and large specimens can and have occasionally caused serious wounds. As a secondary defence, Limosafera adults have slime glands all over their bodies that secrete copious amounts of mucous if attacked. Nevertheless, Limosafera is eaten by birds, snakes, large fish, and humans, in part because (for humans, at least) consuming the unrefined mucous induces brief synesthesia accompanied by a sense of elation.

Geographical distribution
Limosafera is amphibious. Both larvae and adults favor shallow seas and lakes, tide pools, ponds, and slow-moving rivers, the larvae exclusively so. The adults will range far from water, but tend to die if they stay too long in low-humidity environments. Limosafera is most common along the coasts and rivers, except in the vicinity of Academy City, where it is thought vibrations from the many mechanical systems maintaining the city drive them away.

Diet
It is a voracious scavenger and will eat most unattended food or organic waste, and though they have never been observed even attempting to eat any living tissue, plant or animal, campers have reported waking to find the creatures chewing on their hair and nails.

Uses
Food
“Crawlies” are eaten throughout Sadakoyama, though the province of Beaumonde is most famous for the practice because of frequent crabtopus boils. In most prepared dishes, such as omelets and étouffées, before adding the cooked meat to the dish it must be carefully removed, by hand; no reliable or efficient means to do so mechanically has yet been developed. At crabtopus boils or other meals where the entire body of the crawly is presented, the exterior meat is sucked off, then the leg shells and the carapace cracked and the meat sucked out. The eggs, when present, have a very strong umami flavor, comparable to sea urchin roe. The flesh itself has a light, slightly oily, slightly creamy, shrimpy flavour with a mild peppery tang. The slime coating is rich and buttery.

Pharmaceutical
The psychoactive agents in the mucous of Limosafera are refined and encapsulated into a drug called Limosasine. It is a non-addictive, mildly euphoric substance that acts as a gentle mood stabilizer and assists with feelings of anxiety."

"The Federation’s national animal is the osprey, generally depicted when taking flight. It was preceded by the Whitetail Deer, but due to the an inconsistency between hunting laws and laws regulating the killing and consumption of the national animal, the osprey was voted in instead on January 23, 1963.

The osprey represents all major aspects of the Federation. Freedom, beauty, efficiency, power, abundance, and skill. It also represents honesty. It is illegal to kill, capture, or harm the osprey in any way. They may not be kept as pets."

"The national animal of the National Republic of Thermodolia is the Thermodolian Black Bear (Ursus Thermodolianus) which is the second smallest black bear species in the world.

Killing a Thermodolian Black Bear is a felony; more specifically its first degree murder and destruction of a national symbol. It is against the law to build anything within 15km from a known bear habitat, export of the bear without government approval is a felony, the bears are also prohibited from being used as pets or entertainment, violating said laws can land you in federal prison for 30 years. Thermodolian Black Bears are found on currency and are one of two bear species in Thermodolia, the other being the Northern Brown Bear (Ursus Arctos Borealis).

Habitat and Range: Mountains, woodland, and wetlands. Is found living in an area that spans from the Northern mountains of Thermodolia to its central plains in the south.
Diet: Omnivorous (fish, berries, grasses, insects, nuts, and carrion)
Description: 100kg-190kg, 160cm-180cm in head-and-body length, and 70cm to 100cm in shoulder height. Black coat with a white crescent on chest and brown snout. The bears have their cubs in the winter and generally have 1-3 cubs
Conservation Status: Endangered"
