One of my new characters. Jenkins the rat! He's shy, sweet, and a bit of a coward. Even though he wants to, he doesn't really stick up for others. He used to be a domestic pet, but escaped to live in the wild. He met new friends and learnt to be more confident. I might make a story about him and his friends soon, so keep an eye open for it! :3
These charming Fruitifuzz are Yellow Straightneck Squashes. As with all fruitifuzz, they ate tons of their namesake fruits when they were hungry larvae, thus developing to resemble them.
Having no claws and being chubby fuzzballs, they aren't adept at climbing. However, like other gourds, they have thick, rough paw pads and powerful mandibles. Being sturdy and strong, they can travel long distances and work for many hours without a sweat. Their mandibles are suited well for gnawing at tough vines and penetrating hard food, making them excellent farmers.
Another fascinating ability they have is the peculiar skill of mimicking sounds just like a parrot! They can screech and squawk and imitate all sorts of sounds. They are very noisy and love to cause a giant ruckus, flapping their long wiry arm fur and knocking things over. You'll know when they're partying around when you hear them strumming on the burblebar, a little bamboo guitar-like instrument. In these squash festivals, it's a tradition to scream out your name at the very top of your lungs. Very noisy and not pleasant when you're trying to sleep, but these parties can be a blast!
I hope y'all enjoyed this Fruitfile log! More fruitifuzz coming soon! See ya later! :3
