I have begun a short research expedition of Feran on the eastern coastline. I located a large cluster of the creature at approximately 32153 Longitude 20335 Latitude. View attachment 1613 At first apperance the creature seems to be Avian in nature, with obvious flight and hover ability, as well as a prominent beak feature in the facial region. However, after close examination of a dead specimen, I do not beleive this creature to be of the Bird family of Animal; The creature's skin is leathery and does not present feathers of any type. Flight apears possible through skeletal design, covered in skin and membrane throughout, much like that of the common Bat, of Earth. The animal also presents a long tail, composing of almost 40% of the animal's body length. I estimate the size of the largest example I have found, to be approximately 9 feet in length, from tip of tail to front of beak. The wingspan of the creature appears to be serveral feet at longest; The hide of the animal can be extracted with care, and presents an interesting pattern. It appears that ingrained in the animal's skin is a type of phospate or mineral which may be attributed by the diet. When reflecting the sunlight, this hide appears to glow in places where the hide is affected by this mineral. View attachment 1614 The creature appears to perfer a close proximity to the Ocean, which indicates a diet of sea animal and plant types. It is my belief that this diet of high Sodium enriched intake is the contributing factor to the Phosphate growth within the hide of the animal; Through processing of the Feran, I was able to extract Animal Eye Oil as well as Animal Oil Residue. In some I was also able to find pieces of Corria Timber; The Feran appear social in nature, as they gather in groups and seem to interact on a social level with one another, leaving me to believe that they conform to a type of colony structure. However, the Feran are highly aggressive towards Humanoid species and extreme caution should be applied when approching this animal; Reproduction is evident, as a large number of these Feran appear to be thriving along the coastline, though it is not apparent how to determine the sex of the creatures, nor have I discovered wether they produce live offspring or eggs; Based on my findings, I would have to place the Feran within the Mammal or possibly, the Reptillian classification. Without evidence of the type of offspring produced I will not be able to define the class further. Please assist my research by adding your own research notes and findings to this journal. cheers.
