Meadow Hound Info

Mon May 25, 2015, 12:53 PM
Hey all, Ecfor's snapped ankle needs medical treatment so I've decided to auction a set of Nordic canine adoptables. What are these creatures like you might ask? Here's some information to help you familiarise with the canines known as "Ängshundar" ~ Hounds of the meadows.

ÄNGSHUND FACTS ▼

  • HABITAT & AGE
    Ängshundar live in lightly forested meadows but leave to hunt or teach their young about the surroundings. These trips can take days or weeks but the hounds are in no hurry, they can live up to 25 years. Some lucky individuals have reached the age of 30.
  • DIET
    Large prey such as deer, moose and musk-ox are favourites but Ängshundar don't mind eating small mammals or birds. During late summer they feast on berries and fish before winter arrives.
  • COMMUNICATION & INTELLIGENCE
    Ängshundar communicate through body language but also a wide variety of sounds, it is believed they plan for the future and understand the concept of self-existence. Exploring members of the pack sometimes bring back items to other hounds. Most of these items are useless but they have symbolic value and are used to decorate living areas. (And pups nag these items just for fun...) Hunters often strip bones off empty carcasses and use them to display their ability to provide food.
  • APPEARANCE
    The hunting ground has great impact on the Ängshund's fur colour. For example, a brown hound is more fit to hunt in dense forest areas while grey hounds stick to the mountains. If pups are born too early during the year they may end up developing white colours due to snow. Darker variants of the Ängshund often hunt in deep water or darkness. Every hound grow thicker fur before winter.
  • ANATOMY
    Males and females have the same height and muscle mass, females however have slightly more body fat but this factor is barely visible. The legs of an Ängshund are long and resilient while the neck and breast appear rather thick, this gives the hound additional strength when performing bite attacks and thus reducing the risk of neck/spinal injury. The paws of an Ängshund are big and serve as snow shoes while the claws are used for bringing down prey, hence the high placement of the claws which prevents excessive wear.
  • PACK HIERARCHY
    Ängshundar live in wolf-like packs but rarely fight in order to prevent casualties, they prefer to cooperate. The pack hierarchy changes often making ranks quite difficult to determine, members of the pack are valued differently depending their skills. There is an Alpha male and female but their task is to organise events and keep fights to a minimum.

Feel free to ask Ängshund-related questions!
