The taxraks are a group of related monsters that blend mammalian and reptilian features. A typical taxrak is a lean, quadrupedal creature covered in short, slate blue fur. Taxraks are egg layers, producing clutches of large, soft shelled eggs that are buried to keep them warm and well guarded. All taxraks are predatory.
A feature common to all taxrak species is their unusual ears, the pinnea of which are composed of soft, prehensile tissue. The ears are flexible and able to grasp objects with some dexterity. The purpose of these structures is unknown, although dissection has revealed that they contain multiple small muscles and are rich in nervous tissue.
This is a long legged variant of taxrak that hunts for fish in shallow water. Like a heron, it will wait patiently for its prey to swim nearby, then catch them by striking with its long, narrow jaws. Their teeth are small but very sharp to help grasp their prey, which they then swallow whole. Fishers are the most harmless of the taxraks and are not particularly aggressive, preferring to flee rather than fight when confronted with a stronger creature, but as with all creatures of the cold, it pays to be cautious.
