Saltantas are mammalian creatures inspired by boar. They can be obtained from the first quest and subsequently purchased from the Genome Splicer.


Growth[]

Capsule[]

"It is a short, squat capsule."

Young[]

"Though its head almost appears too big for its body, this young juvenile is quite energetic. It spends every waking moment exploring its surroundings. Sometimes its curvy, developing horns will get tangled in something, but the creature uses its powerful neck muscles to twist and pull until they come free. Its spotted coat has a coarse feel to it, though the bushy tip of its tail is surprisingly soft. If startled, it will lash its tail and let out a surprisingly deep growl."

Adult[]

"Saltantas are an elusive species that can be difficult to spot thanks to their mottled fur and bushy mane and tail, which allow them to disguise themselves among plants, rocks, and other natural objects. They are powerful ambush hunters capable of stalking prey for days until the opportunity to strike arises. Their strong, muscular body is best suited for short bursts of speed, so it is crucial that they deliver a swift, fatal blow with their sharp claws or fangs. As they only need to eat once or twice a month, Saltantas spend much of their time wandering. They have no set territory, preferring to seek out new places every day, and thus tracking them can be challenging. Females carry their young on their back until the juveniles are old enough to walk; the soft fur of their mane makes a comfortable nest. Saltantas communicate mainly in low growls and snarls, though there are reports that they can also produce a soft, rumbling purr."

TFO uses Esperanto as a basis for creature names (although it's not always exact—accents are ignored and spellings occasionally shift). “Saltanta” means “Jumper.”
