Description

Zhaoianus are a kind of proto-bird. Much like some of their kin would later do in reverse, they are developing wings to live in the air and losing the ability to move on the ground. Both their legs and arms have grown wing surfaces, which makes any movement on the ground dangerous for them. They also are not capable of gaining lift once on the ground, so instead they stick to the trees and rocky shorelines and are quite adept climbers.

Terrain

Zhaoianus live in: Rocky Coasts or Shorelines, Forests, and Jungles. Their restriction of not being able to live on the ground is what drastically effects where they could live.

Life

Zhaoianus are insect hunting carnivores. They aren’t very picky about what kind of insects they hunt, though their need to stay in the trees limits the kind of insects they are able to catch. They can however swoop down low over the floor of a forest to catch some insects along the floor, but this always runs the risk of them ending up on the ground.

Zhaoianus are found both alone and in mated pairs or small families while their offspring develop.
