Migrador are a large ornithomimid species native to Rachantes. They are close relatives of the Exodor.

History[]

Migrador appeared and evolved in the planet Rachantes. Besides their role in the ecosystem, they haven't participated in any historical events yet.

Biology[]

Description[]

Migrador are quite large creatures, with a lenght of as much as 2.5 meters and a height that can reach 3 meters. Their weight usually ranges between 300 and 500 kilograms.

Migrador have a light body with a short tail. They have really long legs with an odd zigzag shape, ending in bony, four-digited avian feet. Their arms are rather long and end in three-digited clawed hands. Their necks are long and slender, ending in a rather large head with a broad dodo-like beak and two antennae-like structures. They are almost completely covered in short, light green scale-like feathers, with a dark underbelly.

Sexual dimorphism is present in Migrador, but it cannot be noticed too easily. The antennae-like structures in males are slightly longer than those in females. Young Migrador highly resemble their parents, besides their much shorter antennae.

Traits and abilities[]

Migrador are fast and agile runners, capable of outrunning the majority of their predators. Their legs are very strong, but the rest of their body lacks muscular strength, and their lack of body protection makes them vulnerable and fragile to attacks.

Migrador don't have many weapons, this being the reason for running away being their main reaction towards predators. Their sharp claws and beak can cause wounds in predators, but using them to attack is risky due to it usually exposing the creature to the predator's attacks, rather than keeping it away. The use of the antennae-like structures on their heads is unknown, but the most approved hypothesis suggests that they are erogenous structures, as well as serving the purpose of attracting the opposite sex: this idea is highly supported by the Migrador's mating behavior, which involves said structures.

Habitat[]

Migrador mainly inhabit the vast savannahs of their homeplanet, where they can find all the food they need. They are also commonly sighted near beaches, the place they usually move to in order to mate and lay their eggs.

Behavior[]

Migrador are rather lonely creatures, usually living alone or in couples and rarely forming larger groups. When they do, these groups are quite small, never surpassing a number of four individuals, and the . Migrador are omnivorous, with their prefered meals being Baobus Tree leaves and smaller animals such as Seedcracklers and the young of other creatures. Due to the latter, most herbivores try to avoid Migrador when their cubs go through the first years of life, but otherwise they can coexist peacefully most of the time. Migrador also live together with their closest relatives, the Exodor, rather commonly, to the point that there have been reported cases of both species attempting to breed, sometimes resulting in a hybrid creature known as Ranedor. When they spot a predator, Migrador will usually attempt to escape it rather than fighting back; unlike the Exodor, however, Migrador might also attempt to fight back using its claws if needed.

Migrador, just like the Exodor, are monogamous and do have a mating season, which also occurs in the fifth month of Rachantes. Established Migrador couples will reproduce once again, while lone Migrador will start secreting hormones from their antennae-like structures in hopes of finding a mate. The latter will stop secreting hormones and wait for the next year if they don't manage to find and impress a mate within a month. Most Migrador will move from their usual savannah enviroment to the beaches of the planet to breed and take care of their young, where plenty more food can be found. When Migrador of both sexes first find a potential couple, they will stomp their feet on the ground slowly while spinning around themselves and moving their erogenous antennae up and down, performing a strange dance in order to impress their interest. After this, Migrador will delicately stroke each other's antennae in turns, forming a bond that is known to last even after one of the individuals dies, before finally mating and letting the female lay one or two eggs both parents will take care of until they hatch. Migrador chicks are born being capable of walking, but will still need of their parents' caring until they reach their third year of life and become independent.
