There are few species quite as oblivious as the Bubblegum Blast-Rat. Breeding at a rate of approximately 100 new Blast-rats a month, per-member of the horde sounds like a recipe for disaster... and it is, but not in the way one would think. See the Blast-Rat is so oblivious of it's surrounding, that, upon seeing a predator the Blast-Rat will have a surge of adrenaline, which, unfortunately for it, it is highly allergic to. The allergic reaction trigger the massive quantities of phosphorous in the Blast-Rat's diet to ignite, cause the Blast-Rat to explode (creating a distinct popping sound). Often this may cause a chain reaction of Blast-Rats becoming startled enough to explode. An exploded Blast-Rat will usually leave behind it's large, bushy tail which often float around like tumbleweed. They are collected by local artists as they create excellent brush-making material.
It is said that the prairies that house the Bubblegum Blast-Rats are simultaneously the most fertile and least profitable place to build farms, often having ones crops blasted to smitherines right before harvest. It is said that the Bay farming family has lived on those prairies for a century. Their youngest son Michael taking inspiration from the Bubblegum Blast-Rats and going on to have a lucrative if mediocre film career.
Concept: Squineek Living in the treetops of the Kaloa province, these adorable creatures have gained a fearful reputation despite their welcoming appearance. Breeding in excess, their population is only kept in check by their natural defence capability. When threatened by a predator members of the group will valiantly run, dive and jump onto their would be attackers before quickly inflating and exploding in a shower of blood and deadly acid. This agonisingly maims and more often than not, kills the predator serving as a warning to other creatures nearby to steer clear of the Squineeks.
Concept: Feather Fuse This is a non flying bird like the penguin and the ostrich. the feather fuse lives in a large population and when the feel threatened the will group all together and run in a big circle. If a predator moves in the closes bird will run at it and makes there top feather inject a chemical in there brain. This chemical mix with an other chemical housed in a chemical sack in the brain will form a combustible gas. This gas will make there head swell up. When close enough the bird will ignite the gas in its head and the skull will fracture in to small bits acting like a frag grenade most of the time only the feed remain and some burning feathers.

Ottorpedo(otter+torpedo) is a small aquatic mammal that literally launches itself at the predators. Bumps located on the front of the creature's head will detonate on the impact if the living torpedo gets enough velocity.

Concept: Fuzzysplodster this creature undergoes an explosive chemical reaction when faced with stressful circumstances. if it isnt getting enough love you might have a suprisingly volatile situation on your hands
Concept: Tiger Mouse The Tiger mouse has developed an explosive organ, which it spits out to warn its predator of danger. The organ is covered in a slimy goo, and it glows bright pink. When squeezed, this organ will explode violently and turn anything in a 20 foot radius to dust. The Tiger mouse needs this organ to survive, so it must sacrifice it's own life to use it. We don't know too much about the Tiger mouse other than this, many scientists have died attempting to understand the Tiger mouse, and they are widely considered too dangerous to study.

Concept: Black-footed Sodium Sapper Sappers are small, quirky mammals that live in rocky burrows in the arctic regions of Hedonia. There, they forage for moss and other small ground cover, and hide from the many large predators that stalk the snowdrifts.
Sappers have a unique self-defense mechanism, whereby they store pure sodium in a special oil-filled bladder in their gut, and when threatened by predators, they burst this bladder, which causes the sodium to detonate violently upon contact with bodily water in the body.
Only male sappers use this ability defensively, which means that males outnumber females at birth; females watch after the babies, which they give birth to at a tremendous rate.
