We’ve all seen how adorable koalas are, sitting in trees all day eating eucalyptus. Common misconceptions suggest that the koala’s 16-hour sleep cycle is a result of being nearly-constantly high because of the toxins present in eucalyptus plants. While the koala’s digestive system filters out these toxins, imagine a creature that’s diet consisted of plants or animals with some kind of drug-like property. Think about its diet’s effects on it, physically, and about how that would effect the animals demeanor. Design your take on a creature that’s diet drugs it.
- The creature must be visibly sedated by it’s diet
- The creature’s primary food source should be represented
- The creature’s anatomy should take into consideration a low-energy method of locomotion
