Russian Skulluqs by GummiiBirdii Russian Skulluqs by GummiiBirdii
I decided to make my sona's species public, and to develop it a bit. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but got a bit lazy to do it until now. This species is open, too <:

These are my new bbys ;v;


Russian Skulluqs are creatures that originated from Russia back in 1941 with breeding. They are supposed to have normal faces, but something in the breeding proccess caused the offspring to have their skulls as faces. They started to breed more of them, test on them, release some into the wild and thus it became a rather common species that spread everywhere around the world. Skulluqs are large dog-sized, fluffy creatures that can easily be identified with their skull face. They have large deerlike horns and a bit of a short tail. Though a few live in the wild, Most skulluqs actually live in human-populated areas or are domesticated. Skulluqs all have unique traits, which makes each one stand out. They may be as large as german shepherds and seem freaky, but they're gentle creatures if you get to know them better.

Something that makes them special is their 'magicbreath'. Their magicbreath is created with their energy, and can be used by the skulluq to help others with cures, protection shield, etc. However, the magicbreath takes away a lot of the skulluq's energy which can make them weaker and tired. Skulluqs do not have stomaches to store their food as it is quickly proccessed into energy after consumed. Skulluqs use their energy when they're hyper and speedy, and once they are low on energy then they go into a deep sleep to gain back energy. If a skulluq uses their magicbreath, sacrificing their energy to save you, then it means the skulluq cares for you deeply or has a trait of generosity. If two skulluqs are mates, then they can combine their magicbreath to create an offspring off the parents. Magicbreath can be useful and powerful, but it can get the skulluq seriously ill and even cause death if they sacrifice too much of their energy.

In order for one to classify as a Russian Skulluq they must have curvy deerlike horns, big sharp ears, scaly legs, a short tail and of course the skull face. Skulluqs communicate through various cat-like chirps and squeaks. Some skulluqs can have tufts of fur and rarely whiskers on their skullface while others don't. Skulluqs have ears that are flexible and easily stretch,which allows skulluqs to usually hide their face with their ears if they're embarrassed or timid due to how flexible they are. They usually walk on all fours, but some can be seen trying to walk on two legs due to skulluqs learning by watching others so they think if they see a person walking the way they do, then they should too. Their main body colors are whites, browns, grays and cream-yellows while the eye and horn color are more vibrant colors and should match (ex: if a skulluq's eyes are blue, then his horns should be blue as well) they have a lifespan of 78+ years. The horn and tail shapes can vary with the russian skulluqs. Some skulluqs have bunnylike tails, "tailfeathers" or just a big, fluffy caninelike tail. The horns can vary in shape whether they're long, short or bumpy.

Russian skulluqs have unique personalities and quirks, but they have common behavior. If they're scared, they will often hide somewhere they consider safe and will be extremely quiet, their ears usually covering their face. If they consider you important or see other skulluqs then they will do soft chirps trying to convince you to hide with them as well. If angered or aggressive, then they will constantly be chirping loudly and scratch anything in sight, their ears high up. If they feel comfortable and happy, then they'll be their normal selves and chirp/squeak every once in a while, their ears in normal position. If they are new to a area, they will immediately explore it and conclude if it's safe or not. Skulluqs are very curious creatures that can be a bit destructive when exploring fragile things. Skulluqs may have known and interacted with humans for decades and will act friendly towards them unless they're aggressive, but they won't immediately trust one. Once they do though, they become a bit clingy to you and follow you around. They don't really act like pets, as they're a bit more smarter than other animals and learn from watching what people do. If anything they act a bit more like young children rather than animals.

The best habitat for russian skulluqs to live in would be in human populated areas where the people can care for them. They are used to room-temperature and being in some kind of building, and have had some kind of human interaction ever since they've first existed. Some skulluqs that lived in the wild had died younger than other russian skulluqs who lived in human populated areas and they are not used to hunting due to them being scavengers by looking for left behind food or being fed by people. Though just because they live in human populated areas doesn't mean they're domesticated. Most usually live in sanctuaries, on the street, etc. while a minority live with a person in a home.
