Phanzqlix are bipedal amphibians which live in swamps and salt marshes. They live in loose communal tribes. They do not have a sense of private property beyond small trinkets. Responsibility for raising children falls upon all adults in the community. The Phanzqlix will usually select one representative when dealing with outsiders, while the rest of the tribe remains isolated.
They have acquired a taste for the high fructose corn syrup carbonated drinks introduced to them by explorers, and readily trade various types of native handcrafts for as much as they can acquire.
