Shraggots are creatures evolved from intestinal parasites. They live in rudimentary troops with an alpha male head, similar to chimpanzees or baboons. Sraggots tend to have a rough territory centered around a lake or stream where the females will deposit eggs into the muddy banks, just under the water line. The young spend the first six months of their lives in the water, only venturing out on land when they reach breeding age. The eggs are often poached as they are considered a delicacy by several species.
