The Teliskviqk are an elongated race of agrarian farmers and cattle ranchers. Their physiology defies classification, sharing characteristics of both plant and animal. During the Teliskviqk's sleep cycle the "toes" burrow into and extract nutrients from the ground like roots. In addition the green skin coloring is the result of photosynthesis. They also have a digestive tract and must ingest plant matter and animal protein to survive.
