Species Profile: Floggle

Hey there! It’s November, which means it’s NaNoWriMo! I wrote this back in October ahead of time, so I have no idea what’s going on! So let’s just get to it, aside from everything before the end of this sentence. Quoted from the species appendix in Slubes:

Floggles are creatures related to frogs with heads and torsos combined into one. Most of their height is from appendages twice the height of their torso, thin but very flexible and strong. This makes them look not unlike heads with appendages. They have wide mouths and eyes on the top corners of their heads. Their average lifespan is about 70 years.

Physical Characteristics

The outward appearance of the floggle, as quoted from my personal encyclopedia: “Floggles are green frog creatures. Their heads are sort of fused into their torsos, leaving them with a small body and no neck, but their appendages are twice as long and very flexible, somewhat thin but still strong. This gives them about the same height as a slube; they’re sort of like a head with arms and legs. They have eyes on the top corners of their heads and have wide mouths.”

Floggles’ torsos look pretty much like that of Earth frogs, but what really distinguishes their appearance from Earth frogs are the long appendages, which give them the height of a slube despite having a body not much bigger than a slube’s head. These long appendages can be somewhat disconcerting as they grow old, though, as near the end of their life they will sometimes fall off. Most floggle will choose to be euthanized at that point.

History and Culture

Oh wow, I don’t really have much to say at this point! I guess this means there aren’t really any recurring themes in their culture; maybe there will be more light shed on their history at a later point, though.
