Species Notes

Grouping: Flora, Aquatic

Fungusmongers are most commonly found lounging in underground lakes and ponds, but occasionally come out of the water, usually in search of food. They rely on an easily accessible body of water or a very humid environment in order to survive, as their bodies will dry out within a matter of days. They’re very passive, and generally won’t do more than observe unless they feel threatened. The spikes on their heads are sharp, and they won’t hesitate to fend off a threat by either headbutting or spraying water.

The mushrooms that grow on their backs are edible and highly nutritious. This in combination with how quickly they grow back and the ease of harvesting them make these Mongershrooms, as they’re commonly referred to, a popular and sustainable food source. Wild Fungusmongers won’t put up with someone trying to harvest their mushrooms, but ones raised in captivity usually don’t mind the process. If a Fungusmonger happens to particularly enjoy the company of their handler, they will pluck a mushroom off of themselves and offer it as a gift.
