All true leupaks display all of the following traits:
Perhaps the most familiar part of leupak anatomy, a leupak's clawtongue functions as an eating device, extra limb, venom injector, and ovipositor.
It is hollow, and tipped with anywhere from one to five sharp claws which typically form a functional hand or spear of sorts used for grasping hold of objects or prey.
Clawtongues can be spat from the mouth like a chameleon or frog's tongue, but not all leupaks can perform this trick skillfully.
While shape, size, number and orientation vary immensely, all leupaks have expressive, external ears capable of swiveling on the head.
Round Bodies with Thick, Rubbery Skin
Average leupaks are very similar in build to hippopotami.
Large, scaly, intelligent, venomous monster hippopotami full of parasitic eggs.
Their oily, elastic skins and unique muscular system grants them incredible control-- this is how many leupaks peform the legendary monster-under-the-bed trick (or even in the dresser drawer!), despite their size.
Venom and Egg Sacs (Regardless of "gender"!)
All leupaks produce Eggs and miratoxin, a mutagenic, miraplasm-based venom typically injected with the tongueclaw or chewed in with the teeth.
Leupaks are asexual, parasitic monsters-- once planted in a host, the egg gathers the remaining genetic material needed in order to develop and hatch.
Gender is largely a personal preference for leupaks who bother to identify with one.
An Omnivorous Diet (Complimented With Blood!)
All leupaks are omnivores, though they especially enjoy meat and sweets.
From time to time, however, leupaks must supplement their diets with pure blood (typically leeched from prey through the tongueclaw) for good health and development of eggs.
