A massive stocky pachyderm with small eyes and ears, thick and heavy body and stubby legs. The ploderos grazes all day long plodding steadily from one pasture ground to the next seemingly oblivious to the dangers around. Its thick red hairless hide and the hard horny protective cover of its head presents a formidable defense against preying carnivores. However, if menaced the ploderos will stand and fight methodically ramming its adversary with the full weight of its slow-moving though massive body. Grazes in jungle and desert areas.
