A omnivorous creature feeding especially on berries and nuts which it stores in its pouch-like gullet. Its saliva has a conserving effect on the fruit. Has a small round tail, stiff hairs on its back, and eyes set at 180° apart on fleshy stems sprouting from the sides of its head. A deceivingly dangerous animal, the zerx will spit out fruit, pips and acid, and uses its tusks - also used to shake trees - to get the better of any rival. The zerx can be found all over Atys barring the forest.
