Erupe are small to medium sized goat-like Herbivores that are very skittish and somewhat curious. These creatures have specialized hooves that enable them to easily traverse the mountainous Highland region. Erupe are also close relatives of Kelbi and Anteka.
Erupe are herbivores that feed on the multiple grasses and plants of the Highland. However like the common Burukku, these creatures are common prey for the predator species of the Highland that include Gurenzeburu, Pariapuria, Kuarusepusu, Dyuragaua, and Doragyurosu. An Erupe's best defense is its speed as they can be near impossible to catch once they start running. A second method of defense is to hide themselves into tight nooks and crannies where a much larger pursuer such as a Gurenzeburu can't get to.
Erupe are mostly skittish and wary animals that prefer a wide berth. However they have been known to eat food right out of a person's hand and even let people rub and pet them. Erupe are known for a bad behavior of eating anything next to their mouth including some rocks like quartz.
