Wild pigs covered in moss and fungus. Sometimes mushrooms can even be found growing on them. Their meat is known as a delicacy. Though normally docile, they will charge at a hunter if angered.
Order Artiodactyla, they are in the same genus as bullfango, although far less aggressive.
Mosswine can be observed in any climate that supports a large amount of plant life. They are most commonly found in the jungle, forest & hills, and Sea of Trees. Given their small stature, they most likely need areas of dense vegetation to hide them from larger predators. They appear to have almost no adaptations to survive in extreme hot or cold areas, and the lack of grasses and shrubs in those areas would offer little sustanance for Mosswine.
A lowly herbivore. Mosswine serve as an easy food source to predators and are a constant nuisance to hunters. Their trademark moss and mushrooms growing on their back is both natural camouflage and an emergency food source.
Mosswine possess a short, stout nose -much like real pigs- that has a keen sense of smell and helps dig up mushrooms and roots. Mosswine's only form of self-defense is the bony armored plate on their forehead. They will ram enemies as a last resort, and, although it causes little actual damage, is a source of endless discontent by hunters. Mosswine also grow moss and mushrooms on their backs, with which they have a symbiotic relationship.
