Interesting Facts About Tetsucabra

  • During Breeding Season, males will make huge holes for females to judge before the females lay their eggs in them. The male will fertilize the eggs before carrying them in his bottom jaw until they develop their legs and hatch from the eggs. The father will not eat anything until the eggs hatch out of his mouth.
  • To survive the cold of the Frozen Seaway, it produces a strange oil around itself that holds heat, which Zamtrios and the Zamite also use to keep themselves warm.
  • When it spine retracts, its tail inflates, possibly for extra balance while doing certain attacks and while picking up or holding huge boulders.
  • Tetsucabra will attack and eat almost anything that moves like real-life frogs.
  • Order: Caudata - Suborder: Demon Frog - Family: Cabra
