Moogs were small fossorial animals native to the Crystal Desert. They resembled a mixture of a hermit crab and a mole, and were about a foot and a half long at full maturity, with furry bodies covered in protective exoskeletal armor. They lived in burrows underneath rocks, but they often fed and foraged above ground, using their massive armored forelimbs to plow away shallow layers of substrate in the search for insects. Unlike most oviparous animals, they breastfed their offspring after they hatched.[1] Moog bones were used as protection charms by the Dousan Clan.[2]
