Pluffm

Pluff'ms were mammals native to the Endless Forest. Roughly as tall as a Podling's knee, Pluff'ms were characterized by their large eyes, three nostrils, bright green fur and webbed fingers. They were equally at home in trees and the forest floor, and primarily fed on tree bark.[1]

Pluff'ms retained their disproportionately large eyes even in adulthood, a trait thought to be a defense mechanism which prompted would-be predators to find the animal appealing and adopt it. Many Gelfling were deceived by this facade and took them as pets, only to discover too late their mischievous nature and their habit of eating book pages.[1]
