Teberfroc

Teberfrocs were small, large-eyed mammals sporting brindled fur and long antennae native to the Endless Forest, the Spriton Plains[1] and the Valley of the urRu.[2]

They lived near water sources to drink and wash their paws. They had a reputation for being incautious, as they slept most of the day in shallow burrows or fallen logs, thus exposing themselves to predators. Gelfling of the Stonewood and Spriton Clans prevented the species' extinction by moving sleeping specimens to safer locations.[1]

At least one specimen was kept in the Chamber of Life, where it broke from captivity and took part in killing skekTek and releasing Kira from the Draining Chair.[2]
