The Dwarf Pinyuk split from its ancestor the Pinyuk. It has gotten smaller in size filling the niche of small herbivore, similar to Earth rabbits. Like rabbits they are fast breeders. They produce large clutches of hard shelled eggs similar to turtles and crocodiles.
They build saucer-shaped nests out of mud, fuzzweeds, and their own feathers. When nesting, the females will sit on their eggs in order to keep them warm, and remove excess feathers to keep them cool. Once hatched, females remain in the nests with their offspring and males go out to search for food. Dwarf Pinyuks lay 40-60 eggs at a time. However, very few reach breeding age.
Its "eye-ears" are larger to both improve hearing and disperse heat. Like their ancestors their feathers are like those of of Earth-birds. Its four legs have two hoofed toes while its tail-leg has three hoofed toes. This back foot helps them leap away from predators, while the other legs help in its quick bounding.
Its coloration of purple helps blend in with the purple flora while its blue legs help it blend in with the glass flora. Much like its ancestor, the dwarf pinyuk consumes glass flora, purple flora, shrooms and black flora and is a generalist, browsing and grazing on different kinds of flora that it can find. When eating this flora, they crush up the flora and eat gastroliths to help mash any remaining pieces of food that were not crushed by their teeth.
The dwarf pinyuk lives in groups of 20-40 members that communicate to each other with screeching calls. Males fight for females by charging, biting, and rearing up on their tails and crashing down on each other. This can result in injuries or death. The male is recognized by its larger chin-spike and orange feathery crest.
