The short-tailed hissing gog is best known for... you guessed it... being a hissy little bastard! (And also having short tails.) While they are nowhere near as aggressive as skirmies, they can still be quite bold. Generally, before attacking, you'll get a good, thorough hissing first. Otherwise, hissies are like other species of gog in that they have opposable thumbs on both their hands and feet, the ability to digest plastic, and prehensile tails (it may be short but they can still grasp with it!).

Despite their name, hissies actually make fairly good pets. They are easily tameable and domesticable, affectionate, intelligent, and can be house-trained. They also make excellent service animals. Larger males can weigh up to around 25lbs and smaller females may weigh as little as 10lbs but the average is around 15lbs so they are easy to keep indoors. However, they do have a strong nesting tendency which can lead to some destructive and thieving tendencies. This can be mitigated or even avoided altogether by providing an abundance of nesting material (they are quite partial to felt, velvet, and cotton balls).

Could this be the source of the expression "Hissy fit?"

Y' mean something that looks adorably cute, fluffy and lethal isn't actually lethal? So want!

Such a masterpiece. The fur is incredible - I still haven't figured out how to get that kind of effect myself.

Oh, and do I see the froggy up top left, under that big flower?

♥ Thanks!


Alas, no, that is not where froge is. :D As for the fur, I have a tutorial in a folder of my gallery, if you're interested.

Dang, Derp's well camouflaged then, because I spent ages looking though the whole picture. I'll also add that those plants are absolutely fantastic.


I'll definitely have a look at your tutorial, thank you kindly.
