known as Tyflopontikapros in Greece and Talpaprum in Rome, it's more common in northern europe. This mole-boar hybrid uses its tusks and hooves to burrow. It's about the size of a large boar..
Preeettty much blind, it gets around with its nose.. it can smell delicious fat tubers through like six feet of dirt.
That fungus isn't taking over its mind or anything, but contact with it tends to alter your brain chemistry to make you not care that there's fungus growing on you. You can find it growing along the ceiling of tunnels molgaltar dig. (that's the plural!)
I made up a cool creature today eee

KICKASS :D I can definitely see the mole in there, that's awesome. Two animals I'm surprised were never combined visually.

Are those mushrooms supposed to be glowing?

nah, but i had so much trouble with their color balance i'm not surprised they look like it.
you know it's not a bad idea though, instead of a blind digger, something with cat-type night vision that needs a mild light source to see, so it carries glowing fungi...
