They have water on their bellies and each is based off of a flower, they are also required to have a fishy friend!! When they go in the water their water blends in with the other body of water. Once they're in the water their fishy friend can swim in and out but they can communicate with each other so that one doesn't wander off without the other! If the fish wanders off too far or the raccoon leaves before the fish can get back, they feel really tired and have an instinct to want to go nearer to each other. They're freshwater based and live around a lake, working together to help each other, though they can't touch salt water or they'll get sick!
When a [ThinkOfSpeciesNameLaterLOL] is born, their bellies are empty and there are flower seeds inside. At 2 weeks their mother takes them to the lake and their bellies fill with water, making the flowers grow. They find a fishy friend they connect with from the lake soon afterwards, from as early as that day to the latest usually being 3 months later. Once the fishy enters the raccoon's body water, the fish will not die until the raccoon dies.
They don't have a set lifespan and at 2 years they "mature", never growing again. They cannot die of age but can die of anything else. (i.e. sickness, accidents, etc.)
They reproduce from sitting on top of a mountain for 2 years by getting enough energy from the sun to have children. They don't have genders, just feminine or masculine or gender neutral appearances or pronouns
They run a trade-systematic government, where everyone trades. The "government" really only has control over the trade system and they set laws so that if you break those laws, you are forbidden to trade and you can't really get by without trading. The laws are; No theft/stealing No murder No cannibalism You cannot eat fish or flowers You cannot scam No destruction of other people's property No public endangerment NSWF images is illegal
They have a partially direct democracy where they all work together to create laws.
