Isomara (Eye-so-mare-ah), or for short Iso, are semi-aquatic mammals with huge paws and manes and are often classified as dragons. They have feathered wings and large rounded canine teeth.
The name Isos comes from the Greek word meaning equal.
All information in this journal primarily pertains to the Standard Isomara breed.

    A Standard Adult Isomara can range anywhere from four feet to barely seven feet from paw to head when standing on their hind legs. Isomara which range below four feet as adults are considered to have dwarfism and Isomara taller than seven feet are labeled with gigantism. Isomara are not often born with dwarfism or gigantism and cannot always control their heights, but we hear Hasha's Hut has some items which will allow you to alter your Isomara's height whenever you want!
    *On the official imports on IsomaraIndex whether the Isomara is feral or anthro stance the height is based on if the Isomara was to stand up straight on its hind legs.

    Dwarfism: 3'0'' - 3'11'' | 91 cm - 119 cm
    Average:   4'0'' - 6'11'' | 121 cm - 210 cm
    Gigantism: 7'0'' - 8'11'' | 213 cm - 271 cm

    Isomara can be a variety of body types. Most commonly they are lean and lanky, but they can develop quite the amount of muscle or blubber. You may draw your Isomara with whatever body type you'd like!

    Isomara can have different wing sizes. The first is large wings, these Isomara are labeled Flyers and are much more adept at flying higher and for longer periods of time. Small winged Isomara are called Swimmers as they cannot fly as well and will take to swimming more often. Having smaller wings means less weight holding the Isomara back from swimming (Wing span goes from one tip of one wing to the tip of the other wing).

    Flyers: 9'0'' - 10'5'' | 274 cm - 317 cm
    Swimmers: 4'0'' - 5'5'' | 121 cm - 165 cm

    Isomara are normally slender at the waist with a larger rib cage. Their paws are massive to counter their small thin arms and legs. They have hard skulls and flexible spines. Isomara do not have paw pads on the bottom of their paws. Their running is very flat footed and some may say goofy looking. 
    Thick dense fur covers the whole body. Their body fur is similar to that of an otter. The other type of fur that covers select parts of their body is very fluffy and soft. This fur is the Isomara's pride and will keep it groomed to be huge and fluffy. This fluffy fur appears around their neck as a mane, in their ears, and apart of my areas of tail types.

Highly intelligent, they have fully developed brains and can use tools and make structured shacks out of wood, vines, and various other plant and earth material. Isomara have fully developed vocal cords to speak to each other, but many younger Isomara will revert to their native sounds of various "arwoos, Aroofs, and Arrrrs". Isomara are rather calm and mild-mannered, but if one or more gets riled up you better believe you'll hear a cluster of "Arooooooos" as that is a common signal to signify trouble and anxiety. Due to their huge canine teeth, they all have varying degrees of lisps when speaking.
    They do very well with other species and always try to make friends before foes. Most rarely feel hatred for something, but will be standoffish towards dangerous things such as their natural predators, Memics.
    Isomara have a natural curiosity to adventure and collect and have used this curiosity in their society to assign jobs and skills to certain Isomara, to aid the whole species.

    Fun fact: When Isomara get wet, glands on their skin secret an aroma. The aroma varies from Isomara to Isomara but always has an aromatic floral scent. An Isomara's scent can be chosen by it's owner and can be based on any existing flower/plant in the world. Isomara who have the special trait, No Scent, have no flowery aroma and thus some say have a natural camouflage against creatures who rely on scent to seek out prey.

        Isomaras can blow bubbles averaging in sizes. These bubbles are thicker and stickier than the average soap bubble. The biggest one ever recorded roughly 3.5 ft in diameter. The color of the bubbles depends on your Isomara's colors. Normally they are similar to a color that appears on the Isomara's pelt, their webbing, or their eyes. The bubble is usually made of saliva, but if an Isomara is holding any kind of liquid in their mouths they can mix saliva with it to make bubbles of that liquid. This is the only time the bubble will appear as a different color if your isomara has a colored liquid in its mouth.
        Blowing bubbles are not just for fun they can utilized in many of way. At times mother and father Isomara will mix mashed food and liquid in a saliva bubble to help young Isolings eat food. Adult Isomara usually grow out of this as they can find it disgusting (some tend to just leave out the mashed food and leave in the liquid as an easy drink).
        Air bubbles can act as scuba tanks and allow Isomara to be underwater for longer periods of time. While the average adult standard Isomara can hold their breath for 9-12 minutes when utilizing an air bubble they hold time can increase by up to 3-5 minutes.

        Isomara do understand the concept of rhythm, repetition, and sound. However, they are not always very coordinated. They also cannot sing like how humans can but will utilize their native sounds. Sometimes you may hear the noises of simple instruments such as drums and tambourines as well many Isomara "Arwoo'ing" into the night. Wind instruments have been invented, but are not often used as Isomara have difficulties forming a proper channel of air from their mouth due to their large canine teeth. 

    ~65 years; Isomara age to adulthood very quickly. It is best to compare an Isomara's aging to a Horses. By the time the Isoling are a year old they would be the same as an 8-year-old human child.
    Isomara are omnivores. They feast on a variety of fish, crustaceans, plant material, Memic eggs and more. Squid is a common favorite among Isomara. Isomara also like to dabble in creating new food combinations with different palettes and flavors.

It is not uncommon for Isomara to have multiple mates, they often choose mates based on strong bonds, but some Isomara believe to only mate with other Isomara who are skilled and well trained. Once they have eyes on a mate each Isomara will search out a precious gem to give to the other to cherish. They will then work together to build a nest for the upcoming egg(s). 
    There is no mating season for Isomaras, but courtships commonly happen in the cooler months as other Isos will try to find someone to share warmth with.
