Toci1 - Bigfoot Murggle by Tapejara Toci1 - Bigfoot Murggle by Tapejara
Like the cryptid from which it gets its name, the Bigfoot Murggle is an elusive creature. They were only encountered a handful of times during surveys of Toci1 and each time it was only for a few minutes. They were actually initially known only by their footprints whose size puzzled some astrobiologists. They did not even consider it belonged to a Murggle since the prints were two-toed instead of three (the Quillback Murggle had yet to be discovered). Also, the prints suggested an animal of enormous size but none of the vegetation found near the tracks sustained any damage.

Months later, the first Bigfoot Murggle was filmed at the equator by a probe who responded to the sound of a fallen tree. The source of the commotion was a bizarre herbivore with a very slender body but drastically large feet and toe nails. Upon closer examination however, the animal was alerted by the probe's presence and quickly waddled away. Every other encounter afterwards found Bigfoot Murggles wandering on their own which is strange considering all species of Murggles are social animals and have numerous time been observed living among a group when necessary. Even the footprints suggests that these animals migrate together in search of seasonal plants. For now, the closest evidence we have of social behavior was a minute long video of a male and female greeting each other. We know nothing else about these animals.

FUN FACTS:
:bulletgreen: Female Bigfoot Murggles are completely white with yellow "hair" (which is really loose skin that was dyed by sunlight. Due to the loose skin trailing behind them, a female Bigfoot Murggle is called a Bride.
:bulletgreen: There is a theory that Bigfoot Murggles and maybe even Quillbacks were once three-toed but two of the digits have fused together over the course of evolution.
