Skidil are quadruped mammals about a foot big, with a long tail reaching about five or six feet. They have small teeth that can eat both meat and plants, and claws used for digging or climbing trees. They are covered in soft, fluffy fur that is usually a white or gray color. More unusual colors of skidil can be black, gold or orange. Small and lightweight, but hardier than it looks, skidil are able to survive many harsh weather conditions. The tail is the fluffiest area of the skidil and is quite soft, used to keep warm in addition to their thick fur. Albinism, melanism, and erythrism is possible but rare as these skidil are often spotted easily against their usual habitat.
Skidil use their tail to carry their children, keeping themselves and their children warm during cold weather, or even storing small trinkets they find in their fur. They're more often than not crepuscular and are most active at dawn or dusk, being viciously protective with their trinkets and children. They're known for adopting unattended babies of other species and raising them among their usual number of two or three children, not letting anyone take even their adopted babies.
They use holes in trees as their homes, or even making burrows, sometimes using old bird nests and other materials to keep the warmth in their hole from seeping out.
Jungle: A jungle skidil is more tan, brown or dark colored, with less fur and shorter tails. They aren't as durable to the cold and have short fur unlike any other kind of skidil, as well as being noticeably smaller.
Designer: The designer skidil is specifically bred to have softer, longer, fluffier and more silky fur, with a much wider range of fur colors. These kinds of skidil are the biggest, often raised to become scarves or fabric.
Domesticated: A domesticated skidil can be a wonderful pet, as they're very affectionate and protective of their owners. They sometimes "adopt" their owners, trying to stay near or on them at all times. They're known to run about the house a lot and are about the same size of a wild skidil, but lack the more aggressive attitude, with duller teeth and claws. Like designer skidil, they have a larger range of fur colors.
• Skidil will sometimes steal shiny things right out of people's hands if it happens to take their fancy.
• Occasionally a skidil will mistake someone's else's child as their own and attempt to "steal it back."
