this species of foul-smelling beast was native to the marshlands of Kidron. They were solitary scavengers which marked out their territories and defended them from others of their kind. They consumed just about anything, from garbage to carrion to industrial wastes, and fed ravenously when hungry. In general, though, slorks are harmless to other species.Because of their diet, slorks possess an intensely noxious scent, making them exempt from the food chain because no other predator could stand to get close to them. Slorks use their noses to sense their environment by "breathing" vibrations, and a slork with an injured nose was essentially blind to their environment.
