Leebers, reebos, and spolis are animals that live in the
Sirabu Lochi of planet Nobu. Through evolution
by natural selection, each species has made various
adaptations in order to survive in the very hot and dry
climate of the Sirabu Lochi.



The leeber is the largest animal that lives in Sirabu Lochi.
This species has acquired large thin ears, which allow for
excess body-heat release to keep the body temperature from
overheating (thermoregulation). Leebers have thick, scaly skin,
which helps the species conserve water. Leebers walk on all
four limbs and their long, skinny legs and arms help keep their
bodies away from the hot ground. Like camels, leebers store fat
(in their mid-section) that is kept away from other body parts to
stop from overheating. This fat storage can also metabolize to
form water. This is necessary because, as we know, water is
scarce in Sirabu Lochi! Leebers’ thick eyelids protect from sun
damage and their pads on their hands and feet keep them from
getting too hot. Leebers lives in small communities in sand
mounds above ground. They use their claws on both their hands
and feet to dig through the rough, hot ground to collect material
for building their homes. Leebers drink water and eat both
spochi plants (see Sirabu Lochi Plants) as well as spoli
(see below). Because spochi only blossom in the winter season,
leebers have developed the ability to store food in their system
for great lengths of time.


The reebo is the smallest creature living in Sirabu Lochi. The reebo is a small
crab-like creature that walks on four small legs with sharp tips that help the animal
balance in the hard, hot sand. Reebos eat the small red seeds that fall from the bali plant
(see Sirabu Lochi Plants). The large shell of the reebo serves as protection and acts as a
storage compartment for food and water. Reebo live underground tunnels that they
dig and form underground. Spoli (see bellow) prey on reebo.


Spolis are the creatures in Sirabu Lochi that drink water and eat only reebo.
Spolis are preyed upon by leebers. Like leebers, spolis also have scaly skin to protect
them from the harsh heat and to help minimize water loss. The long thin
bodies of spoil allow for excess body-heat release to keep the body temperature from
overheating (thermoregulation). Like leebers, spolis also store fat (in their backside).
This fat storage can metabolize to form water and keep the body cooler.
The spoli’s long, sharp, venomous tongue aids in capturing and killing their
prey (reebos: see above). Spolis live and find shade under fields of bali plants
(see Sirabu Lochi Plants). The feces of spoils provide balis with nutrient rich
elements that enable them to grow most efficiently (symbiotic relationship).
