Hoppers look smaller than they actually are due to the fact that they are often found crouching and scuttling low to the ground. You should never underestimate these creatures if you come across one in the wild, however, as that mistake might end up being your last.
Blessed with incredibly strong legs and foreheads that are as hard as concrete, these creatures take down their prey by jumping towards their opponent and spearing them with their heads. The strike, more often than not, is strong enough to take down a fully grown man and a direct hit to your head can be fatal. Usually eating roots, these omnivorous creatures will also eat meat when they can get their claws on it.
Hoppers are social creatures by nature and usually belong to large groups or clusters. They reproduce rapidly but once a cluster starts to grow too large, the strongest members of the group will branch out and create new clusters in a different region. Usually found in the more temperate areas of Erridose, they do not like extreme temperatures in either direction.
When hunting, Hoppers are slow and methodical with their kills. When taking on something larger than themselves, they will surround the target and jump in one at a time with fast headbutts until the target is knocked unconscious or dead which is when they move in to feast on the carcass, leaving only the skeleton behind.
