The Selkie Wiki

This list shows all animal species endemic to the Free Lands, meaning, that they are unique to only the Free Lands, despite best efforts to export create larger populations of these animals outside of zoos and pets. While quite a few of these animals now live outside of the Free Lands, mostly as pets to Selkie in Diaspora, they mostly live in the Free Lands and there alone. Not listed are Selkie-Horses.

The list is devided into four major segments: Living in the Mainland (including a seperate list of animals living in the Great Woods), Living in the Northern Islands, Living in the Oileánra-Archipelago and Living in the Great Sea. The names of most of the animals will be the English names for easier finding.

We would also like to remind all browsers of an old saying of the Selkie: "Our lands are the magical place on earth where everything living there is trying to kill you."

(OOC-Note: Many of these creatures will be reminiscent of different monsters and creatures of video-game fame, in particular Pokémon - only their pictures, with the appropriate source, will be used, not their other, more fantastic abilities.)
