To some residents, the bugard is known as the "walking head and stomach." Its tiny front claws almost appear nonexistant, hidden on the massive head, stubby body, and two powerful legs. The gaping mouth leads to their most distinctive feature: a pair of giant tusks which they use for many different purposes, from combat to defense to burrowing for food, even for courtship. These titanic teeth are essential to the bugards. Despite their hefty size, they prove to be avid runners and can chase down anything that angers them.
