Frilled Monopods, as their name suggests, have only one leg. They hop on this one leg at 55 miles per hour. It is capable of delivering a bone breaking kick if threatened. The tail of the monopod acts as a balance. The tail can also be used as a second limb or as a support. The frill is very sticky and is used to catch any small creature or seed that crosses the monopod’s path. After catching food, it uses its tongue, which is covered in saliva that counterattacks the frill’s stickiness, to lick up the food. The frill is also reflective. The dome on the Monopod’s head can flash with bioluminescence and reflect off the frill creating a blinding flash. The Monopod closes its eyes when it does this. As another defense, the back is covered in thick skeletal armor.
Frilled Monopods coexist with Manibeasts. They provide the manibeasts with an early warning system to danger. Monopods place sentries at the edges of the herd that stand on their tails and use the better eyesight to spot predators. Manibeasts provide protection. When feeding Monopods hop with their frill open and catch everything that is in the air.
