Here's the picture of a Desert culture Teshlin. From now on all Teshlins will look more like this. The tail is now a padle which it uses to shovel dirt, which is used to make their houses which are half under the ground. And the chain it holds in it's hand is a religious symbol for the Desert cultures God.


I guess this dousn't really aply know, but the reason why the Teshlin (Classic) looked like a Naucean was that the Teshlin home world was a zoo planet teraformed by an advanced alien race. And amoung the creatures that were put on the planet were the primitive versions of the Nautian, which evolved into sentience.

No. I mean like you Jungle Tribe is really small. The desert tribe has that fan nose. Things like that.

Well i cannot speak for others but mine in specific have these becuse they were sepearted for longer than humans. For instance the size of jungle tribe are modeled after Earth's African pygmys who were small but not as small as you think. But i thought abrobial life (living in the trees) would make them smaller. As for the desert tribe the crest is to a adpat to the hot climate to help to cool off. Since they branched off the ocean tribe so early they adpated the most. Cause every time you split off a population evolution still continues. With Earth we did not really seperate for too long. While the Nauceans have and did not develp their civiilzation very fast, thus allowing for the outter appearance changes.

Sorry that it's been a while, my schedual's been swamped lately.
Well here's my latest instalment of the teshlin race.

This is a Teshlin islander training for the upcoming canoe race. The creature thats pulling it is known as a Mauwt. It is the desedent of ducks that were brought to the Teshlin home world by the alien race who teraformed the planet. The Mauwt have adapted to life in the open seas and have given up flight. The hind legs have changed into flipers witch it uses to propel itself through the water. I'ts tail is used mainly for stearing, and the front wings have diminished. They are very social creatures witch live in pods much like whales. The Teshlin domesticated the Mauwt and use them to pull their canoe's, Warships, and massive trading hulks. Although Teshlins utalize sails, they prefer using their more rekiable Mauwts. There are also wild Mauwts Witch the Teshlin beleive are the sons and duaghters of their ocean God.

I imagine this is the new picture you wanted added to SporeWiki, but there is a problem recently and I think that's because Zorlac cut off image uploading when he moved the servers.  I'll put this one up when it's fixed :).

Thanks Mason ;D

This is A Teshlin Home stead on the Continent. The continent is dived into four bioms, The fertile east coast witch is hilly and lush. The center of the continent is mountinous. The north weastern corner is desert. Although that region is very dry, plants and animals thrive there because of underground springs. And in the south weatern corner of the continent is the savanna like area witch is shown on the picture. The large tree in the midle grows all over the continent and have been known to grow much taller. The trees have adapted to sprout above underground springs. This is why whole comunities are built around these trees, especialy in the drier areas of the savanha and desert.

This is a Teshlin continental trader. He's bringing his goods to sell at a small east coast village. Trade has become an esential part of both the continental and islander nations way of life., especially in the modern age.
