The Belluk is a type of ravenous beast which is indigenous to the hinterlands, wastelands and the Slumbering Dunes. It is a mammal (hairless) which always bears live young and is the natural enemy of the Dog, the Dog-Boar and the Tiger-Dog. It is carnivorous but is fearful of men and camels. Its natural prey include the Fanged Impala, the Horned Mountain Crab and the Carnivorous Goat. It will sometimes follow caravans at a distance, and has been known to beg hand-outs by approximating human speech. Its words are hopelessly garbled, like a bad radio transmission. They form mated pairs when the Blue or Red Moon waxes, and separate soon after.
