Desert Fauna: The Xohuiac

The Xohuiac is one of the most fearsome creatures you can find around the desert plateau of the southern hemisphere. Standing at the top of the food chain, it doesn't have natural predators. Xohuiacs are mainly found dead during the mating season where only the dominant male get to defeat the weak one, causing its death. The neck is made of porous muscles allowing the Xohuiac to retract it inside its body during sleep.
