The baspoor glider, sometimes called the "sky swimmer" for its fishlike appearance, was an omnivorous flying amphibian often found on temperate worlds. Its unique physiology allowed it to "land" in water, where it could continue to propel itself with its powerful wings. It had very little mobility on solid surfaces, and had difficulty taking flight again should it find itself grounded.
The young of the baspoor glider were carried on its mother's back for the first few months of life and had a highly unusual diet. Children gnawed at the skin of the mother for nourishment while the mother focused on her own needs--her trivial injuries healing quickly each day.
