I wasn’t sure where I should post this, so I figured that hacks was a safe place. Here’s a write-up I did on a fish:
Game: Mouse Guard
The lake sturgeon is a huge, ancient fish. It’s rarely seen, except by a few fisher-mice who tell of it’s enormous size. They can grow as old as 100 years, and some have known the territories before the Guard was established. Sturgeon prefer shallow lakes and rivers, where they feed upon crayfish, insect larvae, worms, and other small fish. They do not have teeth, using their elongated, spade-like snout to stir up the sand and silt on the beds of rivers and lakes while feeding. This non-bony fish weirdly has no scales but is covered with five rows of bone-like plates on its back, sides, and stomach.
Because of it’s extremely old age, lake sturgeon do not spawn until almost a third into it’s life. Some lake-dwelling mice track individual sturgeon’s life cycles to take advantage of this time when their eggs or roe can be harvested. Lake sturgeon for the most part are unseen and do not interact with mice. Some don’t believe that they exist, and very few have ever tasted their delicacies.
