||Anaxial's Annex. The p'tunga is a horse-like animal common on the plains of central Pamaltela. In the God Time, the Viyorni brought true horses to the southern continent, but Pamalt and his tribe saw them for hulking mockeries of the p'tunga, and the clover of the plains turned against them, making them ill. Now, no true horses can survive for long in the Pamaltelan interior, although the native p'tungas live without difficulty.
The creatures are the size of a large deer, and have three hooved toes on each foot, but in other respects look much like typical horses. Their meat is somewhat stringy and tough, so that they are only rarely hunted by the local Doraddi and Veldang, although the local predators have no such compunction.
