Hooroo- Australian Magic CreatureNAME: Hooroo / Ooroo

The Ooroo is Australia’s biggest and nastiest breed of kangaroo. Luckily, the Terras have eaten most of them and now there is only a few left. The Ooroo is as mad as a march hare and a million times more dangerous. You can not reason with an Ooroo. They attack for no reason and destroy everything in their path. Only the very strongest would dare fight an Ooroo.
In the olden days, when this mythocreat was common, people lived in constant fear of an attack. When someone shouted, “Ooroo,” everyone stopped what they were doing, jumped on their horses and departed in a great hurry. You grabbed your family and ran. Everyone knew that it was time to leave when you heard someone shout, “Ooroo.”


Hoop Snake or HoopsnakesNAME: Hoop Snake
SPECIES TYPE: Pseudo-Serpent
(very low)

The Hoop Snake is a well known mythocreat of Australia.  It’s mode of transport is quite unique.  It swallows its tail forming a circle then propels itself through the outback like the hoop it’s named after.
Hoop Snakes are relatively harmless to humans and animals.  Its venom causes delusions which makes a person go loopy for a few days, (in this state many people have become lost in the bush).  However, to creatures of magic (mythocreats), Hoop Snake venom is a deadly toxin.
A little known fact about the Hoop Snake is on every full moon they spontaneously glow and roll around the Aussie outback looking for a good time.  When people see these strange lights they often mistake them for UFO’s, Will O’ the Wisps, or the mysterious Min Min lights.
