Created on April 11 2005, the Tamaranian Hopper is a creature that was originally native to the planet of Tamaran, also native was the Willosaur, which was one of their two known predators (the other being Splodey). Hoppers were social, and tended to live in small herds grazing, and then moving on once they felt they had consumed enough from that area.
Probably the most peculiar thing about Tamaranian Hoppers is their means of locomotion. Hoppers moved salially (i.e. they hop to get around) upon a single double-jointed leg. They can be seen as a slight cameo in Civilization Stage when Black Cloud is used. They fall from the cloud making citizens unhappy.
