While the majority of the Taptup's traits are similar to that of a bird,(specifically the Hoatzin), it shares some traits with mammals,such as it having teeth and stout,little legs.But as mentioned before, it is mostly bird-like, due to it's wings, feathers, and hopping-running gait. Taptup's may be a mammal due to them being able to open tunnels with ease, possibly implying that the species may be related to moles.
