North Skathan Forest and Yaluup


Here we see Yaluup, a Northern Gapuri, perched on the branch of a large Bulb Fungus. The Bulb Fungus have glowing spore bulbs that attract insects and other small animals to them. The bulbs have a reservoir of a sweet nectar like liquid in the base, while the insides of the bulbs are line with hundreds of thousands of spores. When an animal reaches in for the nectar they are covered with hundreds of spores which they then disperse throughout the underbrush.
