    Templates are for SM only and also this thread needs moving.

    We can still review any proposed templates @Ametheliana , but Wes still gives the final stamp of approval is all.

    Oh no, it's my experience from when I submitted the templates for ships and weapons.

    Well, you already moved it, so no crying over spilled milk.

    For this fauna template though, I suggest some part that addresses its role in the ecosystem, which would include prey and/or predators.

    For clarification; this and the flora template are for non-sentient creatures.

    Like dogs. Or birds. Or stuff like that. Basically, it's a super-simple template for stuff that hasn't previously been logged, should the GMs/FMs/Setting Writers choose to log it.

    For instance, Ira has a list of flora and fauna that he's listed for Gartega; this just expands it a bit and gives that fluff stuff a bit more screentime.

    I'm not sure the More About section header is necessary, especially since it's empty. The template could probably benefit from including some of the more useful items from the existing animal articles, particularly the Otar. We may also want to look at Wikipedia and see what sections they put in their animal articles. The Notable Physical Traits section would be better named "Physiology."
