Zalt Amphorians, also informally known as the Purple Amphorians are one of the four Amphorian species. Zalt Amphorians are the most frog-like of the Amphorians, built to be able to leap large distances quickly to flee predators such as the Salamand; however they're also capable of walking and swimming, though not to the levels of Diplods. They are still better at swimming than Zoaraptors and Massocions, however. While all Amphorians are venomous to a degree, their skin is the most toxic of the four species. They also possess a tongue coated in neurotoxin that can be shot out for a ranged attack at foes to stun and paralyze them. Though they possess retractable fangs, they are small and do not inject poison. It was the Zalts whom the Lorcian Empire hunted, leading to Amphor's escape and the banding together of the four Amphorian races in order to fight back against the Lorcian Empire.

PhysiologyEdit

Zalts are perfectly at home both in the water and on land, and have very powerful legs that allow them to jump long or high distances.

SkeletonEdit

Musculatory SystemEdit

Most muscles in the Zalt's body are located in the legs, to allow for their major defense - leaping away. They can leap distances of up to 20 feet with enough force, and this is generally used to leap from the land and into the water, where they can let their swimming abilities take over. Their arms are also quite muscled, allowing them to climb trees in addition to their use as swimming utensils.
