Orniths are a species of quadrupedal avian used as mounts on Planet Algol. They are stupid, easily spooked, and claustrophobic enough to refuse to enter tight quarters such as narrow tunnels; however they are agile and loyal. Their natural diet consists of seeds, nuts, berries and small animals. They can be fed the same feed as Zorses, but in areas with plentiful untainted flora and fauna they are able to supplement their diet naturally and only require half rations. Their heads resemble that of a parakeet or small parrot; their bodies are equine but with bird feet instead of hooves and a feathers for a tail; and their plumage generally resembles that of parrots, parakeets, pigeons and doves. Especially colorful specimens command a higher price.


  1. Yes Sir. I'm liking what I see here...

  2. All I can think about with Orniths is Budgie album covers...
