Welcome to Syelmzen Adopts, where you can adopt the Syelmzen, more commonly known as the Zen. All the adoptions will be different, some FCFS, some art or story contests, and others "nth post on nth page" and random fun-fact forms. There is something for everyone!
What Exactly is a Syelmzen?
A Syelmzen, more commonly known as a Zen, is a dog-sized mainly aquatic creature. The tallest a Zen can grow to be is about 40 Inches (101.6 Centimeters) and the smallest about 20 Inches (50.8 Centimeters), and most range between those two numbers. They aren't the most social creatures, but are easy to train and can become loyal companions. They can breathe air along with both salt and fresh water, although they prefer to be in cool fresh water. They also dislike being dry around the gills, so they should be wet with cool fresh water every three-four hours, depending on how much activity the Zen has been doing. They are omnivores, but prefer meat, specifically freshwater fish, their natural food. They are intelligent, but have never learned to speak. Their coats are often covered with natural or detailed designs, and a plain-colored Zen is rather rare. Their coats can mimic that of many animals, but you will commonly see a Zen with stripes. Their base coats are normally dark, but can vary.
Male Zens are the same size as female Zens, but males have a short back frill and curved horns.
Their dots are bioluminesence that you can use to gauge their mood. When a Zen is depressed, sad, or scared, it's lights will become dim. When they are happy, angry, or calm their lights will become bright.
