A rare type of small furry animals. They are dark brown and move by leaping along the ground, as they do not have legs. They are ill-suited to cold weather, and turn a pale blue colour if exposed to this. Their fur has many areas of dark and light in rings, and they have large ears, used in the hot weather they are adapted to to increase heat loss. Their young are smaller imitations of adults, which reach a total height of about 30cm. Leapers seem to be delicious to Raptors as Hoerk licked his lips when he saw a few of them leaping around in Fire and Ice. They may go into a state of hibernation in the cold, as when they were melted from the ice they were fine.
