Like the ploderos, the slow-moving madakam is a solid lump of a creature able to nonchalantly amble around grazing fearless of potential predators thanks to its massive horny head and thick hide. It has small eyes and ears, stumpy three toed limbs and a stocky body clad in a heavy dome-shaped shell. Its triangular head is armed with an impressive machete-like horn which the madakam will use to lethal effect if menaced. This omnivore is equipped with small teeth for ripping and munching grass and roots. Occurs mainly in the forest and jungle regions.
