Midnight moths​
Midnight moths are classified as mammals despite the moth like apperance.
They are verbal creatures, communicating with chirps, barks, roars, purrs, and huffs.
They normally live in a hive, being that they are very social creatures and can get lonely and depressed without fellow moths around, and that safety is in numbers.
They are omnivores, eatting; moss, fruit, deer, cattle, and moutain goats. They will store as much moss as they can in small caves that aren't already inhabited. If one does accidentally store food in others den, it will get shoved out by a very angry moth. Moss is their main way of getting water but if their cave has a water source, they will happily drink out of that.
Where they live:
They live up in moutians, in large caves or underground ravines. Smaller caves connect together are normally where their dens and food storerooms are, with it connecting to the ravine or large cave.​
They are tameable and there are a few reasons to do so. Mainly to guard something or to just have a fluffy, cuddly moth around.
A few hours after being born, the pups can start walking, albeit very clumsily. Pups are born in litters, with the litter being two to six. They stay in the den until they can fly which takes a few days, they start following their mother or father around then, watching them. If they aren't with their parents, they are playing and wrestling around with other pups. Pups are watched over by workers when their parents are busy, being cared of until the parents come back.
Interactions with people:​
Most interaction with humans aren't good, with moths stealing and eatting cattle to humans killing and using moths fur for luxurious rugs, jackets, and other items.. It has put a big dent in human and moth relasonships. The relationships between human and moth does vary from hive to hive though, with the best interactions being that they help eachother out, and the worst being the moths or humans to start an all out war. Sometimes, they barely interact, just leaving eachother alone.
Villages start growing:​
It varys how the moths react to villages growing and getting closer to the caves. Most start getting anxious, watching closely if it gets any closer and if it does, start looking for a cave farther from the village. More calm hives might get curious and check things out, going to look around the village at night at interact with things around there. And friendlier hives will go to say hi to the humans, relaxing around town and are much easier to tame.
Smell: They have a pretty good sense of smell, they use it to hunt and find the hive.
Sight: Guards have better eyesight then Workers, being more use to sunlight. They both can see in the dark very well, but like to decorate cave halls with glowing moss or other things. Glowing things are very pretty to them and can be used to distract them, wether it be a glowstick or lasers pointer. They are also known to huddle around cabins that have their lights on late at night.
Hearing: They have a normal sense of hearing.
Touch: They can feel just like a normal human and will decorate dens with soft things being, moss, wool from sheep and even so blankets. All this will be made into a comfy bed to sleep in.
Class: Workers
They are normally calm, sweet creatures. They can be easily annoyed sometimes and they will shove any unwanted vistiors out of the hive if pestered enough. But one sure fire way to anger them is by messing with the babies or getting to close to the king/queen inwhich they'll form a blockade and shove you out with the guards.
Class: Guards
Guards are more fluffy then workers, since they normally are outside in the cold, hunting or on partol. They protect the hive with their lives, attacking anything they can see as a threat. Guards are more fearsome, but if you raise one yourself or tame an adult, you can get a loyal, companion.
How they act during different seasons
Spring: In spring, they are shedding the fluff that built up during the winter. Guards are back outside, and are more calm then normal so this is the best time to try to tame one, be careful still though. They will gather food way more now. Workers are more stressed though, since the hive is less guarded because all the guards are looking for food so the workers have to deal with any unwanted visitors, shoving them out with angry chirps. They also clean the hive angrily, shoving that out of the hive too so your probably going to land in a pile of fur and old moss.
Summer: Everything gets hotter and thus you'll find some guards rolling around in the mud. But they are also more annoyed whenever they have to leave the hive. They are on partol more often, attacking anything and everything that moves because of their frusteration. The hive is very hot and Workers will leave the hive more often to get a break, they will also bath in underwater lakes if their cave has them.
Fall: It gets cooler, which feels amazing for the moths. But that is ruined by the stress the whole hive gets. Guards are gathering food to prepare for winter, they also grow out their coats for winter too. Workers are stressed too, storing the food and making sure the dens are ready for hibernation, with moss and anything that will warm up the moths when it gets colder.
Winter: Everything has calmed down much more, everyone is inside and huddled together in their dens to hibernate. The hive is most defenceless then, with even the guards sleeping in for the winter near the entrances
