Sheepsquatches are large woolly-haired cryptids with quills, mangy white fur and large horns found in Appalachia in 2102.
Standing approximately ten feet tall, the sheepsquatch is a huge cryptid bearing resemblance to a sheep. Sheepsquatches possess a set of large horns protruding directly from the sides of their heads. Their skin is pink and raw, with large quills poking out from their upper back. Despite their resemblance to sheep, their wool is stiff and gray, with only meager patches visible on the animal. Their faces appear almost skeletal, especially around the nose area. Their eyes are large and fish-like, with rectangular pupils typical of normal sheep and goats. They have small ears, dwarfed by their massive horns. They have large jowls, prominent especially when howling. Their teeth are small and flat, like that of a herbivore. However, sheepsquatches are carnivores. They have a potbelly and 3 large claws on each hand. They stand on two legs, on large hooves. Their legs have inverted knees, similar to that of a dog's legs, and they have a short tail.
Sheepsquatches communicate through howls and groans, with long, somber, drawn-out moans. This noise appears to come from the unique way that they vibrate their jowls when calling out. This method of calling allows them to change the pitch quickly and easily, in order to convey what they want to.
They appear to be solitary, however in the
Free Range event, more than one can appear at the end of the event.
