This is where the rare white-bellied sneeloph lives. As it is a nocturnal animal, during the day, the sneeloph rests underground or in a cool, dark place, such as a pile of leaves and twigs. Then at night, the sneeloph comes out to scavenge. It is essential for this creature to dwell near water, for its diet consists mainly of small insects, which aren't rich in H2O. The sneeloph spends much of its active hours digging for bugs, so it needs water to keep it cool. It must constantly jump in and out of water so it won't overheat. Small freshwater ponds, streams, and creeks are ideal for it. The white-bellied sneeloph uses camoflage to blend in with it's surroundings. Its back has a leaf-like pattern on it to make any bird predators think that it is foliage. And as for its trademark white belly, when it is swimming, any fish, snakes, or alligators will confuse it with the moon's reflection on the water. When the white-bellied sneelph is fully grown (about two years old) it gets together with other sneelophs and has snirks (the name for baby sneelophs). It raises the snirks underground until they're big and strong enough to run and dig on their own. Then the mother teaches her snirks how to survive in the wild. When the snirks reach about eighteen months old, they leave the burrow to become adult sneelophs.
