European Dylanus

This European dylanus successfully catches a perch.

The European Dylanus is indigenous to forests and grasslands of Europe. It resembles an American common dylanus, but has short fur that covers its body and its legs are more like that of a Dylanus Edwienus, so it could escape from most predators, it also has wide noses to help warm up the air they breathe, and slightly larger eyes for living in both day and night. It feeds on fruit, insects, fish, frogs, lizards, nonpoisonous snakes, bird eggs, carrion, and small mammals.
