The shagrat is a sheep sized marmot that lives 5 million years in the future. This creature lives across Europe, Asia and North America. It maintains this range as a result of a very powerful ice age during that time. This wooly creature resembles a Capybara combined with a Bison or Musk Ox. The diet of a shagrat is centered around small tundratic or boreal shrubs and grasses, however flowers, roots & many other plants could also contribute to it's diet. The Shagrats behavior is similar to musk oxen as they form fierce protective circles around the young, elderly or weak and have a strong herd mentality.
