Bauchen

A small animal with graceful flying abilities that would have earned it a nickname if someone ever bothered to come up with something. The horn on its head absorbs water, nutrients from its food (which varies with subspecies), and oxygen, so it does not need an actual mouth or nose.

Young bauchens are born being able to eat normally, though they can’t hunt down food on their own. The mother will bring them food, which the young will stick their horns into and feed off of.

Despite their similarities, the bauchen are not related to the kalrykkians. There’s a rumor that bauchen DNA is one of the ingredients used to make Petrons. This is probably false but cannot be explicitly confirmed or denied at this point.
