This unicorn species is can be found in several different Arid climates from the vast sand dunes to the salt pans. this unicorn in moderate in size. its coat is incredibly glossy, the shine helps to reflect sunlight away from its body; this helps to keep the body cool in the hot weather. this feature is much like the gemsbok in Africa. to prevent from overheating and to conserve water, this unicorn employs selective brain cooling. unlike its relatives this unicorn is not a hindgut rumen, its actually a true ruminant; this helps to digest any rough foliage it consumes. the horns on its head are unique; beneath the bulbous portion of the horns there is a small fat storage, this is used much like the humps on a camel. as for the ears they are broad to allow heat to be dissipate. on various areas on this species are lethal quills, at the base of each quill there is a venom pit. when pressure is applied to any quill a potent venom is injected into its victims. although the venom is expensive to make so each quill is colored a bright orange, as a warning. another unique feature of this species is the split tail, although the reason why is not quite known.
the herds are a medium size consisting of 10-15 members. this is a matriarchal society with no sexually mature males present in the group. once a male is sexually mature he is kicked out. the females are usually larger and more aggressive than the males are, so fights and disputes tend to break out frequently within the herd.
