At time of conception, original Jubokko ponies start out as actual trees; having no actual mystic ability to be mobil. After years of being near battlefields, the essence of the very ponies that had fallen become apart of the tree and give it new life as what it is now.
In this state, it takes a few weeks for it to gain enough strength to explore the world, having to feed until its strength is full.
When born from a pair of original Jubokko Ponies, the resulting offspring resembles an encased foal, the casing being of a red or purple substance that is thick and hard to tear.
After being able to break free, the baby is wobbly at best and seeks food for nurishment which is supplied by living prey caught by the parents. At this stage, their mouths are easily seen with tuff of leaves sprouting loose.
Having enough strength and nurishment to go about and wander, this is the stage in which they begin to find themselves. The leaves about their body have begun to come in fully now; Concealing their mouth from sight.
The Jubokko will reach its full size which is often determined by other factors such as food supply and environment. The leaves and flowers have fully emerged, and the apparent differences are now concealed. When matured to this stage, the flowers determine what region they thrive in and their rarity. Behavior
Usually keep to their own race, having only one need for others; A food source.
If a bond is formed with another species, the behavior of the Jubokko becomes posessive over said companion and almost is deemed as a Master Servant basis.
Other odd companionship is rare but not impossible. Diet
The Jubokko Pony's diet consists of only blood; That being said they can be classified as 'Fluid Feeding' or another word for the term is 'Hematophagy', blood sucker.
This usually consists of sucking the blood out of nearby prey via the very leaves and vines that cover their body. These 'vines' have inner tube like structures and can easily pierce and suck the blood right out of their prey. Mating/Breeding
Breeding is very precise, almost violent in a way as the male tries to dominate the female counterpart in a dance for coitus. Biting, slashing and snarling is often displayed and though blood may be shed; It does not lead to death normally. Jubokko Ponies mate for life; Rarely do they seek others once they find their mate.
When involved with another species, the lack of fight from the other usually makes the experience short lived and merely for reproductive purposes and nothing more. Uncommon Traits
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR COMMON JUBOKKO PONY THESE TRAITS
leaves that change with the season Rare Traits
Wings (whether pegasi, bat pony, or other)
are an extremely rare trait and will hardly ever be seen. This is due to the lack of need for them. Their hunting tactics derive from surprise and capture rather than the actual hunt.
Two Tails, this would split the spinal column and such rare abnormalities are not seen often enough.
Correct Mouth placement:
This is the instance where there usual mounted mouth within their neck has been placed like a normal ponies, which would result in lack of eyes to make space for such jaw structure.
Poisonous Flowers and leaves:
This is reserved for the original Jubokko ponies in which case adapted with said posions and became accustomed to them. Newer generations have a very low chance of having them. Rankings
Older, more experienced Jubokko ponies are ranked as the leaders of their residence, having much more intelligence and wisdom on their belt of the world.
Younger Jubokko Ponies are usually ranked about on their skill such as:
Those who gather the live food supply into the trap
Those who care for the young and elderly and tend to wounds
Those who drain the food from their prey and supply it to the tribe.
Those unfit to be in any category
