The faint scent of death and decay fills the air, and misty fog makes seeing anything difficult, especially at night.

cacao grove chimpanzee cocao beans A grove of cocoa trees.
canyon coyote Much deeper than a valley, with much steeper walls of solid rock and minerals surrounding it, the desert canyon is beautiful, and dangerous.

fog
forest deer oarl wood Dappled sunlight gleams bright and airily across the lush cushions of moss and grass blanketing the forest floor, which is greeted by lacy ferns and an occasional flower or shrub.

jungle parakeet aeon wood Ancient trees guard the land here with their great twisted roots, creating a surreal landscape of dappled twilight far below the lofty branches which reach to dizzying heights above. The monstrous giants can even be seen wrapped around each other at times, as if in an endless battle to catch the sun at their heights. The darkness of the jungle is thick, with shadows everywhere. Even the highest peak of the sun lends only a little sunlight to hit the ground, making the leaves seem like they’re glowing wherever the rays peek through. Sounds of all kinds erupt from unknown places within the wild maze of jungle, creating an eerie atmosphere for those not familiar with this terrain.

A foggy mist sits above the surface of the water, making finding a way around the area that much more difficult. Thick black mud sits at the bottom of the water, and jagged, jet black stone shoots out of the surface in clustered pillars.
meadow antelope Thick fields of many types of flowers and herbs squeeze tightly next to one another, lending any onlooker a beautiful sight. The fields go on a fair distance, hiding all kinds of life under various leaves and petals. Like a sea, the wind blows the flowers along like waves, making loose petals fly in gentle swirls in the wind.

The only hint of sterling beauty within this area is the light blue crystal that climbs up the trees, seeming to protect them from too much moisture. The small hints of light that make it down to the water-filled floor make the crystal shields glint and sparkle. It gives a misplaced sense of security to those who linger too long in the danger-infested waters of this habitat.

Ivy wildly creeps up the rough walls of minerals and soil that enclose the valley, which might be used to climb up the side, if not too steep.
