Swinetic possesses a keen sense of smell, which it uses to forage in the earth for root vegetables and to sense incoming threats. The creature sleeps by partially burying itself and protruding its spines to deter would-be disturbances. Swinetic is a nervous creature and if approached will often accidentally discharge electricity. If one is unfortunate enough to come into contact with their spines, they possess a magnetism which will not allow you to pull away from the electrical impulses. This power married with skittishness makes them unpredictable and dangerous, despite their cute exterior.
