The Zorat is a domestic riding creature on Amtor. It has long slender legs with round heavily calloused nail-less feet. It is capable of great speed. Above its withers and just forward of its kidneys are soft pads or miniature humps which form a perfect saddle with natural pommel and cantle. It is a herbivore and its only means of defense is its speed. Its head is short and broad, with two large, saucer-like eyes and pendulous ears. Even though it has short teeth it can use them effectively when its temper is aroused.
