The Zunian is a creature of the Icelands, one of the few grazers capable of rooting shoots and tubers out of the snow-covered soil. A Zunian is about 2/3 the size of an adult Crdlu, with long shaggy fur and four forward curving horns. Their tough stumpy teeth are constantly grinding on tough roots.
Zunian are sometimes kept as herd animals in the Icelands, mostly for their milk, horn, droppings (which are used as fuel) and as beasts of burden. Zunian are generally docile, but they are stubborn and determined, able to withstand a howling ice-storm with impunity. Herding them is always something of a challenge, since they will go their own way. Although the outer fur of a Zunian is constantly dirty, knotted, and matted, they have a layer of pure white underfur of the finest texture. This fur can be woven into highly prized robes and cloaks, but it can only be gathered from a dead Zunian, so it is very expensive.
Zunians cannot be ridden, but they can be trained to pull carts and carry baggage, albeit at a rate slower than Krakath and Crdlu.
