Ferron's are also able to wield a small amount of Magic, strictly elemental. there are different categories, Fur length and the coloration's are based on Element. Habitat

Diet
Ferron are strictly carnivorous, and will pray on other small animals. Ferron are picky, and like eating the same foods and will only eat carrion if it was killed within two days of their finding it. General level of aggression and sociability
Ferron Males are more solitary than females, and will only live in groups of two of the same gender, based on the Dominance/Submissiveness of the two involved. Females will live in groups of five or six. Pairs will form, and live in two pairs per group. Single pairs will also live together. Ferron mate for life, and should a partner die, they will take some time before picking a new one, of the same age and element. General behaviour
Ferron are fun loving, curious creatures, who like exploring, and playing. They hunt only when needed and have a hording tendency when it come to things they find pretty, or the things that shine. some also have a aloof sort of air, but that is only in litters where they were the only offspring.
Ferron can be feral or tame, but to be tamed they have to be raised as such. after 3 years feral they will not become fully tamed. Sexes, genders, and Reproduction
Ferron consist of male and female members, and four genders: Dominant Males, Submissive Males, Dominant Females, and Submissive females. and whereas the females are strictly heterosexual, Dominant males, may take Submissive males as a substitute in a female role. This is a rare occurrence though.
Females generally do the hunting, while males protect, both will raise and teach offspring different skills, in the guise of play.
There is no real difference Physically between the male and female, beside the under scales, which are brighter on the female. Males are also slightly bigger.
Females generally take 7 month gestation periods, and will have litters of 3-5, depending on stress during gestation the number may decrease to 2 or even one single offspring. if Elements of the parents are different, the offspring will take either one or the other, leaving the parent of the same element to teach their magic to their offspring.
