These small but sturdy budding herbivores prefer dawn and dusk hours to quietly snoop around the northern snowy forest floor for soft tree bark, shrubbery, buried nuts, and whatever else is laying around. Barina never go alone, let alone break out of a group, with someone always keeping their sensitive ears on the alert for threats. Their long whiskers help them safely navigate the sometimes harsh, wiry and thorny underbrush during their more active dark hours. Scraping around is easy with their hardened, nail-encased toes that are speculated as a predecessor to something hoof-like. At around 3 ft tall at the shoulder, Barina make hardy companions, and it would be wise to clip their dense coat should your travels take you substantially south.
