These white furred apes are fairly intelligent, able to make simple tools. Their white fur helps them to blend into their native environment. They are fairly reclusive but also unpleasant, liking to ambush their foes and then grapple them with one arm and beat them to death with a club in the other. They have a simple code of stacked snowballs for communication. They like the taste of humans and similar creatures but are smart enough to avoid groups they canít easily overpower unless desperately hungry.
