Summon forth your island buffalo. Tough on the outside but tender on the inside.
Belonging to a species introduced by pirates as livestock, this mild-mannered beast took to living on your island one day. Though it appears to have reverted to being feral, it is easily won over with food, in gratitude for which it happily bears you upon its back.
It's one thing to see the buffaloes in a tizzy, but another to think they could have anything to do with the quakes. - P'ebaloh
