In the Life of a SpinkEdit

The Spinks live underground in a colony, like ants. The queens reproduce. The workers shovel the dirt and expand the tunnels in search of underground roots, desert turnips, and tubors. During mating season, males go above ground and hoot their mating calls. Females approach them, and when they mate, the pair goes off to start their own colonies. They do not go above ground during the day, because the Deathgleaners hunt at this time.
