The Wyngari are amphibian humanoids. The Wyngari are separated into two races: the lanky orange or purple-skinned Otolla race, and the heavier green-skinned Ankura race. However, they all exhibited many of the same physical traits. Starting life as tadpoles, Wyngari develop into tall beings with extremely flexible cartilaginous skeletons (composed of resilient cartilage). Strong leg muscles and fin-like ears (called haillu) aid them in swimming and expressing aggression, friendship, and fear. They had partially retractable eyestalks with nictitating membranes when underwater.
