Stonebacks

Stonebacks

The Stonebacks are small, turtle-like creatures that live in caves on the planetoid called Algol.  They are able to curl up into their shells and disguise themselves as rocks, which makes them indistinguishable from the rest of the planetoid's surface.  Once prey comes within striking distance of them, they will attack.  The Stonebacks are intelligent, but still quite primitive, and very aggressive.  They have a primitive language and religion.  They know how to make glass out of sand, and have mastered the creation of glass houses and meeting halls of elaborate design.  However, the Stonebacks also throw rocks, and they have a nasty and violent disposition.
