Planet: Kepler -186F
Megaoculous Capra Aegagrus (Kepler goat)
While it doesn't have any predators, it does have competitors. Because of this, it doesn't have many defense mechanisms, and lives mostly in peace with the other organisms. Because of the planets lower temperature, it has a thick coat and layer of fat in order to keep warm. And because of the planets low luminosity, it has large eyes in order to see with less light. It has horns not so much as a defense, but as a cooling mechanism, although it can use its horns to establish dominance with other members of its pack. Its ears are so large to utilize hearing as well as eyesight in order to track each other and prey. It's tail is also so long to allow it to balance on the uneven rocks and cliffs. It's intelligence is moderate, and about comparable to a 1 year old human child.
It's communicates through a series of stomps and clicks, and has the capability to bleat like an Earth goat. It is a social creature, and sticks together in a pack for familial and convenience reasons. Finally, because the planets rotation is about 130 days, it has a lifespan of 30 years on its own planet.
