 ====== Aeleloi ====== ====== Aeleloi ======
 The aeleloi is an amphibian kept as a pet by many [[sesheyan_species|sesheyan]] households. Although easily mistaken for a snake, a closer look reveals that these 6-foot long animals have hundreds of tiny legs beneath them. The tip of an aeleoli’s body ends in an organ similar to those found in the electric eel, fish, and rays on Earth. The creature can defend itself if threatened by either running an indirect charge over the whole surface of its body, or by its tail into direct contact with an enemy. Exactly why the sesheyans find the aeleoli pleasing is difficult for the average human to understand. Indeed, if asked directly why they keep these animals as pets, they answer in a vague manner with responses from “We always have and we always will,” to “I don’t know, we just do.” When examined scientifically,​ however, a possible answer becomes clear. The aeleoli is surrounded by a very active electrical field at all times. This field, while too week to penetrate the insulation of a human’s skin, stimulates the sesheyan brain in much the way caffeine and other stimulants affect a human. The aeleoli feeds on fish and other sea life that it shocks to death. In the wild, aeleoli hunt in packs like wolves. Once domesticated,​ they use these natural instincts in the service of their masters. A typical sesheyan fisherman sends as many as a dozen of these creatures into the water where he believes fish to be hiding, The aeleoli form a loose ring around groups of fish and fill the water with electricity. The aeleloi is an amphibian kept as a pet by many [[sesheyan_species|sesheyan]] households.
