Like Flanimals, the book features around 30 species of Flanimal, illustrated by Rob Steen, which make up their own imaginary ecosystem.
Some notable Flanimals in this book include the Squat, the Psquirm and the Mung Ungler.
List of Flanimals
- Skwunt – a clam-like Flanimal with its eyes inside its mouth.
- Plappavom – a Flanimal resembling scrambled eggs that dissolves over time.
- Fud Dumpton – a heavily built dopey looking Flanimal.
- Grommomulunt – a caterpillar-like creature with no organs other than a pair of eyes. It is the larval stage of the Munt Fly; the metamorphosis consists of shedding its skin and eyes, causing its insides to leak into the ground.
- Horosi Horasi – the fastest and smallest Flanimal on the planet.
- Edgor – the slowest moving Flanimal on the planet that has been overtaken by some dead flanimals.
- Dweezle Muzzbug – a grasshopper-like Flanimal that sheds its legs.
- Verminal Psquirm and Hordery Psquirm – two supposedly similar Flanimals that are seen only peeping round corners; their body shapes remain unknown.
- Squat – an aggressive spider-like Flanimal.
- Mung Ungler – a bovine-like Flanimal with many udders.
- Pong Flibber – a balloon-like Flanimal that escapes by pumping out its entire gaseous insides.
- Weezy Tong Nambler – an irritating Flanimal whose only defences are to flap and lick.
- Prug Fuggell – a testroprod nad snail.
- Gronglet – a trunked Flanimal that cannot find enough food so dies within its first day of its life.
- Spleg – related to the Gronglet but can survive until the day after its birth.
- Swog Monglet – a primitive lazy pond dweller that pulled itself out of the swamps millions of years ago.
- Gumbnumbly Knunk Knunk – not explicitly described in the book, but features in a story at the end; apparently it can read thoughts.
- Plodonklopus – an ancient strain of Blunging that was stronger and faster, but nonetheless became extinct.
- Splorn - a microscopic organism that later gave rise to all the other Flanimals.
Many other Flanimals are shown on an evolutionary tree but not described:
