Zyglots were massive animals that travelled through space.
Young zyglots were squidgy creatures (COMIC: Polly the Glot) and grew over a period of centuries, returning to mate in the same place every five hundred years. (COMIC: The Time of My Life) Zyglots communicated through colour, spraying clouds of vapour from near their heads. Zyglots were observed to spray purple while feeding. (COMIC: The Moderator) When captured, zyglots would always spray red. (COMIC: Polly the Glot) During courtship, they sprayed many colours in complex shapes. (COMIC: The Time of My Life) A happy zyglot could spread its tendrils, forming many flower-like blossoms. (COMIC: Polly the Glot)
Akkers hunted them for their colour, capturing them in gravity nets. The Zyglot trust worked to stop poor treatment of the species. A young glot dubbed Polly was sold to the Ringway Carnival, becoming the only zyglot in captivity. Ivan Asimoff worked hard trying to raise money to free it. (COMIC: Polly the Glot)
