A stephie is a mammal with short hair that crawls around on all fours most of the time, but has the ability to walk upright for brief moments until it runs into a tree or other debris. They were first discovered in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. An average stephie's mammary glands are suitable to feed a litter of 12 easily. They are scavengers and depend on other wildlife around the area. The do have a distinct smell similar to raw sewage, mostly because stephies consume the waste of other animals in their surrounding environment.
