All slugapovs are descended from the motherland of USSR in previous years more commonly known as Estonia and Ukraine. Much of the year in these countries is cold and damp which makes it an ideal region to crawl around in and thrive.
Externally, a slugapov looks very symmetical, but upon a second look one can see that a slugapov has a slight protrusion by its solar plex. This little "pooch" or "gut" is vital to the overall health and well being of a slugapov. It is a notable characteristic that scientists can use to guage the overall health of the creature.
