n., Dominant member of sub-species H.bloggerus, found populating vast tracts of the blog-scape, and noted for an unusually high ratio of young females.
Marked for its continuous whine, through which it broadcasts (in excessive and exhaustive detail) descriptions of the territory it occupies, and its activities within the same. Famous for its strutting walk, and tendency to parade its colours regularly. Prone to prolonged bouts of omphaloskepsis.
The creature tends to be highly social in nature, and on several occasions has been spotted in large gatherings. These groupings are characterized by an initial mass mutual-grooming phase, with much time spent in preening up, and being preened up by. These meetings invariably tend to break up abruptly, as each individual begins to demand greater attention, eventually resulting in minor skirmishes where their (considerably-sharp) claws are brought into play. Following these confrontations, the individuals distance themselves from each other, returning to their yowling - which this time also mentions the fight, how it was all because of the jealousy of petty inferiors, and how they will rise above it all because they're so wonderful, dontchaknow.
It must be noted, however, that the individuals have been seen at similar gatherings soon after previous ones, and are also noticed associating with prior opponents. It is still unclear if this simply demonstrates the social nature of this sub-species, or is a pointer to short-term memory and/or an underlying need for being attended to.
The Maternal-Obsessives, the Unrequited Lover, the Corporate Slave, the World-Weary Youth, the New-Age Partygirl, and the Petty No-Lifers.
