From the older series "De baldadige beestenbende" (the bold animal gang)
The nimemij (Latin: Nocum meus) (Discovered by K. Surlamontagne, French biologist)
The nimemij is a shouting mammal, who produces a tremendous impressing sound to scare off possible attackers. His attackers however are never impressed. Because of the fact that he is rather slow, has no teeth or claws, he has no real means of defense. His flesh is very chewy, he has no smell at all and is completely tasteless. Therefore he does not serve as a meal for predators. But he is a source of mockery and fun for many species, who seek some entertainment in days of deprivation. Some species, as the goegoe and the sheepledonckey just like to sit on his head. Other known attackers are the Maltese mocking hamster and the hanging partynosemonkey. The nimemij is indirectly responsible for the limitation of the population of the blue bullymouses, as they constantly try to hit him with their winter supplies. As a result they are short on supplies during the winter and therefore 75% of this species does not survive the winter. Without the nimemij the world would be overrun with these little blue scumbags.
