Being an odd creature with webbing, like that of an amphibian, on its feet to aid swimming, a long, slender body, and even longer streaming whiskers. Prefers to eat small animals and the like, but known to venture into the shallows to catch fish when food is scarce. This consumption of aquatic prey appears to be a taste acquired after the age of ice, when most land-based fauna was extinguished, and it was then the coeurl developed its distinctive webbing.
[view·edit·purge]The coeurl is a fictional alien race created by science-fiction writer A. E. van Vogt. Coeurls also appear in other fantastical environments, such as the game Dungeons & Dragons (as "Displacer Beasts"). Coeurls are generally described to be feline with longer forelimbs and tentacles.
