|“Your mamada could eat a flank of charred tahala rump if she wanted!”|

The Tahala (plural Tahalum) is a type of non-sentient animal found mainly in the Woes of Shreve, though some can be found in the Plains of Jabh-j. They are used as a form of transportation and food in the Woes of Shreve and Yorsha Doon. They are chosen for this purpose because they can survive the harsh climate and need little food. According to Pembrick's Creaturepedia, the Tahalum in the Plains of Jabh-j seemed to be playing an animal version of Zibzy. This may indicate that they are smarter than most people think. They taste like the meat of the Sweeft when cooked.
