Ploons are often found roaming around in groups or in pairs, these gentle giants are about the equivalent of the earthly whale. Only on land, and not whale-like. Okay they're just big and don't hurt anyone, but you get my point. Big, slow moving.
Although they might appear to be animals/creatures. Ploons actually fall under the plant family and live off sunlight, getting their energy from photosynthesis via big green photosynthetic 'pads' on their back.
