Ortolans are heavy, squat bipeds with long, trunklike noses and beady black eyes. They have floppy ears and rather small mouths, which are, nevertheless, well adapted for eating. Each hand ends in four chubby fingers and a thumb that is not quite opposable. A thick, baggy hide, covered with soft fuzz resembling velvet, hangs off their rotund bodies.
Originally nocturnal, the Ortolans retain many vestiges of their primitive lifestyles. Their large pupils are quite efficient in dim light, while bright light hurts their eyes. The Ortolans' floppy ears are extremely sensitive to sound waves, but their long snouts also have densely packed tympanic organs that channel low wavelength sounds through flexible eustachian tubes into their ears. Of course, the Ortolans' noses are useful for more than just hearing. These long trunks also contain olfactory passages that allow Ortolans to smell food up to two kilometers away.
