Sketch and field notes by Natalie Cartwright.
The first thing you will notice about the Wobble Lope is its massive twisting horns. They are strangely oversized and jut out wildly from the its head, which seems to throw the poor creature off balance.
The second thing you will observe is the crazy way the wobble lope runs. In a dizzying effort to harness the aerodynamic properties of its horns, it begins with spinning around three times.
Then the wobble lope quickly finds the closest curb to run along its edge. It sways back and forth and sometimes falls, at which point it spins three times more to gain momentum and runs on.
It is unknown whether its tendency to run along the curb is some type of game the Wobble Lope is playing to amuse itself, or if it is a result of its diet. It is often spotted eating tree berries, which are commonly known make birds dunk and behave strangely.
The Wobble Lope stretches its long necks to reach for the tender fruit of the trees that grow along the sidewalks edge. After each meal the spinning continues with extra enthusiasm. For a cryptid chaser this is the best time to interact with this creature.
