Aquid are a flocking creature local to Wyvern, a low grav planet in Beta Cluster. They are a prized delicacy and are commonly collected in groups by Chinese and Japanese spacers. The organ that produces propellant is used as a soup additive and the propellant actuator flaps contain meat that 'can cure aging effects' (known superstition, unproven.)
Earth-Based animal rights group PETA (founded 1980) protests these harvests, as Aquid are known to possess great intelligence, and despite their aggressive appearance, a peaceful nature. As of 2323, there are fewer than 1,000,000 Aquid on Wyvern.
