Welcome to the Academics weekly assignment for the week of December 26th, 2021! These weekly assignments will give our Professors the ability to showcase some of their lesson ideas here on the website. Each assignment will be posted for a week, in which everyone will be able to read about the topic and respond to the assignment prompt. This week's assignment is "Magical Creature Studies - Occamers,” created by Jenn (jennrawr).
The assignment is as follows:
Occamers are known to have serpent-like bodies and large wings that can span up to 15 feet. These creatures are extremely rare and are typically found in India. Their diet typically consists of birds, rats, and insects. They are aggressive and overprotective of their eggs. Many people hunt for these eggs due to them being made of pure and soft silver, making them extremely valuable.
Occcamers have a special ability that many other creatures do not have: they are crescomorphic. This means that they are able to forcefully grow or shrink themselves to how they desire. It allows them to more easily protect their eggs from intruders.
You are a Magizoologist who has heard of a group of people that is hunting the valuable and rare Occamer eggs in your area. While you are on your way to try to stop them, you run into the Occamer and anger it. What happens? Are you able to escape and protect the eggs? Be as creative and detailed as possible.
Please make sure to write at least 5 full sentences to get AC for this assignment!
