The jauxckle is a small mammal that typically calls colder forests its home, but will often wander into new areas in its post-life undead state. Although jauxckles exclusively feed on berries and other vegetation during their life, they also include meat in their diet during their undeath. A chemical process occurs upon their death that continues to animate their muscular system, moving the jauxckle using muscle memory but without an associated consciousness; although dead jauxckles look alive, they are merely shadows of their former life and cannot think, sense their environment, or feel pain. A side effect of this chemical process produces a thick, chromatic goo that oozes from their pores and keeps the body supple and moisturized.
