While considered to be a pest upon the rest of the galaxy, Tribbles are a creature apart from other animals. With such a high reproductive rate, Tribbles have turned into docile critters that find nothing better to do than just sit down and eat, all day if necessary. Since they are purely hedonistic in nature, they have never achieved a higher tech level than just eating and sleeping.
While predominantly pink or a light brown, Tribbles come in many different colors of coats. Some species have even been reported to have been striped.
Tribbles are known for their extraordinarily quick reproductive rate, being born pregnant. Also, they have a peculiar ability to coo and cause many humanoids to relax. However, due to Klingon pheromones, Tribbles can react violently.
