Canets


There used to live a unique kind of animal known as Canets , can be considered as ancestor of modern day canines(family canidae) which consist of 36 types of animals. The Canets were very agile and strong animals with razor sharp claws and strong enough teeth to easily crush bones. They used to live and hunt as pack and had very strong sense of belongingness to the family as well as to their own species. Canets had olfactory receptors in trillions and thus got sniffing power so high that they could detect and track animals as far as 5 km away. 

They could also communicate with each other by sending waves of different frequency to even far away areas. They used to communicate with Canets packs living far away exchanging information regarding availability of food and water in their area. Though areas were strictly divided and every pack used to defend their area vigorously but in case of need they used to invite other packs to live for limited period of time. In adversity they used to get united and face everything as one. Due to these abilities and Unity they were in a way ruling most of the earth. Even Lions, The Undisputed King, used to avoid them unless it becomes very necessary cause they knew that Canets always got re-enforcement even from packs of nearby as well as far off areas.

Things don't always remain same and as expected it started changing with the advent of new two legged species, which migrated from Africa and started expanding their area in different part of the world. These two legged species were known as Homus and used to live predominantly on trees. 

Homus were not as agile and not as strong as Canets were and had non existent claws and blunt teeth, also they were incapable to send long distance waves of communication and had very normal sniffing power.But they do had bigger brains and were good at learning and improvising new things. Using their brainpower they had started developing weapons out of which most useful one was spear and had also learned to use and control fire. With the power of Fire and Spear and other improvisations they started moving from trees to land specially higher grounds.

There on land Canets were waiting for Homus for "Peaceful coexistence" or a "Prolonged war"? You may give your predictions regarding the story-line.
