Ostu: The ostu is a large herd animal from Viiman (0321 Massilia). Attempts are being made to extend the planetary range of this animal because of its excellent food possibilities. It also has a tough, but workable, hide that can be used for leather on lower tech worlds that lack indigenous animals that are usable in such a manner.

So far, results of the transplant experiments have been poor, but the Imperial scientists are continuing to evaluate the results to try to improve them, as a good deal of evidence exists that the First Imperium had a similar, successful program. -mas K -mas TD 11
