Generally, benign Moombas posses red fur covered bodies. Standing at about a meter in height, they get around via running or walking on all fours. Although, when stationary, Moombas can stand on their hind legs with their forepaws. Their paws, both fore and rear, are oversized in comparison to their bodies, with each possessing sharp claws that, coupled with teeth, can be used for defense. Communication wise, they are unable to talk to humans, although some have been taught a word or two, and expressive body language, however, manages to convey their meaning to others. They present no difficulty in communicating with other Moombas and Shumi, and can recognize, and maybe track, someone's DNA by licking their blood. As such, they are prone to mistake an individual for someone else due to the individuals sharing DNA.
