Wig-wigs were small, orange, fluffy creatures with terrible ferocity, found in the Deepwoods. They hunted in packs and devoured every scrap of their prey, leaving no evidence of their kill behind them. Wig-wigs did not need to drink water, as they obtained their moisture from their food. They were known to gather below elevated shryke roosts, awaiting all manner of creatures either to fall from the gangways above, or be cast out by the shrykes. Wig-wigs at first sight often created a false image of cute and friendly creatures, as noted by Twig; that was, until they opened their mouths. They were feared by all who knew of their temperament and ferocity.
Role in the Twig trilogy
Wig-wigs devoured Twig's Anonymous Banderbear friend during the events of Beyond the Deepwoods. Later on, Twig saw Wig-wigs devour Thunderbolt Vulpoon in the Wig-Wig Arena of the Great Shryke Slave Market.
