These are the bigger, meaner cousins of chavin. The two species are similar in most aspects, including appearance but chavakas are predominantly white and grey in colour. They are also distinguishable for their greater size (an adult stands at about shoulder height against an average human) and also by their increased bulk as they have evolved to be able to bring down larger prey. They possess the highly reflective eyes of their cousins, but chavakas have ice-blue eyes that seem to freeze anything they look at.
Chavakas live in cooler climates than chavin eg, mountainous regions, tundra etc and they like open spaces better than chavin do.
Chavaka live in small groups consisting of 5 or so adults, but even alone they pose a threat because chavaka are possessed of a vicious streak wider than the Wild Horse River and will attack most living things on sight, regardless of size (if it moves than it is a potential meal!). They do this because food is scarcer where they live, so they will take on whatever comes their way. Like chavin they will also relentlessly hunt their prey until it is dead.
