Fur

The zamiler fur is double coat and water repellent. However, living in swamp conditions, algae often gets caught and grows in the fur, giving them a slightly greenish and purple color. Grooming the algae off of each other is a communal activity close zamlier's will do together, or other small creatures have been known to also participate.
