Official Bio

Organized and orderly, Tungar has his personal routines well crafted and is skeptical of anything new and just a little resistant to change. A loyal friend, he warms up to newcomers with a little time and enjoys coaching the new sheep players in the art of football including his specialty, the subtleties of head passing. He lives in a cave near the stream.[1]
