Riddle Contest Day 1: Sarepia Forest!

Hey Jammers! Welcome to Day One of Animal Jam Stream's Journey Book Riddle Contest. 

Throughout this contest, we'll be hiking all over Jamaa's lands and solving riddles to figure out the identities of some Journey Book animals. Whoever guesses most riddles correctly will win a custom Masterpiece!

We're starting off our journey in the beloved and mysterious Sarepia Forest, the leafy home of the magic fire pit, the Flag Shop, and many, many clans.

(If you'd like to skip the story and get straight to the riddle, scroll down to the bottom of this post until you see the big bold letters.)

You enter the natural woodland clearing through the Township path. As you look around and take in the atmosphere, you think to yourself how apart this place is from the lively noise of Jamaa Township. But this forest is full of life, too, in its own quiet way...

You are about to sit down before the warm fire pit when you notice a sudden movement about the flames. You look a little closer, keeping a safe distance from the embers, of course. The fire is still for a moment, and you begin to wonder if your eyes are just playing tricks on you--

And a six-legged salamander springs up from the flames!

"Hey there, adventurer! I'm a magic salamander! What brings you to Sarepia Forest?" asks the salamander, hovering above the fire. 

You can't believe your eyes! A six-legged flying salamander who's resistant to fire! For a moment, all you can do is silently gawk.

"Hey buddy, you okay?" the red-spotted salamander asks, turning quizzically.

You manage to break out of your stupor enough to awkwardly cough out a few words. "Uh... yeah. I'm good. It's just.... six legs!"

The salamander shrugged midair. "I guess it's just not every day that you see a magic salamander. Hey, I have a riddle I've been working on! Wanna try to solve it?"

"Sure! Riddles are fun," you reply, your eyes lighting up with wonder.

The salamander smiles happily. "Here goes!" he says, and tells you the riddle:

"Out of all the creatures in Sarepia Forest, who has gills but does not swim?"

HINT: Look in your Journey Book!

*Comment your AJ username, your answer to the riddle, and what you would like me to draw in a Masterpiece for you if you win!*

Thanks for entering Day One! Tomorrow, we will visit the snowy peaks of Mt. Shiveer! :D
