A New Dawn
The Jeshoh are a humanoid species resembling a Terran grizzly bear. They are omnivorous, and eat a wide variety of foods on their home world. They are generally peaceful, preferring to resolve disputes through discussion, rather than violence. Jeshoh live in extended family units. Individuals will often travel great distances to find a mate. Jeshoh are fecund year-round, similar to humans, and it takes 20-25 years for children to progress from birth to complete (adult) independence. The typical mated pair will have 2.3 children.
Prior to contact with the Confederation, the Jeshoh had reached a technological level similar to that found on Earth around the last quarter of the 20th century.
