Yoshi (Yoshipodicasaurus Homoerotica) is a deformed creature native to Yoshi's Island. They are
good with their sticky tongues, egg producing, and SUPER DRAGONS!! naturally in love with another type of gay dinosaurs called the Birdo.
Their natural habitat is on the fittingly named "Yoshi's Island". Yoshi's Island is an esoteric place, where clumsy storks roam while homosexuality, witchcraft and incest runs rampant. It also rains Italian children and toast. Yoshi's Island is also home to various strange forms of fauna and flora. These include pygmy aboriginals, and completely useless tomatoes with no function whatsoever. Yoshi locals have the propensity of being changed to a 2D, book-like state.
Since the start of the recorded history of Yoshi's Island, many inhabitants have emigrated to the Mushroom Kingdom, where any form of life can mount the back of a Yoshi without any thought, and start humping the crap out of the green dinosaur.
