A bit late as I had computer issues -

So, sad backstory to this mammal. Years ago they were brought to another planet to serve to do things like pull along cart loads and such to save on actual fuel.

But, the mineral deficiency, the increased gravity, and the light have had a significant impact on their quality of life.

As they age their heavy weight combined with the gravity and mineral deficiency means that the bones in their limbs curve under the strain, to the point where they eventually cannot walk.

On top of that the radiation from the sun damages their eyes: their pupils are always dilated and they eventually go completely blind.

Their skin also develops cancerous spots from the sun.

Eventually they stopped being used by the people there, and were let go where small isolated populations still breed and survive on the local vegetation...though with the same issues and decreased lifespan.
