Occamy and Tina

Choranaptyxis is a characteristic some magical creatures have of being able to grow or shrink in order to fit available space.[1]

Occamies are known to be choranaptyxic,[1] though they won't normally exceed a length of fifteen feet.[2]


Choranaptyxis is the combination of the Greek prefix chor(o)- (χώρος), meaning "space"; and anaptyxis (ανάπτυξη), which means "growth" or "unfolding".
