Here’s a bit more on the Lotus Tribe:
Lotus are extremely calm & peaceful Funkeys and have an intense connection to the planet – the Great Mother Terrapin. Lotus are friends to all wildlife and have the ability to communicate with many different types of animals; some say they can even talk to trees.With such a natural bond with the environment, it seems odd that the Lotus reside in the heart of Funkeys Town. Could this be the reason for the broken heart? Then again, maybe it is their strong bond with environment that holds all of Funkeys Town together.Either way, the Lotus stay cool in all situations, even Master Lox and his evil henchmen don’t get the Lotus too worried; their expressions never change.
