Junioper Is the key female in the story. She’s very pretty (for a Pachyrhinosaurus) and has a strong character.
As a youngster, she shares adventures with Patchi with courage and resilience, separated from both her family and the herd. She develops a real connection with Patchi, even though she can’t always show it.
She always obeys her mother, but she really wishes she could ignore herd protocol and choose her own mate (Patchi), instead of having to be part of the herd leader’s harem. She shares Patch’s happiness when he has proved himself as leader of the herd.
