Tangourds are a type of fruit fed to the gorgodon that was mentioned in Flashback. The fruit is described to look like purple cantaloupes. The violet melons are shown to splatter as shown on Grady's shirt. Such effects have managed to spread both in and out of the pasture. To feed the hybrid, gnomes threw pellets at the gorgodon that make it open its mouth before Grady hurled the fruit into its mouth. In the next feeding attempt, the gorgodon batted the fruit back with its tail. Tangourds smell strongly peppery.
