If you watch the video carefully, you'll notice that the three bars on the left remain the sameá while the bars on the right change. my guess is that the left represents the qualities of your creature before editing, and the right represents how your changes are effecting the creature's stats.

You know, the bigger a creature is, the easier it is to keep warm.

---Will we be able to have a creature with no legs but still on land?

Will said that there would definitely be tentacles. So, theoretically, you could make a creature just a head with one long tentacle comming out the back.

OK, so, I thought this creature up when my parents dragged me off to my sister's track meet. This is what happens when I get real bored.



I call it the Kydykys Vdyk Kggyn (Kidicus Vadic Kagagen).

OK, here's the rundown.
  • It's got a trunk in the front like an elephant's, however, instead of tusks, it has a pair of tentacles. The tentacles have small opposeable "thumbs" to enable the creature to pick up small objects. The trunk has two eyes about midway up to act as a sort of periscope when the creature swims.
  • The two main eyes are composed of three pupils each. One Is for day vision, another for night vision, and the last for heat vision. The eyes are both capped by vestigial defensive horns.
  • The head ends in one large hood-like ear. When underwater the ear clamps against the skin to keep water out.
  • The small upperarms on the sides serve no purpose when on land, however, when the creature is underwater they are used like rudders to steer the massive bulk of the Kydykys Vdyk Kggyn.
  • The two front legs are big and stocky, ending in hooves. The irregular shape allows them to be easily folded togeather and tucked under during swimming.
  • The one back leg is similar to a raptor's in shape. However, because of the weight distribution, it can't be used for attacking while on land. Instead, the back leg is used to skewer fish and other aquatic creatures while swimming.
  • It has sort of a potbelly.
  • The three things in the back that look like rabbit ears are actually flukes like a whale has. They supply the main power for swimming.

Here's a skeletal model-table-thing.



This is a swimming pose. Sorry about the crappy quality. I drew this really fast just to put in this post.

Technically, from a biological standpoint, evolution stops when natural selection stops. With the advent of medicine, weapons, et cetera even the weak of the species survive. Therefore, when a creature gains the ability to protect the weaker members of its community the weak members live to reproduce. If we had no medicine, anyone susceptible to a given disease would die. Eventually, no one would be susceptible, and the population as a whole would be immune.

Sympathy is also a major factor in evolution. In biblical times (Mainly the Greeks) if a child was born with a noticeable deformity or mental handicap, they left them on a hillside to die. Guess what? The society as a whole was not bogged down by the frail. However, when the society decided to support these members, they spent resources and effort protecting them. They reached childbearing age and reproduced, passing on their deficiencies. Whereas before, the population was slowly ridding itself of weaknesses, thereby reaching a more refined existence.
