Google obviously lacks the finer points of the art of the Gongo
Mummy, why am I short and cuboid shaped? Is it a result of millions of years of evolution which have taught us that this is the best shape for survival.

Some creatures can create an effect much like fire. The Bombardier Beetle (I think that's spelled right) can combine two chemicals in it's abdomen/rear end that can leave black marks on a victim and seriously scare and/or damage them depending on the size. Though it's not necassarily fire these could be used in the game to a) Defend yourself from larger predators by scaring them or making yourself less appealing or b) Use it offensivly to startle creatures and then attack them when they are confused. I believe a dinosaur did something to the effect of the Bombardier Beetles' fire effect but on a larger scale.

The problem with that is, from what I've seen of the creature editor, there is not known way to specialize certain parts to do other than what they look like they can do. Meaning I don't know how to tell the game that your bunny spits acid.

heh I should HOPE the dinosoar did something the beetle did on a much larger scale ;D

in the movie reign of fire dragons used fire to create ash which was the food suply they used.  Fire was created by releasing two seperate chemicals in ducts inside the mouth (like a flame and an airosol (sp badly) can).

i've also observed the species homo redneckus use methane produced from the bowels and an outside flame source as a tool that defines social standings.  Those who created more impressive flames were given greater status amongst others of the tribe :o

AKA people lighting farts ::)

I hope that they do allow for ways to specialize parts of your creature, otherwise the Diablo like part would be like playing an RPG with only an attack function and no magic abilities. It'd be very repetitive just saying 'attack', 'attack', 'attack' etc. It would be a heart breaker to find out I can't make Ninja Critters that blend into their surroundings and lunge at unsuspecting one eyed short rabbits.

I think it more like EVO: Search for Eden. Bite, slash, bounce on top of, use this limb, use that limb, etc etc.

It may just be me but although EVO was innovative it did get repetitive and this is partly due to the battle system, eventually all I had to do was walk forward and bite to destroy enemies. In the start of the mammel age I evolved rather quickly by fighting the remaining tritops in one of the caves. I was still cat form but could destroy all of them by standing on a ledge just above them that allowed me to bite them but they couldn't bite me. This bored me quickly. Hopefully Spore won't turn out the same way.

God, I'm already bored in the Amphibian era....

There's a bit more difference here, tho. Because EVO was bite, bounce, ram. And the evolution was limited severely.

To be honest, tho, Diable was just "CLICKITY KILL CLICKITY KILL CLICKITY KILL," so if it's Diablo-esque, look forward to that.

This is off-topic but Diablo started off much like EVO, everything was predetermined for the first little bit but eventually you could become a great sorceror and learn to summon creatures or increase strength etc. That's what I hope Spore is like, I hope it let's you modify your creature from being 'just another mammel' or something to a beast worthy of existence and capable of not just defending itself but of using other conquered races to do it's dirty work. Unfortunatly I will assume until told otherwise by Maxis that this 'enslaving' of races will be rather limited or non-existent but we can only hope.

They do need to add domesticating non sentient creatures

and enslaving Sentient creatures though.

Here's an off the wall question. When something evolves in the real world, it technically leave behind it's throwbacks. Meaning they're should be living versions of you primitive self out there. Would this be implemented in the game?
