Haseri's Guide to the Creatures of Emerald
« on: June 17, 2008, 06:32:41 am »
Greetings. This will be in the form of a guide book, in that it'll have a picture of the creature, and a short description. I probably won't get the full creator until Thusday, so you'll have to put up with the trial version for now. :p (oh god did I just use a smiley?) Anyway, I'm kinda annoyed Sporepedia is down... :( (and again)

Key:
Green Text means it's in Sporepedia
Black Text means it's not in Sporepedia.

The Common Hasoid

Scientific Name: Hazshezan Trog
Order: Primates
Family: Hazsh-like
Distribution: The Shadowglade Rainforest, a dark mountain rainforest.
Habitat: Rainforest, paticularly dark, dence ones.
Diet: Carnivores, mostly small birds.
Lifespan: 45-50 years
Conservation Status: Threatened
Info: Although they have wings, they are vestigal. They can glide for a while, but not as much as other creatures. Plus they are deaf.

The Occulens Hasoid

Scientific Name: Hazshezan Trog Occulens
Order: Primates
Family: Hazsh-like
Distribution: Most tropical rainforests, paticularly The Riverrun Forest.
Habitat: Tropical Rainforests.
Diet: Carnivores, again small birds and mammals.
Lifespan: 40-45 years
Conservation Status: Vulnerable
Info: When you live in an enviroment filled with Drop Birds (Birds that jumps out of trees break the bone of their prey) and falling branches, it pays to have eyes everywhere. This is the case with this Hasoid.

Carnivorous Pouell

Scientific Name: Pouellen Carnivora
Order: Even-toed
Family: Long-necks
Distibution: The Southern Grasslands
Habitat: Savannah
Diet: Scavenger, so anything it finds dead.
Lifespan: 20-30 years
Conservation Status: Near Threatened
Info: Like a cross between a hyena and a giraffe, the Pouell stalks the savannah in search for food.

I like the last one and the detailed information. Conservation status is an interesting addition.

OK, does anyone else have the problem of 'My Creations' having the number of creatures you've actually made, in my case 13, but when you click on it, it only displays some of them, like, in my case, 7? Luckily it still saves the PNG files...
I get some of the detailed information from watching it in the test area.

Emilin

Scienitic Name: Scorpio Amphibia Unoccular
Order: Scorpion-like Amphibians
Family: One-Eyed
Distribution: The swamps around the Shadowglade forest
Habitat: Swamps, some found on coasts. Rarely found in rivers by forests
Diet: Smaller amphibians and fish.
Lifespan: 10-15 years
Conservation Status: Least Concern
Info: The Emilin has only one eye. Nature dictates that it should not have depth perception. However, it is still a very successful hunter, able to move trhough water at speed and quietness.

Rache

Scienitic Name: Bineuro Triocculens
Order: Two-Brained
Family: Sucker-cupped
Distribution: Mostly found on the Northern Steppes
Habitat: Temperate grassland, with plenty of grazing animals
Diet: Medium Grazing Animals
Lifespan: 15-20 years
Conservation Status: Near Threatened
Info: No-one is quite sure how Two-Brained animals came into existance. Some say that they are two syboites, now joined together. Others call it devine intervention. Whatever the cause, it has two semi-brains. When still, the bottom brain works the next movements. However, when moving, the top brain is in control, as the stalk is next to useless.

Spotted Lame Arm

Scienitic Name: Basillikus Paraliz
Order: Basilisk
Family: Two-toed
Distribution: The Windless March
Habitat: Rocky deserts
Diet: Large Flightless birds
Lifespan:10-15 yeras
Conservation Status: Endangered
Info: Like most Basilisks, this one does not have eyes in the usual sense. Instead, it has motion detectors all around it's body, using scent and movement to find it's prey. This means it is pretty dangerous,and has never been domesticated in zoos.

Got Full Spore CC yesterday. All these can be found on Sporepedia.

Squindan

Scienitic Name: Talpidae Gigantus
Order: Screw-form
Family: Mole
Distribution: Most places underground
Habitat: Underground
Diet: Roots
Lifespan: 5-10 years
Conservation Status: Least Concern
Info: A natrual digger, the protrusion at the front of the body helps with digging, as well as being used as a weapon

Rhinodont

Scienitic Name: Cervidae Cornus
Order: of the Stick Elephant-like
Family: Deer
Distribution: Any large forest
Habitat: Large forests
Diet: Trees. Lots of them.
Lifespan: 50-75 years
Conservation Status: Critically Endangered
Info: It is possible for them to digest entire trees. In fact, the only thing they don't use is the seeds. Stand well away from it's excrement. If sentient, it's theorized that, to them, 'Yo mama's so..." jokes would apply to them. (Like "Yo mama's so loud, her Stealth level is in the negatives"). Consider it lucky Beavis and Butthead never met this creature.

Piggyback

Scienitic Name: Bineuro Ratite Diform
Order: Two-brained
Family: Bird-like
Distribution: The Shadowglade swamps
Habitat: Swamps and marshes
Diet: Omnivorous
Lifespan: 20-25 years
Conservation Status: Near Threatened
Info: The species on the back is neither benign or malign, coming somewhere between symbiote and parasite. God was apparently very annoyed when he made this creature, as it is quoted in holy texts: "Why won't the mouth stay on. Gah, I'm going to have to use an insect mouth...".

Buzzaiba

Scienitic Name: Basillikus Ornithorhynchus
Order: Basilisk
Family: Webbed
Distribution: The Shadowglade swamps
Habitat: Swamps and marshes
Diet: Herbivore
Lifespan: 15-20 years
Conservation Status: Least Concern
Info: Quite the sociable creature, this is a break from most of the aggresive, meat eating basilisks. It clearly has eyes. Scientists had no idea it was related to other basilisks, aside from the six legs, until genetic tests were done.

Ok, some new stuff. These weren't orginally for Sporepedia. These are all also part of a 'mouth' series, where I place a mouth on the random creature body, and try and construct something that fits in with the mouth and it's name. Sometimes, I went a little overboard.

That's the first row done, on I lovingly call 'generic carnivore' row. Tomorrow, the mandible row.

OK, I'm going to give up on the Mouth Series. Showing them here at least. I don't think I could be bothered to do 16 more of them. They're all here anyway. Plus some more.
