I thought the Eohippus Gruatherium would be somewhat smaller than a human, while its about human sized in the pic (which would be about the size of an average horse), unless its not as far back in the Gruatherium's evolution as I thought it is.

As far as the woolly guy and the predator, if that Arborsaurus can stand comfortably on two of its legs, I'm sure it can use one of its powerful looking front limbs as a weapon against the woolly gruatherium as those feet could be used as clubs to stun or knock down the animal and keep it distracted for a split second (often enough time for any predator) to lunge in. Using this method would keep the sensitive parts away from the claws as the gruatherium is likely to target the foot as the predator tries to club it.

Yeah the smaller one is actually pretty big. It has been a grassier and low shrub eater for quite some time. But due to its trunk moth eatting it was not too efficient. Thus better and more efficient grassers pushed him out untothe woolly version. The woollies eat from the trees and have to stand on their back legs and stretch up to get the leaves. This leaves them venerable to the sawtooth. He stand still like a crocodile, minics a tree and moves slowly in the wind. Then when one get too close it bites it in the back and then eats it. However with the huge claws on the woolly the sawtooth would not even try to get it from the front in fear that its legs would get injured. And a sawtooth that can't stand is a starving sawtooth.

The Quilled Slurp in an insectivore who eat social insect colonies. Like the monarch and other poisonous creature he displays black and orange to show he is poisonous. Like the the coral snake its tongue has stripes of black yellow and red. Wen in danger it flicks out its tongue waving it as a warning. This quills have deadly neurotoxins similar to a cobra's. He gets this from eating the insect which harvest poisonous plants and eat them. No other creature can eat these insects except the slurp. Not many predators bother them in fear of accidentally getting poked by the very deadly spikes.

He digs into the colony using is short back limbs and walks along on his long front ones. He has poor vision and no external ears. But by placing his snout on the mount he can feel the vibrations of the insects and know where is the best place to dig. His mouth has created a long tube like an anteater and cannot eat anything else.

it has a head frill like a triceratops but it works like the ear of a bat. On its snout is also has a place in which sound can bounce back. It has no eye so it has to "see" its prey in the pitch black caves with sound. It has 2 huge nostrils on its face to also sniff down prey in the dark. It uses the 3 legs to climb around on the stalactites and stalagmites. And used the 2 other arms that hand down from the middle to snatch up the prey into its fangs. In which it pumps digestive fluids into it and sucks it out like a spider. It also has 2 claw-like mandibles to hold the creature in place. These have razor sharp spikes in which it pokes deep within the prey while it sucks it dry. The feet on the 3 legs can hold on to the sides of the walls alike a gecko so it can even hit upsidedown on the cave roof.

I've been tentatively calling it a flaedul.
It flagellates. You know, with its flagella.
It has two of them.

The Gallopelope is a 3 legged herbivore much like Earth's gazelles. It has 3 eye on its head. One on each side and one on top that faces forward. It has horns comming out of the back of its jaw like a triceratops and even have a beak and teeth like one. Its legs are strong and made for running like an ostrich. But unlike an ostrich it has 3 toes. These creature grazers mostly on grasses and out run predators at extreme speeds.

And have a kickass name to boot!
Use those talents you have. You will make it. You will give joy to the world. Take this tip from nature: The woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except those who sang best.

You are correct! You get a cookie plus a bonus cookie! :D

That was a cool show back in the day i thought. I wonder if there will be weird planets like that in Spore.

I vaguely remember that.

"Arr, treasure!"
"Wait, don't kill me!"
"Too bad!"
"****, that water's different! OH GOD THE PAIN"
"He didn't kill me! Hooray!"
I would say something more interesting, but I am trying to eat a grapefruit the size of a baby's head*.

not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
