I'VE GOT IT!!! Please, from now on, before posting, read these edits:
Kaivik will now be a Class-M Yellow star in early life.
Also, The hydrothermal vents: GONE. I;m going to have plate tectonics after all, but slower than Earth's. (just as a reference)
Finally, that wierd thing with the energy consumption of Kaivik? NIXED. I really need to stop watching so many wierd and obscure sci-fi anime.

LOL at monolith. Wait, what do you mean, monolith? Are you planning on colonising, or is the monolith just a marker?

Duh. Of course he has. He uploaded a Spore CC pic.

EDIT: Oh, I almost forgot, he may not have Spore, but just the CC.

Truth be told, that was made in the trial. I really hope I get the full game for Christmas. My cousin let me play his, and it was awesome!!! But he was mad when I gave his creature spit parts... oh well...

I'm glad that you're listening to scientific reason. I would truly hate to inadvertently start a flame war, and maybe we can become good friends.

I would think that the supercontinent was formed millions of years ago by shifting tectonic plates. Earth used to have one supercontinent called Pangaea, but it split into the modern continents. No continent is permanent unless the planet is geologically inactive, and that might mean a much weaker magnetic field, which would mean increased solar radiation, which would mean an extremely low chance of life developing.

Speaking of which, how about you try and make these Pentekonterus very unusual? Like, make them really different from familiar terrestrial life in a few ways. Maybe they can see in x-rays, or eat rocks or something strange like that.

Yes, it's true. Shamefully, I do just have the CC.

Be careful when attempting to colonize this planet...

Yup, finally updated again!

Ok, so here's some of the other creatures on Kuuruk!

Ukuril:

They're the Pentekonterus' main prey, and are often seen wandering the swamps in herds. The Irriuth also eat them.

Irriuth:

They compete with the Pentekonterus for food sources such as the Ukuril, and hunt from the tops of trees using the helium sacs in their tails. The pores allow them to intake or expel helium and control their altitude.

Rawksus:

They basically serve the role of scavenger all over the planet. They will descend on Irriuth kills and basically wreak havoc on anything that stands between them and their next free meal.

??? (most commonly known as Rorthoks, but other names are used.)

These are the terrors of Kuuruk's seas, and although more lightly built than the Pentekonterus, they are one of the reasons why said terrestrial carnivores avoid the ocean at all costs.

Skurivin

These freshwater/marsh hunters do not use brute strength or swooping dives to kill their prey. Instead, they use their strange appearance as a weapon. Any animal that sees them will go into a panic, which is then aided by chemicals that the Skurivin shoot from their spitters. The prey will effectively be scared to death, as the chemical stops the heart soon after it is used.

I think that this is a good start and a step towards really fleshing out your creature. Keep it up and try to be realistic.

What he said.

Hey, you know, you're supposed to edit the creature fact sheet. As in, delete the stuff that's there and fill it in with creature info? That's why it's called a creature fact sheet. Consult where you got it from for values.
