I think the humpapotamus is related to the dromedary camel.  ;D
More so than you might have thought!  ;) (though the Humpapotamus is long gone extinct.... ><)

So where does Snuffle-upagus fit in?

Or Big Bird for that matter?

According to Wikipedia ...

Quote
While Big Bird is generally deemed a canary, when he visited the Neighborhood of Make-Believe in episode 1483 of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (which aired on Wednesday June 3, 1981), Big Bird shared with X the Owl that he is in fact a Golden Condor. On the same program, when King Friday XIII asked him if he was related to the cassowary, Big Bird replied, "I'm more of a condor."

Am I the only one who finds this greatly humorous? I always thought of him as a giant canary- Hydro has changed my life.

I always thought of him as a monster, trying to kill the people.  I was scared by him as a child.  Isn't a gigantic yellow talkng bird scary to you?

Sub-species and evolutionary trees
« Reply #156 on: July 12, 2007, 10:17:06 am »
I haven't see the "new ideas" in a while so I decided to add my own small ideas in a new thread.

I would think adding an evolutionary tree would be relly fun and simple. Being able to see what you creature evolved from after playing a while seems like a good idea. Maybe even animating the evolution would be cool.

I know the sub-species idea has already been put forward and I would like to second, third, or whatever that particular idea. It would be interesting to see how other sub-species develope from previous evolutions of your creature, and see if they survive.

ya man that sounds really cool espiaclly the part on tracking sub species becuase you can easily remeber the creatures you made but seeing if you hunt ur ancestors or they equal you in strength or are they dead it wouldbe kinda cool and to go deeper in would be cool to be like Sims 2 family tree where you can click on the picture of the sim that is in it (dead alive whatev) and see its info but in Spore it wont be like time married first kiss time learned to potty but like first hunt first mate time became extinct those kind of stuff

Now, animating evolution is a good idea. They should do that like it was done in "Before The Dinosoars".
It was very cool, and knowing Will, he'll probably have some cool stuff like that.

I remember watching something like that on the BBC, had the animal with the year it exisited in then time passing by extremely quickly and howing you how the creature changed over the hundreds n millions of years! having that in the game would be cool!  :)

YaY  ;D, but if he can;t get the animation in, it'd still be kwl to see a nice evolutionary tree showing how previous creatures looked, sounded like...basically all the test are emotes on the tree
