Having tongue itself isn't alien.

This is just awesome.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

I have no idea.......... Well actually, If I can't post images on spec, I'll just do it here. And I'm doing it on spec because it's slightly a world building project and i saw what happened to Ramjet 4 :o

Having tongue itself isn't alien.
0, It's not that they have have tongues it's because they walk on tongues. I know it's probably not such a unique idea but it seemed great a 10 pm at night ;D

Hey great creature grieve!

Hey forgot to mention this.
There tongues are not really tongues, but internal antenna (they evolved from subterranean hive creatures(the Kinshoius) but I still like to call them tongues :D They're the army knife of "tongues" being able to taste, smell, walk and even hear! My first name for them was the Lingopodes (know your latin) but my first creation was sentient, so I renamed them the Kinshoius (plural). Lingopodes became Kinshoi's "vertebrates", having tongue front legs and true back legs pattern.

Not to rain on your parade but I made a "Bellyfaced Tonguewalker" before Spore even came out.



I also made a "Paraglider Tongue" if we are going to get into tongue themed aliens.

See more of my pre-spore aliens in my gallery.

Yes, after many errm, minutes thinking about how crap my imagination was, I had it! I was thinking for a totally original alien for my new planet and then BINGO! Why not walk on your tongue!...Tonguetastic ;D....


I'm afraid I'm not going to post this creature on these forums, instead I'm going to move this project to http://s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_Evolution/forum/236091/9/ or the spec forums.
If your interested in these guys, I can't post images but I can try and describe it..

DING BA DOO!
over and out...

I think I made one of these months ago.

The Frug?

The walked on their massive tongues, their females were extremely intelligent, their males were idiots, and their legs mostly burst from the slightest hit.

Nice to get Hydro in my thread, even if you're criticizing my creature. And blag, Hydro and all others who want to "this is not unique", don't. BUT.....Explain more about the frugs and toungewalkers biology! I am trying to create a realistic creature (not that yours is not realistic).
And I've decided that there "tongues" do not taste or smell. They have a gastropod based mouth, that is to say that they first cut of a piece of food with a radula (this is the organ with taste buds) or swallowed it whole. They then bath it in highly corrosive saliva in a crop, like a birds, and then finally send it down into a spiral intestine (inspired by sharks and there crop replaces there stomach). Although I should think about there planet first, I decided to concentrate on the Kinshoius. Because they have a subterranean history they have poor, extremely light sensitive and colour blind eyes. Having a taste 50 times better than humans (they can also smell through there true tongues and have inferred vision, through there true tongues) taste is important in their culture so there food taste unbelievably amazing but usually have a bland texture due to swallowing whole. There houses are reminiscent to Earth semi-cave houses. My old version were huge, slanted poles dug into the ground, like skyscrapers going both down and up.

15 minutes of thinking...

their females were extremely intelligent, their males were idiots,

Are you a girl? All your creatures are like that...

Hey Watcher, you really need to stop double posting. It's really confusing and annoying and unnecessary. Just consolidate your posts on one please.
