A skeleton for a yellyfish  :P That's a new one. I'll just draw the exterior first, OK?

Thar' you go smjjames. The main body is a bit flatter than your sketch, but I hope it fits you. If there's anything very wrong, just say and I'll see if I can fix it.

technically they aren't even closely related to what would be a jellyfish. thier ancestor would resemble a mollusc with arthropod style legs, while that common ancestor did have a shell (it wasn't made of calcium like earth molluscs use), after they started inhabiting shallow estuaries and swamps that shell shrank in favor of leathery skin with the stinging cells and the shell became structural support.

as for that pic, it could work for the swamplands species, although the mouth is a little out of poportion, but its ok.

I kinda wanted to use 6 or 8 legs for the one I made, but didn't for some reason, probably because it would clutter wierdly. I could just claim the other 3 or 4 are behind those that you do see.

I should hope the primary god of Morrowind should know about the game.  ;)  Perhaps I should rephrase my statement:  the bull netch are bigger than the others.

I think I said earlier it can wrap the trunk around one of its limbs when its walking or just let it rest on the ground when not doing anything. the trunk works in the same way as an elephants trunk, it has the same sort of musculature.
