Another New Creature: unda /undaaer
« on: March 12, 2006, 03:51:58 am »
I'm not sure which name I prefer, unda or undaaer
OK, so, these would live on the same planet as Acertelum (see link in my sig)

They have 2 different methods of getting around, as they can both swim and fly.
When swimming, the wings fold down to-wards the body into a fin shape, and help him swim allot faster. The spike on the front of the wings, whilst not very usefull when flying, acts as a weapon when swimming, by ramming the spike into anything in front of it.
They have a large spike on their head which can be rammed up-wards by strong neck muscles, used to attack bigger creatures above it.
They have lungs and gills, so they can spend as long in either medium as they want.
They can also land on the ground, but have no method of walking. During winter, when the ground is icy, they can slide using their wings, fins and tail.
Their -surprisingly strong- mandibles are used to help hold onto food whilst the creature is chewing, meaning they can eat and swim/fly at the same time.
Their mating dance is very elegant, with the couple wrapping their tails together and putting their wings next to each other in mid-flight. The couple then fall, spinning down into the water. This is repeated as often as the couple want.

Nice work, the whole thing just fits together. very steam-like, it looks like it flows through water and air easily, the only thing I don't like is the mouth it looks... kinda messed up but its probably by the horns. nice job ;).
Bow down fool. HAHAHA!

They are ment to be mandibles, I wasn't sure what type of mouth to give it, so I hid it with mandibles XD

Ish. I never saw the show. I want'd to. I heard some about it, and I heard about the two diving. I wasn't sure exactly so I made it match the creature.
