The Orbion - New Creature
« on: April 07, 2006, 11:57:18 am »

The Orbion is a peaceful and timid hexapod omnivore. As well as the large eye on the front of their body they also have three extra optical orbs positioned on the end of three free standing tentacles. These added appendages allow the Orbion an full 360 degree view of their surronding. One eye always looks forward, one eye always looks backwards, one eye always looks up and another eye always looks down.

A hand like grasping appendege is located on the end of their elongated tongue. This is used from stripping the leaves from the Tomo plant, the Orbions' main food substance. The Orbions have no teeth. Instead once the leaves have been brought back to the mouth two glands located as the top of the orofice submerge the leaves in a acidic substance which breaks down the leaves for easy digestion.

I like it. I think It's kind of cool how it sees four ways at once....Hmmm...I really don't have any questions. Anyway, it's good. ;)

Is that a shrub or a tree? 'Cause if it's a tree, that thing would be huge.
There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

It would be kind of funny if it was that big. What would someone think seeing something that large stomping around on some alien planet? Then they learn that it only eats plants?

Leaves for easy digestion? Get it? Leaves- Never mind.

The Orbion is cool, is it sentient?

Yes, I am aware of the irony.
