i don't see the point in the stupid sapient vs sentient thing, everyone knows what you mean, so who cares about apart from pedantic people who feel superior when they correct people,

anyway back on topic, its quite likley that the battlefish and that thing is are "related"but really i dont see how it would happen considering they were both probably created without using evo points and as such are the first and last of their evolution chains

Here's a better picture.  Seems to resemble the battlefish a lot.  The texturing really throws you off, though.  It's a good job.

It's got the same back fins and the same mouth part. Other than that, I don't see similarities.

I see no resemblance. A set of fins was used in the creature editor twice. So what?

They resemble each other just about half as much as these two do:


And that ^ is just one generation of change.  Two generations could easily change battlenewt to battlefish... of course, we don't know how many DNA points are really used at each generation....

If they weren't in the same evolution tree, they were probably designed by the same person, or to test the same features.

No. They have nothing in common except for two parts. The eyes, hands, legs, texture, color, size, spinal configuration, and pretty much everything except for the fins and (and this is the one that seems to be catching people) the mouth, are different in the two models. Even the Willosaurus has way more similarity between extreme stages than that.
Meanwhile, the willosaurus has spinal configuration, tail, eye type, eye configuration, mouth type and placement, accessories, coloring, texture, and markings in common.

Since mouth parts are basically used to define a head, it becomes a primary eye-catcher. But that doesn't mean those two creatures have anything in common but their mugs.

^ or maybe Battlenewt is just the ape cousin of the Battlefish.  Beautiful part of this game is that if you want them to be related they are.  You are making up the story as you go along.  If someone sees a resemblance and someone else doesn't, they are both right.  Its all open to interpretation.
Check out my (Thurlin's) creatures, building, and vehicles.  You won't be disappointed.
