Woah...well I gotta give It to you...defanatly good...wow...and It has a trunk which I like :) Is that like Zyyo a little...It acts as a mouth and not a Nose?

Like the colours too...also what are those ball things above the nostril things?

The "trunk" is a mouth, and not a nose. And "those ball things" are how it communicates. I will give a full (in depth) description tomorrow.

Full Description:

Physical Description:

   Senses/Communication: The vvukkrauur have 4 eyes, two on each side. The eyes on each side are stacked one above the other, creating a vertical stereoscopic vision. They are mounted on bony eye stalks, which can move independently of each other. This gives them two fields of vision, a left and a right one. There is an area in the middle where both left and right meet together; they have extremely acute depth perception in this area. Their sense of touch is nothing extraordinary, though it is greater than that of a human. The most sensitive areas are (in order from most to least): the four spikes on the rear of the body used for laying eggs, the fingered lips of the mouth, and the palms of the four hands. Their sense of smell is roughly the same as a humans. Their nostrils each have an independent respiratory system. This means that they can each breathe in and out by alternating left and right, allowing a near constant flow of air into the body. Their hearing is, while more sensitive in certain aspects, not as well developed as a humans. The ears, which are located on the top of the body, either side of the bony crown, are well tuned to pick up the semi-muffled sounds the voice bladders make. They are not, however, as good at filtering out other sounds from each other. The voice bladders (located right behind the two nostrils on the "face") are each linked to their respective nostril by the windpipe to the lungs. The way they make sounds is by closing the air flow to their nostril and forcing the exhaled air through the opening inside the bladder, creating sound. When the bladder cannot expand anymore, the opening opens wide and all the air escapes back out of the nostrils. Because of the unique method of respirating, they can talk almost continuously by alternating which side they talk on.

   Locomotion: The vvukkrauur have four limbs, each with four opposable digits. This allows then to climb the twisting trees which inhabit their environment. Each of those digits are also hoofed, which mean they can also climb over the cliffs and crags of the cave walls with relative ease. So good are they at climbing, that they even "run" regularly, without fear of falling. Their mouth-limb, is also used in locomotion, though usually just for balance, since it cannot bear as much weight as the rest of the limbs.

   Reproduction: The vvukkrauur have 3 genders, each which can reproduce with an other, including those of the same gender. The three genders (let's call them BB, BS, and SS) vary in size and markings. The BB tend to be larger, with a darker, greener appearance. The BS are generally the middle sized gender, the picture above is of the BS gender. The SS are usually smaller, with a lighter, more yellowy appearance. The distribution of genders is approximately 25% BB, 50% BS, and 25% SS. Because of their slight size differences, the BB tend to be more aggressive while the SS tend to be more submissive. After reproducing, both parents lay an egg, and they take turns caring for the two eggs.

Environment:

The vvukkrauur are a climbing species that live in an exposed cave environment. These are massive interlocking caves which have since been exposed to the outside and have largely eroded enough for there to be significant space between rocks. These caves can be over 3 km deep, so very little sunlight will reach the bottom, which is quite often filled with water. The vvukkrauur inhabit an area in the upper middle of these caves. There it is still bright, but direct sunlight is almost never seen. This area of the caves is home to various species of climbing trees and plants. The animals in this region of the caves include many small climbing and/or flying animals.
