The Craay ax Tii
« on: March 03, 2007, 05:31:16 pm »
This is my race the Craay ax Tii, or just Craay for short, which I have been working on for a really long time.



They have a hard exoskeleton that covers their body except the belly which is softer, this makes them slow but helped develop their brain since they needed to outsmart their prey when they couldn't outrun it.
Every 2 years they shed their shell to allow their body's to continue to grow, this leaves them vulnerable for a few days when their new shell hardens. This time is by most spent fasting and contemplating their life, when the shell is hard they celebrate with their friends and family and receive presents. This is how Craays count their age. The pre-civilization Craay lived for 40 shells(80 years), but the modern Craay live to be over 100 shells(200 years).
The bigger set of arms are used for every task that requires strength and the smaller pair are used when they eat and for finer tasks.

They have poor eyesight which is balanced by their sensitive ears.

They can live and breath both on land and underwater but spend most of their lives on land.

Their average height is 1 - 1,5m, but some grow to two meters.

Craays are omnivorous and eat mostly water living things.

At 10 shells age Craays become mature and can mate. When they do the male impregnates the female who after a few days lay about 10 eggs in water. And after three months the eggs hatch and the young Craays spend about a year living in the water but occasionally venturing onto land.

Comments, Questions?

*Bursts in through a wall*

A contest of artistic skill, eh? Against a couple of common pretzel-vending slobs?

This will be all too easy....
