I'm not really sure what to call this creature.
I've been playing around with scientific names. 'Kampos' is the Greek root part of Hippocampus which means 'sea monster'. And there's a whole bunch of Latin and Greek bird names. The group is 'Aves' so maybe something like Avekampos. I'll work on it. Taking suggestions.
Music to go with this: Sailor

[EDIT] I went back and fixed some things that were bothering me about this.

Woaaaahhhh, Hippocampus! This is beautiful!! I love the colors you used for this and this creature is so cool! Its like a seahorse bird dragon thing. Ah I love this and the colors. Amazing. I think Aveakampos kinda sounds a bit cool, with the a twist in it... But I gotta say, Awesome.

Thanks, friend!
:Bummies:
I'm glad I wound up going with these colors.
Maybe a simpler name would work better, I was thinking. Like people in fables would look up and cry "Look! It's the Seagull-eater!"
