Hi, remember the "Creatures" project?, well, i'm going to start uploading the work i've been making for this comic, in other words, the animals and monster species that are going to appear in the story without spoiling anything, with that said, let me talk about this one.
The Thornyltrios is a large monster that lives in the Desert, it's a carnivore and a scavenger, eating everything that crosses it's path, sometimes it has turfs wars with the other great predator "Crocantus", the tail and the horns of this creature are extremely dangerous, the hammer shaped tail can hit so hard it can break rocks and make the ground shake, actually, hitting it's tail to the ground is one way of intimidation. The males are slightly bigger than the females, being these the ones that take care of the nest and their young, attacking everything near it. Although their shells are grey, the Thornyltrios is born with brown scales, but the back is exposed to the suffocating heat of the desert, turning grey in the process and getting harder. However, despite it's territoriality it doesn't really care about tiny animals crossing by, in fact, these tiny ones hide below the Thornyltrios to avoid predators.
Actually that was one of the things i intended of doing, i wanted a big predator that scares off everything near him with his badass horns, and it may be big, but i assure you it's faster than it looks xd
Ah, I see! That's kinda cute in a way. I imagine that another problem this guy has is sand getting stuck in his hard skin. I imagine he has a lot of small cracks and gaps in the armour where sand gets stuck and itches...
