I've been tinkering with ideas of Tuchanka fauna. This beast is supposed to be a cousin to the varren but much larger and more intelligent and used as war beasts by the krogan. It has an acute sense of smell, heat sensing pits like some species of earth snakes, and two pairs of eyes. The two pairs of eyes were based on how krogan can look straight forward like a predator species and to the side like a prey species, I took it one step further and dedicated this animal to having a pair set of eyes set for each direction. I didn't draw the legs on the left side of the animal because I'm going to redraw it giving the krogan a gun, and adding a better saddle, stirrups, and reins to the beast. For reference on the teeth I've always imagined krogans as being archosaurs but I've always thought varren looked like synapsids so I based it off of extinct synapsid (primarily gorgonopsia). To be honest, I haven't been able to come up with a name for the damn thing so I've been calling it beast, I don't know, Wargon, Vargon, Varren Prime, or Tuchanka Wolf (coined by alliance soldiers) but so far I like none of these names.

thanks, guess I should name it though didn't mean for it to be a large varren but a relative to varren, like foxes and wolves
