Carturian Strut



These creatures are omnivores that feed primarily on the carturia grape plant to which the Carturian Strut's name derives. They obtain a toxin from these grapes and are capable of channeling a potent dye to their feathered shoulder blades.
Carturian Struts prance around with a wide galloping strut. The bright colorful feathers are used in both mating displays and to ward off larger predators, warning them that their blood and flesh are poisonous.

I love how you can fit multiple limbs onto your creatures and make it look as if they would actually work in real life. I guess that comes from intensive studying of animal and insect anatomy. You must spend a lot of time studying nature in all its wonderful, bizarre, and amazing forms.
