Animorphs Races: Garatron by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs Races: Garatron by Monster-Man-08
Although very similar to Andalites, Garatrons seem to be a case of convergent evolution, where two unrelated species evolve into similar forms (such as marsupial moles and "true" moles). Garatrons are far faster than Andalites, or just about anything, really. So fast they can't be seen, and they can even run on water. They even 'talk' fast, although they use <thought speech> like a good number of aliens in the series.

The only Garatron to appear in the series was a Yeerk Inspector, checking to see why Visser Three was taking so long to conquer Earth. The answer killed him...

They might be cousins, like different kinds of felines.

For some reason he reminds me of Blurr in Transformers. I wonder how could a yeerk infest him if he has no ear?

It doesn't even have tail blade, nor any natural weapon. How come the Garatron can knock out 4 Animorphs in cheetah morphs?

With a punch or whip that was powered up by speed. That's why the faster bullet, the more deadly it is.

Man, I remember this guy. I loved when Visser Three was gloating like that. "What's the matter, Inspector?"

That was awsome. Never underestimate snake bite.

:D I loved that book. Oh, and I also loved how Visser Three was just standing there watching as the Garatron died from the poison. I swear, if Visser had a mouth he would have been grinning.
I wish the Garatrons could have appeared again, but they never did. :(

Garatrons kick ass. I was hoping we'd see more of them, like the Leerans, after their initial appearance. Ah well. Great work here :D

Yeah, makes sense. I'm going through the whole series again right now, at book 16. The Garatron dude was pretty far ahead so I guess I'll see then.

I like the Garatron better than the Andalites. They're probably less assholish.

That was such an amusingly ironic end. Fast metabolism = fast death from poison. And Visser Three just stands there and calmly comments about how this was why he was having such problems.
