Vlad by Monster-Man-08 Vlad by Monster-Man-08
Exotic animal keepers are often disappointed to learn that the vlad's fanciful "hole-punched" wings don't function off its homeworld. They are even less thrilled when they find out the vlad's blood-draining rostrum suffers no similar limits.
Incidentally, these two traits make the vlad very popular amongst gladiator rings.

(How DO those wings function? Well, remember that the circle is the only shape that won't fall thru its own hole...)

I could totally see a psychotic 15th century prince who impales people on giant staves keeping this thing as a pet.

My personal hypothesis about the wings is that the atmosphere is layered and the bottom layer is extremely thick. Almost like water. However, Vlad does not swim through this thicker layer, instead he skims just above it like a cheese grater. Planes fly because the momentum forward created higher pressure beneath the wing than above. In this case, there is already higher pressure below than above and using its tail like a fin, and feet like a basilisk lizard, it moves, essentially flying.  However, should it stop, it would not be able to just hover for the air would pass through the holes and it would descend. 

Now, what does that have to do with the riddle of the circle?... probably that the air pressure below is trying to be pressed even further through the holes creating a cylinder of air-pressure pointing up acting like a circular wedge... maybe...

I know you're probably being facetious about the wings, but I'm still trying to figure out how they would work.

Some sort of increased surface tension?

Really fast flapping in a thicker atmosphere?

Something with non-euclidean geometry?

Maybe it's actually aquatic and everyone has really bad translation microbes?

Love the design! The description about this guy and his wings feels like some kind of logic puzzle.
