Pirate island speices by Morgoth883 Pirate island speices by Morgoth883
I must first of all apologise about the file size. I tried to fix it by getting rid of the backround texture, but Ide already saved it and it was too late.

Anyway ^^ this here is my entry into *aqua-dragons competicion where we are pirated that are charting a previously unknowen island and its inhabbitants :)
This here is my speices that Ive found ^^ They like shiney things and are quite tolerant of strangers in thier territory, unless its a notorious preditor of course.
I shall now provide a typed version of what I wrote, just incase folk cant read my wriing ^^;

"I liked these wee critters the moment I first layed eyes on them.
I had sat on a rock to scribble on the map Ide been drawin' when suddenly one comes up behind me and steals on of my Trinkets! A true pirate indeed!
So I folllows him back into the trees until I eventually come across a whole load of the blighters!
Their a queer bunch. I had to watch them for some time before it was I realised that had three genders! have you ever seen such a thing!? So I decides to watch and study them for the time we was here. Their a tree climbing type. Thier tough claws and strong legs make them excelent three climbers. Each of the three sexes plays its own distinct role in thier tight community. The males are lean and quick, spending most of thier time building, maintaining and decorating the treetop nests which they construct out of twigs and leaves, and decorate with any shiney objects they can find.
The females are stockier than the males and when they not too heavily pregant they spend thier time hunting for rodents, and birds too if they can catch them.
The middle sex are different from the other two. They are much larger in stature and have arms that are disproportionatly long for thier bodies. The middle sex are the matriarchs of the community, and thier status is represented by thier girth. they spend most of their time picking fruit from the ends of branches with thier long arms.
Mating is a terrifying experiance for Male and Female, who must both be mounted by the massive middle gender. The beast will then fertelise the egg within its body, and pass it back to the female parent for gestation.
I never did get my trinket back."

Cute :P

I still think that the way evolution works would have eliminated the third gender though ;)

nah, like I said before; thier methode requires that they form close community bonds, improving the communities net chance of survival. ;) Its the same reason that woman are engineered to enjoy sex; so that they form bonds with males. From a purly reproductive point of view, only the male -needs- to enjoy the experiance.
