MH:World - Donkestra Creature Detail


'The Donkestra uses its skin flaps to glide across the land, whilst its spines and reinforced skull help defend it from predators and hunt down prey. It's hooked tail allows it to both hang upside down as it rests, and to quickly adjust its course mid-flight'

It looks like an inbreeding of all monsters combined. Odd

ANOTHER CARNIVORE? I really wish more herbivore concepts and creatures could come around we need more meany faced vegetarians.

Nonetheless, this 'little' culungo-pachycephalosaurus is a very cool idea! I really like this fella. :) good job ;)

I read "Donkestra" and immediately thought of an orchestra of donkeys.

It looks so adorable!! ...And prickly. And headbutty.
What an amazing and lovely design! :) I love the mixture of things worked into the design. Reminds me of my budgies, except maybe a little more ferocious. Haha

Oh, I love this game! Awesome concept!
hmm... I find the design conficting. It looks both heavy(mainly the head) and light a the same time. 

Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful creature. I'm in love with it.

Major kudos for the silhouette size comparison.  It's a simple thing that really helps visualize a creature, yet so few monster manuals do it.

Great creature design, the tail hook from which they hang is a great touch. I love the little icon as well.
