Auroravenator gulalongus by Sanrou Auroravenator gulalongus by Sanrou

Auroravenator gulalongus is a policapta predator that lives in the banks of lakes and rivers of Eden Valley. They usually spend all the day sleeping in the sun and the night hiding betwen the vegetation, but just a few hours before daw, their hunting begins: Since the Abzu belt get flooded at night thanks to the twilight storms, some small animalls get to hide in upwoard holes carved in the walls of temporary bodies of water. Auroravenator swims with the head inside the water, raiding the “bunkers” where their preys are hiding using it’s long “neck”. A pair of infrared "eyes" are used to detect the prey, while a pair of ossified jaws and a Toothed tongue finish the job.

 

They are pretty much lazier alligators most of the time.



*Damn, that's a lot of "quotation marks"!

I noticed that many of your organisms have this strange eye-shell in same shape. What's the story behind this design?

Oh, It is a puffy membrane used for hearing, like external eardrums. All policapta have them. :D

Funny in its very interesting and yes its appearance sort of amuses me, more the description you gave for it is what makes funny, my comment wasn't intended to annoy rather point out its slightly funny in its habits, that's all.
