Blandopoda - I by Sanrou Blandopoda - I by Sanrou

    Blandopoda again, this time with more color.

     

    Krauroacantha lasiochaemus AN.

    Living on the ground level of the dense forests of Eden Valley, K. lasiochaemus is one of the few predatory blandopoda there is. Jumping and running across giant roots, thick and hostile bushes, rocks and lots of decaying matter, they feed on small creatures that lives under leaves, stones, branches, etc. They occasionally jump from time to time.

     

    Viridipoocetes bellcalia AN.

    V. bellcalia is a herbivorous creature that roams through the swamp regions of Eden Valley. V. becallia spend most of the day time hidden under the high “grass” that grows on the swamps, feeding of a dense and thick layer of photosynthetic microorganisms found on rocks. And they jump.

     

    Hyperectucerulea brevisiliqua AN.

    Small blandopoda that lives on the foliage of high trees (~150 m to 210 m). Jumping across trees, H. brevisiliqua is a agile herbivore that feeds on the giant leafs that serves as their living ground. The shining, deep reflective colour on its body is a adaptation to resist de solar rays and radiation. H. brevisiliqua can be found all across the Abzu belt, as they are easily scattered on the entire planet with the help of the twilight storms. They jump a lot.

     


Sorry for murdering the english language (corrections and suggestions are welcome) Sweating a little...

Are you going to do pieces on Lake Sagan and Eden Valley's forests?

Also, this is an absolutely beautiful alien world you've created. I always love to see worlds like this. :)

It's refreshing to find a new face in the speculative biology world. Fascinating creatures.
(This planet must have VERY low gravity...)

Awesome as always! :)
Does krauroacantha's sieve-like crest serve a special purpose?

It is a defense against bigger creatures, but they use the spikes to make territorial marks on trees as well.

That's not boring... I reckon that trees would look pretty similar everywhere anyways
