Euthyrhizaaegidi rubricollum is a small herbivorous creature that can be found all across the Eden Valley. Living in herds up to 70 individuals, E. rubricollum, like the greater majority of the Blandopoda, moves through jumps: they walk slowly and kinda akward, but natural selection had compensate in a tension-base structural limb that allow jumps up to 40 meters in height and 110 meters in distance. In resume, they are slow and constantly fall (there is even a tubular internal organ responsible for a “counter-weigh” to avoid more falling) but can escape dangerous situations with big and fast jumps.
Since the nocturnal rain in ANU is a constant, water became a safe and easy resource. For that the Blandopoda (and other groups) have a water collector to trap and storage the rain water. It also works as a primary lung to make de gases exchanges with the atmosphere.
E. rubricollum have its rear legs adapted to glide in controled falls, and “hooks” used to stick to the ground in the violent winds of the twilight storms. On the top of its head, retractible ears can been seen along a redish frill-like structure used to long visual comunication between individuals of the same herd.

Sorry for murdering the english language (corrections and suggestions are welcome)
i could never imagine aliens of this magnitude
and while i would enjoy some aliens that are truly alien in my fictional planets, the themes i already have suit me
And I love the cross section of the legs and how they work. I could actually see how these things work
I really like that mix of tentacles and insect-like legs
Rubber legs, basically
