Ichthyomorpha II by Sanrou Ichthyomorpha II by Sanrou
More Ichthyomorpha, this time with articulated jaws.

Thildus cephaloblanda AN. : A soft and squishy herbivore who lives in dense "underwater forests";

Rhynchosensata dorsolineatus AN. : A common predator that lives and hunts on small packs.
They have a extremely fast spear-like jaw that pierce and slice its prays;
 
Sanguinorepta vulgaris AN. : A small and parasitic creature that lives on bigger
animals trhough feeding on their body fluids. A group can reach the hundreds,
killing the host and spreading to new animals via Necrostomatae;


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

Magnifying Glass I would be ABSOLUTELY IMPRESSED if I were to see any species of arthropod fill in the niche for any species of fish in existence. :( (Sad) But also sad at the same time if any fish went extinct during the process.

That's the thing about natural selection. It's sad and beautiful at the same time :) (Smile)

Shrug Yeah, I guess I can't argue with that. Sometimes the remaining survivors of any extinction event have to just make the best of it before their numbers dwindle (whether they adapt to the earth's changing ecosystem or not. That would also apply to the seven discovered exoplanets. That is of course, after our planet's expert scientists, mechanics, and biologists send a sturdy robot with long distance communication to study the planets themselves without intending to disturb or offend whatever life form they discover, as well as damaging their natural habitats).

I concur. It's a pity that we will never see the full exploration of exoplanets though. It's fun to speculate, nonetheless. :)

;) (Wink) Maybe. But I'd rather not lose all faith in the space agencies of any country on our planet when it comes to finding out what exists on those exoplanets.

Oh, don't get me wrong, i believe we will reach for the stars someday, and corporations like Space X with people like Elon Musk keep the dream alive. But as optimistic as i am, i'm don't think WE will reach the stars in our lifetime. The best scenario i can picture is seeing the detection of life nearby (Mars, Europa and so on);

The outer space is for our future. Nod

:shrappy: Whatever works. If neither of us will ever witness the actual results in our lifetime, then hopefully we'll take a glance at it from heaven. You know how people tell us that those who are already dead watch over their friends, family, and loved ones? Well, that would be one way of at least finding out for ourselves after death (but only if neither of us live to see if people have finally invented a way to get to exoplanets or otherwise send their camera devices to it).

Very interesting! Is it just me or do they look like anomalocaridids? Also, what did their jaws evolve from?

indeed they do!
From a series of muscles and specialized tendon strings. I'm gonna post a chart in the future explaining everything (i think so!)

I truly love this Exobiology project of yours!  Including the art style that accompanies it.  :clap:

So what's the biology of these creatures like?  I understand that they use those long filaments to detect chemicals in the water and that the rippling flap of skin on the side acts as a sort of lateral line like in fish, but what's the rest of their anatomy like?

Thank you! :D (Big Grin)
I have tons of texts about this project and every creature on it, but I have to summarize and put everything in an organized way (not to mention that I am not yet very confident about my english to do so).
All creatures presented so far are Capillosomae (still have to better define the taxa), organisms supported by hair-like filaments which can assume different forms and properties: from a resistant thick skin, a fiber-rope like backbone to a soft and cartilaginous tissue.
Practically rubber/plastic creatures in a low gravity environment.
