Proterodeinus spinoculmatilis is a medium sized Policapta predator specialized in hunting small blandopodas.
Living in packs up to 20 individuals, Proterodeinus is a really active and agile creature that lives on Eden Valley. It hunts large herds of blandopoda by scaring them, making them jump and then running on the ground while following the falling prey, in a jump and catch game.
Their mandibular head is equipped with a strong set of muscles and a three part jaw specialized in crushing the brandopoda’s hard shell.
The blue “spines” on its back are residual skin and are used for visual communication within the pack.
Sorry for murdering the english language (corrections and suggestions are welcome)
Things need to work to make sense, so i do put a lot of attention on the anatomical mechanisms of my creatures. I'm glad that you see that
Definitely it's like nothing I've ever seen and it stands out from many many other alternate evolution biology creatures I've seen.
My goal is to create a plausible alien world. Glad to know i am in the right path.
What sort of eye structure do these creatures have? It looks vaguely like a chameleon's eye, but it also seems like it would have a pinhole-type eye structure.
The thing that look like a chameleon's eyes is a puffy membrane used for hearing, pretty much external eardrums. They have two pairs of pinhole eyes close to it and a extra pair of infrared "eyes" in their mandibular head (the white semi-circle on the B&W sketch of the jaw).
Say, what's their nervous system like? Do they have a brain in the head, or even a brain at all? Maybe separate ganglions for different functions?
they allow the creatures to give off a "cute" impression, and then they completely change when they prepare to feed
I wonder what it must be like to watch these guys in action.
I'm working on a scene with them. Not good as a video, but at least it shows more about their behavior.
I'm following you precisely because of your unique designs on life, so feel confident to continue. you already achieved that.
I also really like their hunting strategy, it sounds quite funny to look at
These guys are in a scene that i'm working on. Maybe you'll see it...
By my honor i'll get the next!
I like the jaws.
