Genarobratsus
Crane Arm

These bipedal herbivores travel along the coast of the continents looking for tough plants to eat. When they found one, they use their long arms to tear off pieces of plant matter and bring it to their immobile heads. Food is then crushed by the jaws and swallowed by the smaller, heavily-muscled inner mouth. They are decent runners but their design was mainly a response to predators hunting under the surface of the sand. The spikes on their legs can damage the jaws of a predator who bites in the wrong direction.

Genarobratsus don't have many other defenses against predators. They may try to make themselves look large by waving their arms in the air and chirping loudly. Although their sharp claws cannot cut through the shell of a predator, they can still damage eye stocks beyond recovery. Corpses of unortunate individuals who were overpowered by predator will be found with only the arms and legs eaten. This is because the tissue in the limbs have the most energy and are not connected to organs that can contain potential toxins absorbed from some plants.
