Neurotenic Carnotaurus by Tapwing Neurotenic Carnotaurus by Tapwing

One of the more translucent neurotenics found on the isle along with the nuero quetz.  Instead of blending in though, it's glass-like body serves in utilizing a set of internal bioluminescent organs for a startling full-body flash to daze onlookers. If it's not scavenging, It preys on bite-sized creatures using it's set of detachable jaws which give it a slightly longer ranged and more whip-like bite. Strangely to aid in it's night endeavours,  (though eyeless at first glance) it possesses two headlight-esc spots near where eyes would be, casting a difficult to detect red light on those hiding in the dark. All in all, it's a daytime push-over and a nighttime devil.  

Fan strain inspired by the isle
drawn in procreate

So it'll be one of two surprise creatures I have planed.

I have a suggestion concerning the tisso utahraptor, a quadropedal dromaeosaur(keeping the wrist seen in hypo utah) with sickle claws on the hands as well as the feet and lots of sharp quills forming a fan on the tail and crest on the head.

special thing could be that it has a rasping tongue like a cat but it is more drastic as it can grip to prey and all but lick it to death.

Ehhh Probably not. I told myself I wasn't going to attempt non-apex strains. (Partially because I like Emily's hypo versions of them) 
Although, I was playing around with a bit of an idea. might attempt 1 or 2 non-apexs for fun. Aaaand to prove a little point on something.

I'll keep the idea in mind. ^

In The Isle, if your flash feature was added, would it take up a sheit ton of stamina or also blind the player, like switching on night vision during daytime? Cause trollers could have a fun time with this awesome creatures!

:icontapwing:
Tapwing Featured By Owner May 16, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Well, I want it to be a little spamable, My idea was that it would take up stamina, just not a sheit ton.
The blind effect would only last for a second or two to throw off attackers/prey. that way you can spam it, but at your own risk if your attacker can run you down stam wise. 

In my head neuro's are extremely fragile so they need abilities that make them harder to hit. (Plus I kind of want to see people get creative and try to blind people into running off a cliff ;)
