Nemitrix Alien Crimsphinx by TheWalrusclown Nemitrix Alien Crimsphinx by TheWalrusclown
The Ben 10 Fan-reboot has begun!!!!

Well be starting with the nemitrix preditors for the Omnitrix aliens that will be in the Reboot, witch consist of the OS aliens, Spidermonkey, and Kicken Hawk, now for the winner of my invitation only desine-a-nemitrix alien contest, Snare-oh's preditor, Crimsphinx , Desingned be sonic-and-Crash ( sonic-vs-crash.deviantart.com/ ), redrawl by Zigwolf ( zigwolf.deviantart.com/ ), and digitaly colored by me.

Name: Crimsphinx

Species: Sandryte

Home World: Anur Khufos

Prey: Thep Khufan (Snare-oh's species)

Powers/abilities: Crimsphinx possesses special pits located in the frills on either side of its head that allow it to smell prey in a fashion similar to Earth's pit vipers and rattlesnakes. These pits allow them to detect the small amount of Corrodium radiation that Thep Khufan give off.

Sandrytes have Corrodium-infused fangs and claws that they use to attack and rip apart prey.

Crimsphinx is capable of firing off a jet of flame from the end of its tail, preventing Thep Khufan from regenerating any damage they may sustain.

Crimsphinx can fly.

Sandryte have incredible eyesight, which allows them to track prey from the air through blistering sandstorms. They also have a protective second set of eyelids that they can use to prevent sand from getting in their eyes.

Weaknesses: Due to a lack of water on their home world, Crimsphinx have a natural fear of water and will do just about anything to avoid large quantities of it.

Sandrytes have a strong sense of smell and can be overwhelmed by putrid odors.

Etymology: Crimsphinx's name is a portmanteau of the words "crimson", alluding to its red coloring, and "sphinx", which refers to both a mythological creature that is usually depicted as having the haunches of a lion, the wings of an eagle, and the head of a beautiful women and the great monument located in Egypt.

Trivia: The species name comes from sand, of which both sphinxes and mummies are often associated with.

Crimsphinx also shares similarities with manticores, another mythological creature that is often depicted as either having the head and body of a lion, the wings of a dragon, and the tail of a scorpion or the haunches of a lion, the wings of a dragon, the head of a human, and the tail of a scorpion.

Strangely, only female Sandrytes have wings while the males don't. Hunting parties consisting of both genders often have the females scouting and attacking from the air while the males corner and attack from the ground, making escape all but impossible.

Because the vast majority of a Thep Khufan's body is made entirely up of bandage-like extensions, Sandrytes commonly decapitate their prey and only eat the head. This is largely due to the fact that all the vital organs and nutritional values are located in the hard to crack skull or face plate; Sandryte cubs however, have been commonly see playing with the remaining bandages in a similar fashion to kittens playing with balls of yarn.

The corrodium isn't what makes the claws and teeth work, they are just 1 of many building blocks in the various compunds that make his powers work

so what you're saying is the corrodium isn't meant to hurt thep khufans , just augment Crimsphinx 's powers right?
