So, I am going to try to enter for iLantiis's contest about designing pets. I added the few things that came to mind as inspiration - she's a feline and bug mixture, with a elongated body. I gave her a fluffy tail, she has wings (these can be ANY type, by the way), and for some reason, I put a gem on the forehead.

The lining on the back is just hardened cartilage. As babies, they don't have wings nor is this present. It forms once they reach a certain age and then the wings break out like it was a cocoon. The cartilage then heals and hardens.

With wings, they can fly. Their bones are lighter than most animals, and so they have the ability of flight. It's another reason why their body is more elongated, it helps them keep a balance once in the air (I have no idea if this scientifically sound, I'm just making it up...).

As I hope to win (and know that I can or cannot), if I don't place I'll likely keep these guys for my Clouders. But I really think something like this is a good pet for an Ambrivan (just my opinion :D).
