Fantastic fauna by Rodrigo-Vega Fantastic fauna by Rodrigo-Vega
Now, this are just feasible creatures.

8) Catobleparion: An hervibore mammal with its horns bent downwards in order to anchor its head to the ground. It would then use its long tongue to twist the tough grass and roots found on its habitat from which it feeds on.

9) Vionathus: A reptile with an ecological roll in between those of a crocodile and a pelican. It has two pairs of mandibles used wide open under the water,facing the current of the water and snapping on fishes whenever one enters in contact with either of them.

10) Triolophosaurus: Able to distribute the air between its three crests the triolophosaurus can produce beautiful and complex low frecuence songs to communicate with one another.

11) Nodontoiction: The tongue of the nodontoiction creates a cavity where its young can hide for protection while still allowing the mother or father to hunt for food or defend from possible threats.

12) Queloniontherium: A desert predator, it will use its hands to dig in the dunes in search of hidden sand-worms, snakes, arthropods or moles and then use its long flexible neck and eye membranes to sink its head in the sand in order to catch them.

13) Lupothermion: A forest canid-like creature that uses its snout to seek out, scare and grab frogs and lizards from the bushes.

14) Hidrobasilius: This marine reptile uses its legs and prehensible tail to grab itself to the rocks when in need of rest or shelter and to swim after small prey.

15) Optiopod: A snail of some sort that uses its poisonous spines to harpoon fishes and then drag them to its mouth with the tentacles aroud it. The eyes and spikes on its shell have evolved to protect it from the nodontoictions that often try to cath them.

16) Artropophidion: Uses its lateral mandibles to catch frogs in a way not unlike that of the dragonfly nymph. Durning mating season the males will use the horns growing at each side of their heads to measure and scare off competitors.

the Queloniontherium is a remarkable idea but what would the strange whiskers under its chin be for?

all of these are really enjoyable! They have that kind of FF6 random encounter creature feel.

Jesus, if you drew that you should insure your fingers or something. The detail is intimidatingly brilliant!
