    singing Death

    hie all, the concept behind this sketch is that this bird has a special noise, when she sings a deadly frequency emitts and kill all the living organism with in the parameter, and bad thing is she cant fly high coz of her short wings..

    I decided to go with the sings-its-own-death route instead of a predator or an omen. Apologies for the continuous theme of sexual selection in my entries, I can't help it!

    C.O.W. - #094: Singing Death

    UPDATED WIP incase I don't get time to finish it

    C.O.W. - #094: Singing Death

    The species lives in rainforest habitats and the male sings and displays to call as many females as possible using the complex system of nasal passages and air sacs. He does this for days or up to a week depending on his stamina and due to the severe energy expenditure, dies soon after mating with as many females as he can.

    heres what i have got so far.

    C.O.W. - #094: Singing Death

    the Gorgump creature is a rather odd incarnation. It lives between 3 and 5 years, and before it dies, it is filled with an immense sadness. it then begins to sing, and sings so beautifully that any animal that hears, immediately comes to its side to listen. After the creature finishes its song it promptly dies. To add even more woe to this sad tale, the creature dies by a massive explosion which usually kills any animals that have come to listen to its song.


    Edit:still looking for a photo hosting site.

    Pheasanteater, I hate to tell you this but youre gonna have to start over or at least do a serious overhaul of your design. Look in the CoW rules. It cant resemble a human at all and your creature looks very much like a mutant person with multiple mouths. It wont make it to poll.

    The Pascal Toad
    This huge deciduous dwelling toad uses ultra sound to detect its prey. It can emite tones as high as 100,000,000 Db. When it finds its prey it sends out the apropriate tone to stun the prey and then devoure it. Some more rouge pascal toads use this ability to its limit and obliterate anything they see as a threat by sending out just enough Decibels to make the it burst in a bloody explosion. Surviving a encounter with this creature is rare. But the few survivors who have say that it was amasing. Why is almost dieing amasing you ask? Well they say that each individual has a diffrent tone that will make them explode (Bursting Tone) and this tone is said to be the most relaxing and peacful sound known to earth. Some mistake the frogs tone for the song of an angel.

    quick question:
    Thursday is the 9th, not the 10th. Do you want this on thursday the 9th, or friday the 10th?


    Ideas, which are being sketched, which will then hopefully be developed and eventually finished:

    The Steampunk Toad- the pipe organ fish slapped me in the face and let out the inner steampunk kid I have locked inside of me, who in turn ran screaming down the halls of my mind flinging gears and cogs and grease. From this tantrum of all things steampunk, came the idea for a toad or frog, probably toad, which has been altered by some mad scientist to play music when it croaks. It would be accompanied by the glass armonica. However, due to the process of grafting the brass bits onto the froggie bits, which requires large amounts of Egyptian embalming fluid, formaldehyde, and luck, the air that is pushed through the pipes/flutes/horns is actually toxic. A great many parties were ruined by the untimely demise of the guests sitting closest to the toads. By some whim of an angry and possibly tone-deaf deity, the toads are still able to breed, and have infested the sewers of London.

    The Cicada-like bug - This is more the generic type entry; a cicada/locust-esque insect, which by some odd quirk moves through space to infest host planets and wreaks havoc on plant life, but sounds so pretty while doing so. Entire planets have succumbed to deforestation and eventually the collapse of global ecology, while snapping its fingers to the catchy tune of this intergalactic pest.

    Personally, I think I prefer the Toad, though if the Pipe-Organ Fish is done, I'll do the Cicada-thingie out of respect for the idea. I don't want to step on any toes -- the idea of a pipe-organ/music-box animal just struck a chord.

    I'm going the whole Siren route, but taking a different twist. There are so many similarities between this and a http://www.tyranx.com/concepts/cow75c.jpg which were purely unintentional...but some of it is quite glaring, so I understand if you wont accept it Foz Boz.

    the spider known as sining death or the harp spider uses its silk webbing and its rear legs to emulate the sounds of crickets and other bugs in order to lure them into a close enough distance to pounce them.
