Concept: South American Black Stone Ant
Located throughout the forest floors of South America, the Black Stone Ant catapults small stones or pebbles to make its shelter. These shelters usually take several years to possibly the life span of the insect to finish. The large abdomen area and rear legs have been due to ages of evolution and have become an anchor for the catapulting procedure. The front head is more a wedge shape to slip under the rocks and thinner but longer legs are used as springs. The black stone ant feeds off the algae and moss that grows on the damp wet forest floor.

Yamayamma is a very rare animal. It lives only on a one desert in Africa. Creature hunts for insects using its tail, which was transformed into a tool similar to catapult. Local inhabitants say, that two times in a year Yamayamma has got its mating. At night it calls females by throaty sounds: "yama-yama-yama-yama".

Concept: the bulgarian sperm slinger
in ancient bulgarian times, these formerly handsome dragonlike creatures were renouned for their raunchiness. all day long they would spend the hours in their barbaric copulation that is too hideous and time consuming to describe. their sodom and gomorrahism was so downright ghastly(especially when the dragons stumbled upon a kama sutra manuel 5th edition:yoga style.), that it greatly angered the gods. they decided to punish the males with de-qualities that made copulation impossible. the gods first gave them bad breath, bad breath that makes a stroll through the deepest sewer, seem like a stroll through a freshly mown park. however the gods thought that was too weak. they then shrunk their wings to laughable proportions(the dragon with the biggest wings gets the hottest she-dragons). they then, out of sheer humor and cruelty, gave them unsightly pot bellies, pot bellies that would make homer simpson feel sexy as hell. the gods then (just to see how unsightly they can make a creature) shrunk their strong legs, to toothpick like extensions that were virtually useless. the gods then situated their reproductive organs onto their tails, just because. the she-dragons were not turned on at all, and the dequalified males lost all confidence. however their hornieness still resided in them. every once in a while a female, out of sheer hornieness and pity, lets a male mate with her.....distantly. the male tries the best he can, however because of his "situation", he has to..you know....
and thats why they call them the bulgarian sperm slinger
(im sorry if i pissed off any bulgarians.i have nothing against that country, just picked it randomly.)

The amphibious Cetapheld is found mostly in the oases and marshlands located within vast wastelands and deserts. During the seven month long summer season, these aquatic havens dry up and force the Cetaphleds to find new bodies of water in which to dwell. They are able to cover large distances by using a built-in catapult system. They begin by unfurling their long tails and plunging the spade-like end into the ground. They then scuttle into position behind the tail with their claws dug far into the soil. Once aligned, they are able to tense the tail up in order to provide maximum tension. They then let go and are sent flying through the air. A largely selfish creature, the Cetapheld will often race another of the same species to an oasis in order to claim it for it's own rather than share it.

Concept: Arctic Pelzfrind
Living in the Northern Tundra the Arctic Pelzfrind is able to withstand temperatures as low as –70ºF. They live in herds and use their long horns to dig up moss, lichen and many other grasses, which makes up most of their diet, from the frozen ground. The horn is also used to fend off predators by tossing them high into the air, normally resulting in broken legs for the would be attackers. During mating season their horn is used in battles to fight for the right to breed. To use the horn they would use the muscles in their neck and their weight to toss things in a seesaw catapult like manner. They are very powerful creatures with large plated bones, both on their underbelly and top, keeping them well protected.

Concept: Catapult Bear
Article on the BS Daily:
"The Grey Mountains have for long had a reputation of being dangerous for the few hang-gliders who venture above its beautiful terrain. Every now and then, there are enigmatic incidents of gliders being knocked out while on air, sometimes ending up in fatal falls. A spectacular sighting by Professor Oakes who was doing research of the green yeti has shed some light on the mystery. He was stalking a cave when he was distracted by an eagle flying above. It's beautiful glide came to an abrupt halt when a rain of rocks hit it, causing it to fall on a cliff below. Before the professor's eyes, a dark, bear-like animal with a reverse upper body and huge bony tail caught and ate the avian before returning to the safety of its cave."

Concept: What name?
September 1st, 2008 #9
This creature also travel minimum in pair, often seen gathering in dozens, however it's not only for mating and companionship, but it is needed for survival. These quick moving creature are carnivores however have no mean of killing a prey alone, its hard outer shell provides basic defense against small predators as it hides cuddle into a ball.
When hunting for food, it travels in pair or group and catapult its partner to attack the prey, knocking the victim unconscious via multiple knock-out attacks. It then hurry to devour the victim while it's in the unconscious state. The creature only need to feast once or twice a month to survive. Each hunt for food often result in quite a number of casualty but because they always travel at least in pairs, the colony population multiply at extremely fast rate.

Concept: Swamp Prowler
The city council needs you! You are strong and powerful and want to gain some experience ?
Deep into the Dark Swamp of Sorrow, lurks the Swamp prowlers. These terrible beasts have been causing fear for to long ! We have to stop them, YOU have to stop them. With their powerful tongues, they are able to shoot mucus balls far away with high precision. They normally feeds on swamp birds, but when attacked they will fight even the mightiest paladin. Be aware, this mucus will paralyze you, penetrate your armor and cause a lot of damage. These monsters are fast, and always attack first because of their initiative ; hopefully, they are not well armored on their belly and legs : this is the place were you have to call the shot.

Concept: Red-footed Spiker
The Spiker hunts like a living, all-in-one bow and arrow. It positions itself on conveniently shaped branches and uses its improbably elastic limbs to pull itself taut and ready to pounce. When launched, spikes lining it's front are deployed and the Spiker flies into it's prey, impaling it and rendering it a little less alive than it was before.
