    C.O.W. - #127: Strange Walker - VOTING!

    Artist: stevethebunny

    Concept: Orange Footed Skupel


    A small amphibian, the Orange Footed Skupel uses its six feet to scurry along cave floors and walls while using its bio-luminescent tentacles to attract small insects and mammals. The most curious thing of all is the creatures fanned tail which resembles that of a crayfish. Many believe it is a throw back to the creatures ancestors and that it simply was never removed form it's dna.

    Concept: Bassett Boy
    Little is it known that licorice laces are actually made from the stretched legs of Bassett Boys. Bassett Boys were first discovered by the confectionary giant 'Bassett' (hence the name), and were almost made extinct due to being over-eaten by small children. They now only exist in a remote underground warehouse somewhere in Sheffield, where they are bred for their sweet tasting legs. Due to their 'creepiness' it was thought unwise to use the Bassett Boy as their trademark mascot, so they instead opted for Bertie (who is arguably just as creepy).

    Artist: Schwager

    Concept: Bouncy Bobblebug

    Native to the marshlands and grassy valleys of Hillyria, the Bobblebug is a peaceful creature that feeds on insects, worms and other small creepy crawlies. Nomadic by nature, it spends its life prancing around the countryside, swinging its big belly and showing off its bouncy bobbles. The bobbles themselves contain the creature’s eggs, which are fertilized and nourished by the parent's body upon its death.

    Concept: Gontah
    A gontah is a beast of burden found throughout the desert continent. This hexaped is renowned for its endurance, and its stability under the hot sun. The sure-footed mammal has tanned skin and thick protective plates to reflect sunlight. The gontah's docile temperament makes it a top choice amongst traders and transporters.

    Concept: Seven-Legged Snow Runner
    This arctic creature prefers the snow-covered northern wastes. Its four, long hooves are perfectly adapted to sliding on the frozen surface of the snow while the sharp, hard claws on its other three feet propel it across the vast snow fields of its habitat. There are a few documented cases of Snow Runners being raised in captivity and trained to pull sleds.

    Artist: Vorace

    Concept: The Walker
    The walker is one of the beast I discovered during my travel to the east. We saw them first in the savana, but they were also present in the rocky desert. These creatures are fast, much more than our better horses. They didn't seems to be bothered by us. They hunt in pack, using their sting nose to wound their prey. When the prey is too tired because of the blood loss, the walker pack devour it, always starting with the head. I ordered my men to capture one. They did try a lot of different tricks to lure them, but without any result. My only memory of this mysterious specie is one of their ''living gems''. I am eager to go back to my laboratory to study this interesting piece !

    Concept: Yellow Spotted Squablebubble
    The Squablebubble is a desert creature, named after the orange bumps or "bubbles" all over its' body used to store energy in the form of fat and the "Squabling" sound it makes when calling for a mate. It has big legs and wide feet to help with traveling over sand dunes and in the digging for food and water. The bubbles are seen as a rare delicacy that is only eaten by the most privalaged because of the Squablebubble being a very fast and dangerous animal.

    Artist: Warmll

    Concept: The Root Walkers
    These enormous forest gaurdians are very selfless. They walk by sacrificing their limbs. As they take a single step, they violently break off the moving limb. This limb soon becomes rooted and starts growing into a tree. They stand there motionlessly, until the broken limb grows back (in a matter of seconds\minutes), they continue their painful walk, until the once bare field is transformed into a beautiful utopia. once their job is finished they dissolve into the ground, until they are needed once more.

    Artist: Peg

    Concept: The sand walker

    These creatures propel themselves forward with two strong back legs, the front pair of legs is initially moving with the walking motion but as the back legs picks up the pace, the front pair of legs sort of "floats" over the dunes while the back pair gets into stride.

    The creature uses the front legs in order to navigate at high speeds and to anchor itself to the slippery dunes. If the Sand walker needs to make an abrupt stop, the large tail flicks around in order to run a thorny protrusion on its back into the rock/sand to slow down.

    Concept: Vignerian Pig
    The 'Vignerian Pig' frequently appears in the southern vignerian desert and surrounding lowlands. It is the laughing-stock of the whole 4th quarters continent for it's silly walking style.
    Evolution had it that the pig's appearance and whole body changed throughout the time to adapt to its surroundings local vegetation.
    The Vignerian Pig's bellyfur is long and grassygreen and it's legs resemble the numerus orig-sticks. Rolling on the back when the sacaree-eagle is on the prowl it is completely safe from the predator with weak sight.
    The downside of this safety is obviously the deformation of the pig's legs and feet causing it to walk like noone would want to walk...

    Artist: Meganite

    Concept: Wall-walker
    The wall-walker lives on cliffs. It uses its four legs to scamper along small cliff ledges, running swiftly from place to place, somehow not losing its balance. If threatened, it hugs tightly against the wall, using the spikes along its top ridge to anchor itself to the cliff face. To hunt, it also uses its long legs as a trap, holding prey still so it can sink the long fangs on its underside into it.
