    Artist: Faernen

    Concept: Praying Peabug


    Even if they look like peas when they born, the Praying Peabugs rapidly grow up.

    When they mature enough, they eventually become too fat to move anymore. In these conditions, finding food is impossible and the creature is doomed to die.

    However, the children of this specie offered themselves to their beloved mother as food.
    For each one hundred sacrificed newborns, the mother give birth to one thousand, allowing the specie to subsist.

    Artist: Reymus

    Concept: Sporecrab


    The sporecrab is one of nature's more bizarre animals, the females of the species are the only ones who mature to adulthood. When the mushroom cap on top of their exoskeleton releases thousands of spores, without procreation, which upon landing in soil grow into larvae sporecrabs.

    The males mature within days but get no farther than the larval stage and thereafter are eaten by the adult female which then fertilizes the mushroom in order to produce more sporecrabs when the next breeding cycle begins.

    Artist: luness

    Concept: Mala Mala


    Ugly? Yes
    Dumb? Oh yeah
    Here you have some truly silly creatures that never match their breeding season with spring, when food is abundant, so they feed on their own eggs right after they start laying them. Luckily, some eggs slither from their chubby and clumsy fingers and fall around them. These eggs are incubated not by the creature but by the warm nest, made of branches, mud and yes, their mom’s fecal matter. Ewww.

    Artist: lkjhgfdsa

    Concept: Jeweled Lyrinx
    A slowly dying planet has reduced Lyrinx to predatation of its own species, not just for precious feeding territories but also as a diminishing food supply. Here a mother weeps as she is reduced to eating one of her own children that did not stray far enough from the nest.

    The early worm catches the worm

    Artist: Ironhead

    Concept: The worm
    This is the Mother-worm. She is to fat and slow to eat other creatures.
    The little creatures try to get the mothers "milk". So she can it her children like on a table.

    Artist: Jerik

    Concept: Arachnidae Primogenitor
    One of the many forms of recently discovered critters of the planet Krusk, this arachnid is a creature that abides to a savage way of life. The mother will eat it's young birthed during the harsh winters, one can look upon this as an act of mercy, saving her young from the horrible death the cold brings. Many other insectoids on which this arachnid lives upon willfully freeze to sustain themselves during the winter. The size of a fully grown female is an estimated average, at that of a 5 year old child.

    Artist: ASettimi

    Concept: Kinderfänger
    Population of this species is low, due to the fact the mother devours its young upon hatching. If days have gone by since last hatching, the mother moves on leaving the unhatched eggs to survive alone. Because of the carnivorous nature of this species, it is known for them to stumble into other nests in search of an easy meal, if nest is unattended, the female will seize nest and wait for unhatched eggs to hatch. However, if a maternal female returns to her nest while a squatter is there, she will fight to the death to protect her offspring, and food.

    Artist: zimfin

    Concept: Aerial Cannibalis
    These creatures were studied on the planet "Primoria" which is largely volcanic. Observation showed that if the mother's energy levels were too low whilst she floated over dangerous volcanic regions, then she would not be able to maintain height and put herself and her young in danger. In order to "refuel" and gain altitude these mothers were seen to consume one or more of their young.

    Artist: Tetrodotoxin

    Concept: Cygnus gypsis
    While hatching their eggs, the females cannot move away from the nest due to predators searching for these delicious protein sources. They depend on their male partners to hunt for food and feed it to them. Sometimes the males get killed during their search for food or are barred from returning, so the only way to prevent starvation and protect their future offsprings the females decide to eat one of the eggs while still hatching the others.

    Artist: skullbeast

    Concept: Potaut2
    On the tributary moon Potaut we revisit it's second major life-form. It seems to be some sort of oversized alien tick in form and function. Potaut has what we call a tragic ecosystem. In such hostile an inhospitable place, life-form 2 has flourished for only one reason. Cannibalism. In the dry season there are many electrical fires. Shortly after the land becomes an inferno, there is not much left in its wake other then scorched earth. So in the dry months food is scarce if its even present at all. The Potaut2 has evolved to devour its young when in need of protein in the dry seasons, hence the biannual birthing.

    Artist: Scorge

    Concept: Gordat
    In her youth, she is power, her legs lean and strong, her teats and belly not yet full until she gives the first, but in no way last, birth of her life. Her first instinct is to consume the newborn while it rests in her pouch, its body already a third the size of hers.
    You see, in the beginning of a young Gordat's life she births only one offspring, and it is allowed to live. As time goes on and she and her worthless mate, who is only a quarter her size, go into the heavy breeding season, her body begins to swell and she grows fat and lethargic. Her voyages from the nest far and few in between. When the second and third are born, the third is immediately devoured, while the second is allowed to live. Instinct teaches her that one is more than enough, and she cannot waste the precious nutrients and fats offered by these ready to eat meals. As a side effect of her cannibalism, along with her mates increasing but dwindling quality of sperm, her brood becomes smaller in size, but more and more in number. Eventually the madness consumes her blood and instinct, and she eats, and she eats, while her weak mate stands watch.
    Occasionally, a lucky youth escapes, and goes on to continue the cycle of bloodletting.

    Artist: the rooster

    Concept: pallbearer
    the site of infant cannibalism by the pallbearer is rare, this secret fetish is done deep in the secluded jungle, away from others of it's kind for the same reason as a human would

    Note: I just got my Wacom today so this is my first official COW, I'm excited for another

    Artist: pepps

    Concept: the rainar

    The rainar is a lonesome creature, living in caves, feeds out of anything, from insects to worms, from mud to her own sons. Doesn´t like to be bothered and the menacing spikes on her back, keep most creatures away.
    But their soft jelly body, is delicious to eat, (if properly treated), and it has been hunted for centuries by brave adventureers in search of glory. This forced the rainarts to develop another defensive weapon wich consists in vomiting acid out of their belly. By sucking her children dry, a rainart can induce a raction in her body, wich causes a large quantity of her body acids to be vomited against her enemy.

    ps. i´m sorry i´m late for this, i intended to post earlier but my internet died. This is the same file i posted earlier in the wip thread, i just added the name and topic. i don´t expect to see myself in the poll, but it would be nice to =p

    Artist: Chuck,Mate.

    Concept: heliotrope-Trichina hermaphrodite
    the heliotrope-Trichina hermaphrodite eats its youngs when damaged or misshapen, as part of its innate survival instinct,
    populating the caverns and cliffs of southern Cruddoria with only the finest specimen of its horrific kind.
    this sort of "perfectionism" in nature could be found in other species,
    yet to a much lesser degree. possesing both male and female genitalia,
    the HTC reproduces, then eliminates any weak links in its genetic heritage, thus perfecting the next generetion every time a new.

    LUNESS: Whoops, dude. My bad.

    They gave me access to the panel that lets me change peoples avatars so I can give out people's COW stars, but not the instructions on how to do it properly. PMing yoitisi now....

    You may want to change your avatar back to the super cool fish skull. PMing you as well.

    SO... according to my records I have to give COW stars to the following people for their recent wins...

    luness has 2
    SCORGE has his FIRST comin'! (you go boy. I's been waitng to see that happen for sooo long. So happy for you, you deserve it.)
    John Bridges gets one for Colossus from Hell
    xagbo goes up from two to three after the dragon round...
    Mr--Jack: my records show you got one for canopy grazer already and now you are going up to two for the tie in the Beatific Dragon round. Is that right?

    Am I missing anyone? (And don't fib, cuz I can check...)

    All righty. I'm making a bunch of bunnies with extra stars for future rounds. My jedi powers sense we might have a couple of new Jakkases-in-training with the way these rounds have been going...

    More soon.

    There are other great works, but this one I liked most. A hell of an ugly critter! Reminded me of a couch potato gobbling chips!

    Definitely Scorge this round, it's a creepy critter, yet I find it strangely cuddly at the same time.

    Michael Jaecks: Bralt hannicart won the "household pest" round. Also, did you include the "aerial cephalopod" round? Also, nice to have things running again! Thanks for picking it up. Not quite feeling next round but I'll be in once things are getting less bloody ;P.

    I chose Scorge because the art is great and it's very obvious that the little ones are from the same species.
    The fact that the mother takes her sons from her ventral pocket (like a kangaroo) is definitely disturbing (is it a kind of fridge ?!)
    And I don't even speak of the details like the little one that tries to escape.

    I also like Tetrodotoxin's entry, because it's shocking : the creature seems very innocent, pure, immaculate... but she eats the baby !

    I voted for Luness, the mother reminded me of it being an endless cycle of the mom eating whatever food there was and passing the children up as they were born. And the little guy on the bottom .

    Anthis: I'm still afraid I will either add one too many stars or not enough. There was a transitional period in there before Canopy Grazer and Colossus from Hell when I think a couple of stars got awarded, but not everyones went through... so lets make this announcement:

    If you are still owed COW stars, PM me with links to ALL the rounds you won... or at the very least the round NUMBER....

    Bralt, I will check yours next though. That one I know about at least... (now)

    Again, there were some rounds in there between the stewardship of yoitisi and me where no stars were given and I'm still working on which ones I don't know about...

    No worries, we'll piece it back together...

    OKAY, UPDATE: I got Bralt's from Household Pet and Arthur-gl from the Cephlapod and then discovered that the Sound Creature was a THREE WAY TIE, which means Wiggers and dwinbotp both got one plus Arthur-gl got a second.

    Man, you kids were burning it up before I ever got here. I'm really kind of happy to see the ties. There have been three in recent weeks, and I am happy to see so many folks trying their best. Keep it up.

    Reasons Behind My Vote

    The explanation of the Chuck-mate's reasoning behind the cannibalism is interesting. In a few of the other cases I find it hard to believe that the young would be eaten in such large quantities, and yet the species survives/evolves. In this case the cannibal habit would not be quite as widespread, and even if it were, the creatures are hermaphrodites so they wouldn't need as large a quantity of children to continue the species.
