    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Concept: Dread Wolf
    The dread wolf is a voracious predator roaming the arid plains of Jakury VII. It preys on everything that gets into its way including its own brood.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
