Concept: Macroporous Chirlak The Chirlak carries its larvae under its perforated carapace and is able to discharge them into nutrient-rich regions at will, by means of peristaltic undulation of its intestines. The bulk of the Chirlak's body and the fronds of its gills offer a sheltered environment for the larvae to feed until they are large enough to survive the open ocean.
On 26 April 1986 01:23:45 a.m. reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant exploded, and the resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. Four hundred times more fallout was released than had been by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. Only bugs could survive such catastrophe, and that resulted in creating a new dangerous and highly venomous spider. These spiders live in dark parts of the Chernobyl plant that was abandoned. The queen spider caries a bag with thousands of eggs. The spiders grow inside of the queen, leaving through the pores. The spiders kill the queen spider when they are ready to reproduce.
A slow and deliberate herbivore that is commonly found in desert climates. It is easily startled, and when threatened will often draw up into a ball, though it has been known to charge when sufficiently provoked. The creature is covered in an exoskeleton of hard plates. During the creature's infancy, these plates are vulnerable to a particular bacteria, which feeds upon the plates and gives them their distinctive porous appearance.
Concept: Pelagic Dentata The Pelagic Dentata is a bottom-dwelling crustacean which has a symbiotic
relationship with the seaweed living in its pores. The plants provide the creature with camouflage and lull nearby fish in a false sense of security.
When the creature detects a fish, it opens its large mouth, drawing in water
and expelling it out the larger pores around the periphery of its carapace.
This sucks the fish in, and the water rushing by the plants' root provide
Concept: Еntombment bug Big mouth and pores that play the role of eyes.This carnivore bug can be found half buried in the ground,waiting for victims,detecting them with the help of the pores that react on smell.
Concept: Reeffish As the Reeffish ages it collects debris from the seabed to cover its rapidly expanding body, secretions from it's skin coat and glue the particles together to create a semi-rigid, translucent exoskeleton.
Slow moving and silent, growth is encouraged on its outer surface, until eventually it supports an entire ecosystem on and around it's back.
The Reeffish sustains itself through waste matter falling onto its porous nutrient absorbing exoskeleton. As the Reeffish rarely moves after reaching adulthood, large gill sacks circulate the water so the Reeffish doesn't suffocate from lack of oxygenated water.
Unfortunately they are prone to invasion from parasitic plants and are slowly dying out.
Several planets undergoing terraforming begin to develop lifeforms that are unique to the makeup of the nature of the planet's theme. Volcanic planets for example, begin to churn into continents of ash and rock, with lava oceans. The Pyric Mudspider is a direct result of the planet's transformation, an organic exo-skeleton formed out of ash, and with the feel of pumice, this organism roots itself in place on the fiery beaches of it's homeworld and through metamorphosis ,develops the planet's first plant life at maturity, the porous shell allows the inner flesh to absorb the heat and minerals in it's environment.
Concept: Levitus Mantissa The porous exoskeleton of this rare jungle dwelling insect draws helium from the atmosphere and stores it in vaccuoles within the exoskeleton. The helium allows for manouverable low level flight as well as the large size of the creature when mature.
The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

Concept: Gressch Born with chitinous skin, the Gressch's slug like body coils, its pores leaking the acid that will eventually eat away at its outer shell, revealing a beautiful but deadly creature. Officially my worst description ever.
