Swamptrap is an aquatic animal from the endless swamps of Poseidon II. In the process of evolution Swamptrap became were like with a plant named Poseidon's Lily. That's why many hebrivores are often get confused. When anything touches it leaf-like limbs Swamptrap radidly squeezes it.Digesting system of Swamp trap allows it to eat it's prey literally with it's own limbs.

The Clubelope is a very rare relative to the antelopes. It is the biggest known antilope and by far the heviest, it is almost as muscular as a buffalo. It lives in the wide savannah of africa eating grass and leaves on the ground.
Its head has a very long and flexible extension, holding a strong wipe like sinew with a cub at its and. The cub is surprisingly light, because its made of hair.
When the clubelope is attacked it can scare and confuse the predators by spreading their ears. When you look at it from the front the pattern looks like a big grim face. If that doesnt work the antilope can swing the club over its head and strike at the predator. The clubelope is quite accurate when it comes to aiming with it. For the case the club misses, two side horns give some extra protection.
The clubelope then swings the club back on its back by a movement and its strong neck muscles.

"Bogworms" Are a closer relative to a salamander than to a dragon. Despite their appearance, they are peaceful herbivores. Since they live in the "Black Bogs", they always have to stick their faces in the black, oozy waters to reach their food, giving them the appearance of a savage animal caked in dry blood.
They live in packs. The alpha wears the skull of the previous alpha as a sign of pride and dominancy, not savagery or tyrancy.
First COW. Hope it's good!

Concept: Tsih Varal or "Lovebee"
The Tsih Varal or "lovebee" as the Maya would have called it was the largest flying insect ever living in the guatemalan tropic forrest. Little is known about the Tsih Varal as the were extinct before 500 AD. It's decorative floral back and the colorful body filled with delicious nectar made it the native's favourite prey. When caught and drenched of the sweet and as scientists say slightly hallucinogenic fluid the "Lovebird" was usually stuffed with wool to remain it's unique size and form. After the head and legs were removed it was a very rare and highly appreciated gift and embellishment.

Concept: Syringe Beetle
When the colonists first discovered the beetle, it sparked terror throughout the group. The beetle climbs on high branches or overhangs and waits for prey to walk under them. Then they drop down and plunge their barbed legs into their victims so they can not be thrown off. Then they inject their prey with a toxin that paralyzes or kills depending on the victims size. Then it starts to eat quickly in case the victim gets movement back or another large predator decides to come along. the females choose mates by the amount of toxin they can create as this allows larger prey to be taken. After mating the males find a prey item and injects it as the female burries into it to lay her eggs.

Concept: Bluespore Stag
A particular species of grass-like fungus has adapted to grow in the hide of the male Bluespore deer, and usually sprouts in early maturity as the stag begins its first rutting season. In older animals the fungal stems cover much of the back, flanks and limbs. After the stag's death the fungus will consume the body, providing it with enough energy to fruit, after which it too will die back, leaving nothing - not even the creature's skeleton - behind. This astonishing lifecycle has yet to be adequately explained by evolutionary biologists.

Concept: fryst vingar av den svarta himlen
That which rides at the vanguard of the frozen skies,
who's breath freezes the hardest of hearts;
who's piercing scream sends the boldest men to cower and pray,
Harbinger of the coming winter.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.
“You need people like me.
You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""

Concept: The Crested Soura
The Crested Soura is the largest carnivore in Brubeo Canyon. Males can measure 55cm (at the shoulder) and weigh up to 147 kilos. Females tend to be larger and more aggressive than males. They are opportunistic eaters, consuming anything from small game to plants and berries.
The Crested Soura’s feet are well suited for climbing with flexible toes and strong claws. Their long tails help the animal balance as well as dissipate heat from its body. While the reason for the boney plating on the skull is unknown, it is believed that it aids with some heat dissipation and dew collection, as individuals have been spotted licking each other’s faces at sunrise

Concept: Forest King
These rarely seen, large, herbivores have a startling appearance but are quite harmless. Legends portray them as magical spirits and protectors - and perhaps they are?
(am hoping to eventually complete a whole series of otherworldly forest creatures to match)
