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.

    Artist: Vaejoun

    Concept: Clubelope


    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.

    Artist: NeonDragon

    Concept: Bogworm


    "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.

    Artist: monotony

    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.

    Artist:McGhoul
    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.

    Artist: Lenorekitty

    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)

    Concept: Falkor: The Luck Dragon


    (as per the wiki)
    Falkor is a luckdragon, and a friend of Atreyu in the book/ movie "The Never Ending Story". He is the only luckdragon to appear, although five others are mentioned in passing. He helps Atreyu in his quest to find a cure for the Empress.

    Falkor has an elongated, wingless body with rudimentary paws and many white scales and hairs on the length of his body that appear pink in dull light. The form of his head is described less precisely, though his eyes are mentioned as being the colour of rubies.

    Unlike most of their dragon kin, luckdragons possess neither an immense physical strength, nor great magical talents. Their only distinctive ability that sets them apart is their incredible luck in everything they do. A luckdragon's typical answer to how it is going to accomplish a nearly impossible feat is always "With luck!" Despite such carelessness, it seems their luck truly never fails and is a valuable asset for their companions.

    ========
    I wanted to include Atreyu for scale, but I wasn't sure if a character should be included. But a reckon a Greenskin Child would stand the height of Falkor's clasped hands.

    Concept: Mountain Eater

    This creature is born from thunderous storms that occur over mountain ranges, and limbs sprout from mysterious red clouds. The Mountain eater devours mountains very slowly, taking centuries to swallow whole a mountain. It's mouth increasingly getting bigger, seemingly having an unlimited jaw expansion span. It is incredibly harmless as well, as scary and large as it looks, and in place of mountains, is rugged earth and small hills.

    http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/n...eatercopy2.jpg

    These organisms can be found in the upper troposphere of the large gas giant MX 6 orbiting this twin star system. The organism processes the gases from the surrounding air and converts them to a energy source for food and propulsion.

    The scarlet red vascular structures which hang off this creature are vein like organs which allow direct gaseous exchange from the surrounding air.

    C.O.W. #168 Freestyle Creature Round -- Voting!

    Oilung - Descendant from the first couple of oposite elementals (water and fire) this creature live in large packages near of places where lava and water find each other . Their food is basically coumpand with rocks. They have a strong stomach "juice" that burns like incandescent magma, this is also your only protection; they can throw a great amount of this disgestive juice in case of danger. They intelligence is not in the field of the rationalism but in the sensibility and connexion whit the nature arounde the pack. They have a limited vocabulary and great skill in paints the price for they work is very great in most of all markets from the know world.

    Caos inside....

    Artist: Steve Somers

    Concept: Family Vacation


    Every February Frank likes to gather up the youngins and take 'em cross ocean on a Family Trip. Ever since their Mom was swallowed up by that Sperm Whale when she got a little too close to the massive bait ball of sardines, Frank likes to hold on real tight to the traditions they started as a family. In another 12 years the children will shed their adolescent faces and their beautiful, smooth adult faces will emerge.

    Deep in the abandoned coal mines dotting the Appalachians, the Motherweb spider makes it's home in the dark. Venturing out only at night, this giant arachnid preys on would be spelunkers and nearby campers, paralyzing and encasing them in webs, carrying them back to be future meals like young on her back.

    After 20 years of service to the sorcerer, this creature stopped listening and attacked the people he was once protecting. many of them died. The sorcerer then cast a curse on this beast and sent it to the Dark Forest. In that forest where thousands of creatures and many cursed creatures existed, Elegrund was one of the strongest. After hunderds of years, surviving the Dark Forest, he looks like this...

    Whitewood's Horror has plagued the countryside of Whitewood for centuries. Only those foolish enough to venture deep into the forest ever see the beast.

    Concept: the flow keepers

    backstory
    these beings are called the flow keepers ,as they are keeping the infinite flow of energy going from one place to the other thus spreading it across the planet,usually very busy so they wont attack other species unless they are attacked first due to the fact that they have a job to do and any usless fights will just stall them .

    Concept: NOHALIAN


    The Nohalian had seen all that it needed. It was a magical morning in the woods, but that would not stall it. The world of humans was no place for a creature like itself. It would return to its own Dimension and report what it seen to its Master. Likely there would be no more travels to this Planet. The creature inhaled a last time to remember the freshness of the wind. The Earth was beautiful, but far too hostile. If it stayed it might have to kill again.
