    Concept: Rattus Accipitridae

    During spring time when it is mating season, strange sounds can be heard from the heart of the Forrest. The howling comes from the Rattus Accipitridae, who are known for their strange mating behavior.
    When the creature cry's it presses it tongue to the bottom of his throat to make a range of high frequency noises.
    Loud Cry's are used to attract the female creatures from miles and miles away. Off course there is also a danger that they attract the male species, in that case a fight for dominance occurs. The challenge is that they destroy the red sack of their opponents, because a larger sack is what makes them attractive for the female species and gives them a higher chance to mate.
    When a sack is destroyed it mostly takes a whole year for it to regenerate.

    Concept: Snow Howler
    The Snow Howler lives in frigid regions, subsisting on scarce plant material hidden under layers of snow. Its tusks and beak-like snout helps it in shoveling snow out of the way. The large nasal chamber as well as the large throat pouch act to warm air before use in respiration and for efficient removal and use of liquid content in the atmosphere. This Howler specimen is a female. Females are larger, with a much more pronounced throat pouch to help during gestation and warming the young after birth. The mother rests with its single or twin calves protected under its throat and closest to the warming throat pouch.

    The Snow Howler is solitary in nature, with scarcity of food necessitating a very sparse population for any given area. The polar bear is the only known predator to the adult Snow Howler, while wolves and polar bears attack unprotected young. While the nasal and throat pouch serve to warm the air, the Howler gets its name from its preferred form of long-distance communication. Howling is used to deter predators, but it's most noticed use is by the female. The Snow Howler cow will howl to announce her rediness to mate. The better the female can howl, the wider range of males she can reach and choose from for a suitable mate. After choosing and then after mating, she howls and chases the males away so she doesn't have to compete with them for food.

    Concept: Trumpet Quottle
    The largest of the quottles, Trumpet Quottle are a forest dwelling species that use their powerful diaphragm and throat to produce long resonant howls which deafen and terrify potential predators. For all their considerable bulk and aggressiveness these creatures subside entirely on foraging nuts and raiding termite or ant colonies. Trumpet Quottles travel alone, or in small herds of 2-4 individuals during mating season. These animals dig large but shallow dens to sleep away the daylight hours, coming out at night to investigate insect colonies that have moved into the trees that they periodically knock down with their howls. Its large toothless mouth is equipped with a hard palette for grinding vegetation and a long sticky tongue for slurping insects. Quottle's Eyes are large and highly heat sensitive which, paired with their remarkable olfactory senses, make it extremely effective at tracking its favorite food. It's eyes have a large transparent lid that snaps closed as the Trumpet Quottle howls, or feeds, protecting it from insect stings and flying debris. Their horns are large winding airways that allow the creature to make a large range of sounds both for communication and defense.

    Concept: Rewsh
    the "REWSH" lives in the deepest chinese forrests. being a very rare and rogue species they live most of their life by themselves. but during mating season they have a hard time finding others of it's kind in their huge habitat. Therefor they have developed what is known to be the loudest howl that can even be heard over miles in the thickest bamboo forrest.

    Concept: volek

    Attachment 979513

    permanent loss of hearing, broken bones, and ruptured organs. these are just a few of the many possible injuries that can be caused by the massive volume of the volek's scream.

    living in arid desert flatlands, the volek hunts prey of all sizes, even those that are more then 5 times its size (the volek being roughly the size of a large male lion). its method of hunting is to creep up as close to the prey as it can, once the prey notice it, its already too late. its scream can stun a victim within a mile, and kill within a hundred yards.

    the voleks anatomy has adapted to handle the incredible volume in 2 ways, first, it's internal organs are protected by an internal insulation, and a sturdy body cavity. and second, the large claws on its front and back legs are used to hold itself in place when the force of its scream pushes the volek backwards.

    the scream is created by an abnormally large lung capacity, and the force of an extremely flexible, muscular ribcage. it lasts at the most 2 to 3 seconds, making it less like a scream, and more like a cannon blast.

    Concept: Howler of the Northerrn Peaks

    This is a kind of predator that lives in the highest peaks of the northern mountains.
    They feed with other animals and do not attack humans unless they feel completely trapped.
    In this moment they throw a hideous shriek in variable frequency which is able from to stun to make explode the body cavities of the attackers, such as the rib cage and the cranial cavity.
    The howl can be heard many miles away and it's really strange to have an opportunity to hear it. When it happens, mountain villagers say the best is cover the ears tightly or put the head under the water, and wait till the long howl stops.
    Its splendid spotted fur is highly appreciated, cause of its natural resistance and the beauty curly hair.
    King Zalamarr II was known for cover his royal battle armor with one of this furs, but were hundreds the warriors that died trying to achieve it for him.

    Concept: Aufilus Camoflagious

    The Aufilus Camoflagious is an unfortunate creature. Not only is its pelt highly sought after but it also seems to be easily tracked by both man and it's natural predators. Luckily this creature has a highly developed brain and a highly effective defence machanism. When approched by a threat the Aufilus Camoflagious howls madly at the approching danger while staring it out with its big red shiny eyeballs in an attempt to frighten it away.
    Strangely these creatures and becoming rarer and rarer by the day...

    Concept: Dynatos sauros (Loud Lizard)
    This is a prehistoric creature, one of the larger bird-like reptiles to have lived during the Jurassic period. Not being particularly strong or quick, it relies on its deafening scream to stun small prey, and to avoid larger, more powerful creatures getting too close. It perches on high up branches to get close and blasts them mid-flight causing them to drop to the ground.

    Concept: Slaptailed Screamer

    The Slaptailed Screamer is a relative of the cat family. It has the unusual evolutionary advantage of self-regenerating intestines that double as vocal chords. The Screamer starts at a low and murmuring growl, which grows in volume for several minutes until it begins slapping it's twin tail pads together and issues forth a scream of such intensity that it actually forces out part of the intestines that will later regenerate. Current scientific theory posits the notion that they do this for no better reason than to be totally annoying.

    Concept: Two-Horned Howlah
    The two-horned howlah, also known by its scientific name "Hornus Howlarus", is a bulky, bovine like creature that resides in grassy meadows around the globe. When so provoked by any creature, predatory or not, it is capable of producing a howl of up to 194 decibels, the loudest noise known to man. The two horns protruding from its head are what makes this sound possible. Vibrations produced from specialized internal organs are projected out through the mouth and simultaneously through these horns, which are also lined with several other mouth-like openings. In total, the six additional 'mouths' can focus sound projection upon a single target with a range up to 100 meters. At short range, unsuspecting field mice can be sent flying miles into the distance by its formidable bellow.

    Concept: Greater Spotted Howler
    The greater spotted howler is one of the loudest creatures known to mankind. Found in the vast, dusty deserts of Telemachus III, they use their tremendous howls to stun or kill prey and would-be predators, as well as to locate others of their kind over distances of many kilometres. A howler's cry requires a great deal of energy, although they rarely howl at their full capabilities. Such an extreme howl is only let out in the greatest of emergencies, due to the high risk of internal trauma to the howler. Contrary to popular belief, telemachian howlers are generally quite docile unless they have reason to feel threatened. Even so, they should generally be avoided on the off chance that something else may set them off.

    Concept: bruakhian graaawr

    On bruakhia, one of delta-4´s outer rings´planets, the graaawr is one dangerous species.
    the creature´s sharp claws and teeth itself are not what an unguarded wanderer wishes to encounter but what makes him even more dangerous is his elaborated sound-organ.
    a roaring graaawr will lead to injuries varying from numb- and deafness to serious earbleeding, cerebral damages and exploding arteries and eyes.
    the graaawr has a combined sound-organ wich consists of a cavernous tongue-add-on and crest on the forehead.
