This creature is the result of crossing human DNA with that of crows. The scientists were looking for a way to manipulate DNA so the could create a human with wings. The first experiments went very wrong, because the specimen didn't grow wings but multiple beaks. Those beaks didn't really function as a mouth, they were more like horns. However its body looks very humanoid, it walks like an animal. It can reach speeds up to 45 miles an hour, and makes use of it's horns for empalage.. auch!

Concept: Supersonic Spike
A creature in the leech family. It swings its tail at incredible speeds to impale and hook into prey. The spikes on the tail also secrete a paralysis-inducing poison in its victims to facilitate the slow eating habits of the Supersonic Spike.

My entry for the "Supersonic Spike" creature.
"The Sprinterbug" a predatory hive based insect that lives in temperate and tropical regions. Capable of both bipedal and quadrupedal locomotion, the Sprinterbugs hunt in packs firing venomous quills from their tails in order to bring down larger prey.

On a Terrestrial planet, light years from earth, lives the Razorcat. Usually living in packs, these horse-sized felines can move at extremely fast speeds while hunting prey ranging 4 to 13 feet tall. For large game they are known to run past cutting their legs until the animal falls. While hunting smaller game they pounce and wrap their spiked-tails around the bellies of unsuspecting prey before delivering the final blow.

built for speed, the Velocirat can reach between 75, 80, and sometimes as high as 90 mph. it can reach these speeds due to its lightweight muscular body, mixed with its aerodynamic body shape.
the impressiveness of its speed is only matched by its aggressiveness, which is immense considering that its the size of a medium sized dog.
their hunting technique is to run full speed into larger prey, propelling its spike-like beak into the body of its unsuspecting victim. its bony shoulder formations keep its body from going too far into its preys body. it then fastens its claws into the hide of its prey, giving it the ability to continually stab its prey until it submits to death, and in turn to being the Velocirats meal.

The spike-bug is one of the medium sized predator creatures of Gliese 581 C
When hunting, this carnivorous creature uses electromagnetic energy to throw its spike at supersonic speeds at its victim, it uses the same energy to retrieve it. It can shoot a victim from many miles.
It has no eyes, instead of that the creature has a sort of "radar" which it scans the environment with and pick up signals and frequencies of possible mates or competition.
The energy's of these creatures have different distinct frequencies so they don't retrieve a spike of a member of there own species.
The creature lives and hunts alone and often has a huge territory, when 2 creatures are in the same piece of ground a duel starts for the control of territory. Often standing a few miles away from each other, they start trowing there spike(which takes just a few seconds to impact)
It's said that the soul of the creature is stored in the spike on its back, and if it gets destroyed, the creature dies.

Concept: Crimson Spike
The Crimson Spike was a small size predator that used to roam the deserts of Pannotia, almost 600 million years ago. These creatures were one of the most deadly species in the world. Their bodies were very well adapted for the hard weather conditions and their anatomical structure allowed them to move at speeds up to 160 kilometers per hour, making them extremely dangerous when traveling in packs.
Their mace-like tails were covered in venomous spines that could cause acute pain, paralysis and even death after a long exposure to the toxins.

Octrustean is a small water based cephalopod. This creature hunts in reef and tidal flat areas. By grabbing coral and rock outcroppings to anchor itself then using water pressure it expels poisonous spikes from its semi rigid outer shell into passing schools of fish. It has low manueverability and relies more upon camoflauge and ambush to shoot its spikes rather than traveling quickly.

Concept: Snot Monster
A bipedal creature that shoots crystallized (when in contact with air), hard as steel, supersonic snot spikes at its prey or predators.

Specialized musculature and air sacs allow this creature to compress gases. These are then used to fire deadly spiked projectiles at extremely high speed. The spikes themselves are modified teeth, stored within the large jaw.

Concept: The Duninaday or "Cactus" Bird
The Duninaday Bird lives on the desert planet of Alphabetagamma9. It is a deadly predator. Capable of reaching incredible speeds, it inpales its prey with its boney horns. It is also capable of defending itself with it's spiked, club like tail.
The natives of Alphabetagamma9 refer to it as the Cactus Bird. They joke that god of the birds, Tweetus, fell in love with a cactus and fathered the very first Duninaday bird.
