    ROUND #235: Deaf, Blind Acid Spitter

    topic:

    ROUND#235 - Deaf, Blind Acid Spitter


    It’s another round of randomly selected traits. This round we have a creature capable of spitting acid, but unable to see or hear. It’s simple enough. Think about reasons why the creature needs to spit acid (defense, hunting, excretion due to it’s acid-heavy diet etc.), and think about what it will need to function being both blind and deaf. Obviously one sense will have to take over most functions, and the sensory organ need not be an existing one. Make sure that the creature is visibly blind and deaf. Don’t, for example, include large ears or eyes as part of the design.

    Round Requirements:
    - The creature must be visible both blind and deaf


    - The creature must have some visible alternate means of sensory perception

    - The creature must have some sort of capability to spit an acidic solution out of some orifice. This capability should either be illustrated in the primary drawing or in a supplemental image.


    Deadline:

    November 9th, 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Do tendrils that can feel things count for the sensory organ?

    As long as it somehow transfers information about surroundings to the creature, it counts.

    Hearing is a very difficult thing to avoid... for example insects can hear, even though they don't have developed ears. Think of spiders for example, all the hairs on their bodies oscillate from the vibrations around them. They're so attuned to this that they can feel the origin of vibrations (other smaller insects) around them. So can spiders hear you when you speak? Weird little alien insects!

    I'm not exactly sure about legs or lack of them...

    Universal reason isn't always fair but it has an amazing sense of humour.

    Cow

    well here is my wip, im not sure im going to be able to finish it but i will try to make time, the concept is simple, the creature movement is pretty much like a toad, jumping, also it will have that toad bag filled with acid and with little holes to spit it when its time to hunt, the variation at the top right corner would be the creature right after using its acid, also as it doesnt have eyes or ears, its got a trunk so it can smell everything around it.
