AllyAlbon - Hairless Ringtail Shortsnout
Concept: Hairless Ringtail Shortsnout
The Hairless Ringtail Shortsnout is a herbivore that lives mostly on short grass and old bits of wood picked up from the edge of pineforests found next to the barrenlands. Their snouts have shortened to almost nothing in order to clip the grass as close to the ground as possible, while other species within the family have retained thick manes and a longer nose to root through the richer undergrowth found in the lower plains.
The males of the species grow enormous, developing thick rolls of fat to signify their aptitude at putting on weight in such a nutritionally poor area. The bulls fight by sheer strength, shoving at each other, nipping and scoring with their strong teeth until the weaker is exhausted.
Females are attracted by the bulls' bright tails that seem almost fluorescent in low light. The male will wiggle and waft his tail side to side, curling and vibrating it to show off his vibrance.

The Rocktail is a creature that can be very dangerous, the habitat where they live is very hot so they must use their legs's hardenesses to autoprotection.
They are carnivore, and the most importante element in their diet is the gnomes, hot gnomes, gnomes that are on fire.

Concept: Ring-Tailed Shortsnout
These bulls have an oddly oversized tail to help counter weigh their front heavy muscle and skeleton anatomy which the males uses when running head on into each other to earn the mating rights of the females of the herd.

Concept: Short Snouted Ring Tail
(A common genus spread out across the northern hemisphere, the short snouted ring tail (B.Circulus) is a placid scavenger of the undergrowth that leads a solitary and relativley oblivious life style owing its survival strategy to its massive population numbers. During seasons of increased humidity bulls begin to develop fleshy lobes on the tops of their heads that are engorged with body fluids that contain hormones designed to condition itself and other SSRT's in the area to come into breeding season.)
Concept: Bull, Ring Tail Shortsnout
The Marmus Goat is known to roam the high country just at the foot of the mountains, sometimes spotted scaling the treacherous heights for the delicacy of mountain mussels when they become scarce. The males are a beautiful species with a distinguished long, ringed tail which the bull uses to with an array of expressive signals to warn the herd of dangers or if another bull was to come to challenge and intimidate away. The diminished snout is a result of breeding for the strongest males have not the longest snouts but the thickest bone density for the head plate.
Beautiful work all

Artist- Daniel Hurd
Concept- Ring-Tailed Short Snout, AKA Leaf Nosed Tamarin
A rare primate from a small moon in the Zeta Reticuli galaxy. Mainly eats insects and worms. The male or "bull" acts as a sentinel standing on the highest point guarding his troop of females and offspring. They aren't considered aggressive but have been known to throw stones at any creature who gets too close to the troop. They get their name from the large flat nose and dark ring pattern on the tail.
Thanks for looking!
Awesome work everyone! I love seeing all the talent in these contests!

Concept: Ring-tailed Shortsnout
In the breeding season the adult males skin flushes with red to attract mates and ward off other males. While they do a lot of posturing and roaring actual fights between two bulls are rare as their strong digging claws and hard boney tail rings can inflict deadly wounds even with their tough armour.
Concept: Bull, Short Snout, Ring Tail or Bound Guardian
This predator was summoned and bound using magic. As it grows new rings are affixed through its tail to maintain the binding. Most often used to guard thaumaturges on pilgrimage to holy sites of power or outside of their laboratories.

Concept: Ring Tailed Pugalemurlope
A fearsome critter.
These docile creatures are hunted for their colorful and prized horns. The species is on the verge of extinction and the naturally lazy bulls aren't helping the matter at all.
Concept: Tjeunis Circulus, Ring-Tailed Shortsnout
Tjeunis Circulus is a warthog like creature foraging its day through the forest.
Having a camouflage it will not be spotted quickly moveing through the forest.
although being a tall and broad creature (up to the human waist) the bull is having a big chest to impress the ladies.
Concept:Bull, Short-snout Ringtail
A predator that swings it's tail to create a whistling sound as air rushes through the main tail ring. The frequency overwhelms a prey's sense of hearing and can disorient them as the Ringtail charges at them. A unique feature of the Bull of the species is the loose rings of bone on the tail ring. When shaken at the right tempo, they create a ringing tone that will hurt the hearing of normal male Ringtails. This is how the Bull Ringtail instills his dominance over the pack. However, if another Bull appears and challenges his authority, he will have to fight to remain in charge as other Bulls are immune to the ringing of the bone rings.
