C.O.W. #288,Surprise Defense Strategy . WIPS
For more info and details about the rules go here:
ROUND #288, Surprise Defense Strategy
ROUND#288, Surprise Defense Strategy
this week is a bit of an open interpretation round. by that i mean you will have a loose set of rules to follow but a lot of the design, and creature concept will be left up to you.
the rules are these. the creature your designing must be fragile and vulnerable to physical damage or death. because of its fragility it has developed an unusual defensive strategy that keeps predators from harming it. so, your task is to invent this interesting defensive ability, and show it in action.
so like i said its a pretty open freestyle kinda week. so get crazy and try to get really creative.
requirements this week...
- the creature must appear fragile, and physically vulnerable.
- you must show an unusual defensive strategy for your creature that keeps it alive.

Hi everyone! I'm new on this forum and I decided to try COW this week. I did a really quick sketch of my idea. I waould like to do a creature inspired of a rabbit and a praying mantis because everything cute as a rabbit looks innofensive and the shape of a praying mantis doesn't seem to be so strong. My defense strategy is that this creature as a long tail that distract its predator. This tail is actually removable, but its skin is removable too. So the tail is quite long, wich is usefull because it makes distance between the creature and its predator. Althrough, as the first couch of the skin goes with the tail, the predator thinks it has get the creature but it's not, so it give time to it to run away. Voilà! I'll be there soon with a better sketch. This one was only to kinda remember my idea!

I found this link, has some prity cool inspiration if anyones having trouble with ideas. The hagfish defence is prity effective especially, plus it's prity funny trying to watch fish eat it.

Finally, I decided to go for a little cutter design. Here's what I'm working on:

Here's my little critter. To defend themselves they puff out their fur like a pufferfish. Not a very effective defence, but that's the surprise for the predator as the little balls of fur have a gland that produces a nasty toxin which when mixed with their saliva becomes lethal. They then lick their coats, covering themselves in the mixture so before the predator can clamp with the deadly blow, it recoils. They must coat themselves regularly, but at night this isn't possible due to sleep and this is when the cleverest of predators takes its chance. Don't know if I'll get it all finished but I thought I'd give this brief a go.

i thought this might be a funny one,
this frog like creature has these huge gushy anime eyes, it hypnotizes its hunter with them, making them think he is all cute and cuddly... and then *BAM* this things eyes get bigger and explode in a mess of burning acid all over you. (the eyes eventually grow back too)
