    Concept: The Elepino


    The Elepino is a little insectivore. It's living underground like a rabbit. It is really inoffensive. As it'S deffense, it has two couch of skin that are not glued togheter so those couch can swip. When it's attaqued, it's long tail swip over the body with the fur, living the body with just a primar couch of skin. That way, the predator is distracted and thinks it has the elepino while the creature run away.

    I don't know if the description is clear. English is not my primar language so I''m kind of having a hard time explaining my creature. And that's it! It was a pretty fun thread

    PS: I don't understand how to get the little clip on the image

    Concept: Venenum Necopi


    Venenum Necopi, also known as just Necopi, translated means Poison Surprise. To defend themselves they puff out their fur. 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.

    Concept: Surprise Defense Strategy

    For my critter I mixed a few different animals. I drew influences from Aardvarks, anteaters, and rats. I wanted something that looked rather docile. It's surprise defense is it's odd shaped nose. Although some feel this nose looks a little like sex organs it is actually 2 air sacs that expand when the animal is alarmed. These giant balloons surprise predators and often scare them away.
    This creature also has quills on it's back in the event that it has predators on both sides.
    Nick named the Tube Rat this guy is an insectivore that digs grubs and other slimy bugs out of rotting logs and leaf litter.

    Thanks for looking!!!!!!!!!!!
