    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Scarn:
    concept: This slimey creature can usually be found around swamps and bogs and is usually about the size of a frog. The creature feeds by "rolling" its large vascular cell around its prey, much like how an amoeba does. The clear gelatin is produced inside the existing gelatin by rearranging the molecules of its prey by processing it through the "head", and the creature grows. The tentacles on the top of the organism is its air intake and release - but don't try to clog them, or you'll be pulled in!

    Baaaah!:
    concept: Forest dwelling, prickly critter, that scampers around in the undergrowth. It's covered in a heavy layer of quills. When antagonised it runs at it's target, jumps and rolls itself into a ball of spikes as it fly's onwards. Needless to say, touching or poking it will get it very angry.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Thestral:
    concept: DollyWog also known as the Dolly Doxie (chewofftus digitus)
    This carnivorous animal is usually found nesting in medium to high grass and also floating on the surface of ponds and small lakes. Its unique back markings make it particularly dangerous to small young children who, thinking it is a doll, gleefully advance to pick it up. The Dollywog does not look kindly upon being picked up and will commence to ferociously sting and tear into the young child’s hands shredding them with razor sharp teeth. The Dollywog is an endangered species and it is illegal to harm them. They are commonly kept as pets in Australia where they are deemed less dangerous than 90% of the other creatures living on that continent.

    Matt Dixon:
    concept:The 'Fisherman Blob' has a soft, boneless body which allows it to squeeze into confined spaces where it lies in wait for it's prey. With it's body mass hidden from view, the creature dangles out it's long tongue which ends in a mass of complex glands and muscles which can be flexed in order to 'sculpt' an appropriate lure for passing food. When touched, the sticky saliva that coats the tongue adheres to the prey and a reflex action causes the tongue to retract back into the mouth. Gulp.
    Here we see a Fisherman practising the 'dancing kitten' lure. Don't touch that!

    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: One day a biologist was walking through an alien jungle on the planet Bebop and rocksteady and came across an interesting little critter that had these big liquid filled balls on its back - he thought for a second but couldn't resist, so he grabed the little fellar to take back to his labs. Only problem is, as soon as he touched it, the bubbles burst in an atomic manner spraying hot acid all over. - guess he learned his lesson. "Don't touch that!"
    Later they named the creature " DTT!"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    simmi:
    concept: The "Apple of death" creature lures its prey into position using a special muscle shaped like a apple. That muscle generates a smell wich drives all mammals in the area crazy for the apple. The creature senses motion in the ground and once the prey is in position, it will open its body/mouth, engulfing the prey. It will then digest everything execpt metal wich it defecate into the surroundings.
    The creature can turn around its axis using spikes on its hyde and also move slowly to other places. The creature can reproduce without mating. The offspring will start as a small spiked ball, then it burrows itself into the ground and sets up its "apple".At early age the offspring can eat a cat or a dog. A fullgrown creature can engulf horse or a cow.

    Craig D:
    concept: Poison arrow frog girl (Dendrobates hominidus)
    While on a class field trip, Sheila was gummed by a radioactive frog.
    She soon began secreting toxic mucous through her skin and killed all the grabby boys in her school . Seems that unlike animals, people cannot figure out that bright colours mean "Don't touch that."

    coundrum:
    concept: The Squog spends much of the year in a petrified state, attempting to turn into another creature of its choice. As a result they must store highly condensed globules of food suring these periods. If they are disturbed during a transformation the globules are speedily released, resulting in an unpleasant experience for both the Squog and any creatures within a mile of the event.

    OLSEN:
    concept: Project "Smart Vävnad", or "Smart Tissue" for you non swedish speakers out there, started in the late 60's in Malmö, Sweden. The goal was to create the first self reproducing carbon based artificial intelligence. Using top notch equipment supplied by the underground russian maffia, project leader Rudolf Knegarbrud and his team of left wing geniuses managed to produce the first working AI in 1975. It was capable of performing numerous "tricks", too numerous to mention here, they were however, truly numerous.
    Going through many prototypes, it took Knegarbrud six more years to produce the first truly intelligent Smart Tissue Artificial Intelligence (STAI). This STAI was even capable of communicating with the team through a simple device using morse code as the language. Its first, and last words were "DON'T TOUCH THAT!!!".
    The project was canceled in 1983, as Rudolf Knegarbrud and his entire team died in a freak piano related accident.
    This here is the only remaining photo of the working STAI.

    akhad:
    concept: This is Fango, he is for sale and was one of a litter of 5 "fango`s" that are only found on the small orbiting moons of recently discovered planet Splot. He makes a great guard dog and is partly house-trained. He has a good appetite, prefers his meat un-cooked and is especially fond of children !

    TheMuffinKing:
    concept: Scissorfist is very busy, what with all the disembowling thats needs to be done. I guess now is the time for a P.D.A. Oh and it's bi@#& when he needs to pick his nose, leading to the unseen label "don't touch this" at the base of his left "hand".

    Gloklund:
    concept: Be ever mindful of the Yattering Skinch, it loves to lure those with a sympathetic ear with its mournful '"cry" a sound that wont be easily forgotten as one picks up the creature in distress. A favored delicacy of the Skinch is the eyes of its hapless victim.

    bracomadar:
    concept: Bad Touch (Mistact)
    The Mistact, which translates from Latin to “bad touch”, is a rabbit sized creature that lives deep within the Amazon. Don’t let its size fool you though; this is a very deadly and skilled predator.
    It was discovered in early 2004 by a Brazilian logging company stumbled upon a group of the animals feasting on a carcass. Five men lost their lives to the creatures before help could arrive. Two survivors remain hospitalized to this day due to their injuries. Since then scientist have flocked to the area to study these mysterious animals. Very little is known about them, but research has began to shed light on their strange lives.
    These creatures will lay in wait for days for their next meal. Venom sacks on the side of its head pump venom to its front two spurs located at the end of its arms. When prey is in reach it will lash out with its forearms and inject its deadly package. Its poison eats away the flesh around the wound. A puncture the width of a pencil can widen to six inches within minutes. It also causes the blood to thin and prevents clotting. Its prey will usually end up bleeding to death after running a short distance. The mistact will then track down the victim using its keen sense of smell. Once found it will continue to spur the corpse to soften it up for consumption. For larger prey like capybaras, or tapirs it will chirp loudly, sometimes hours, for other mistacts nearby to feast upon the carcass with it. Mistacts will fiercely defend their meal against scavengers. They only allow other mistacts to eat alongside them.
    During the wet season when the Amazon floods, the mistacts will take to the water. They are able to breath both out of land and in the water. It is thought they could be a close relative of the first animals to take to land billions of years ago. Their web feet allow them to travel quickly through the water and chase after small fish. During this time they will mate and burry their eggs in the water covered forest floor, usually in a fortress of tangle of roots for added security. After the eggs are buried, the two parents will feast on fish and patrol the area to defend their young against predators. Only when the waters recede back during the dry season will the eggs hatch. A few days after hatching, the parents will go their separate ways and leave their babies to fend for themselves. Young mistacts actually have more potent venom than the adults. This probably helps them defend against predators better since its at this time they are most vulnerable. They will eat small rodents, insects, and frogs until they reach adulthood about 7 months later. These rare creatures have little research done on them, so there are even more that is not known about their life.
    Only a few people who have had the unfortunate luck to be spurred by a mistact has lived to tell about it. It does not seem to prefer the taste of human flesh and would rather avoid them along with other large predatory animals. However, if it feels threatened it will lash out. Some scientists believe a larger cousin of the mistact might be the cause of the rumors of the now famous chupacabra in Latin America. Only time will tell if this creature turns out to be another animal currently hidden to science. There are still large amounts of the Amazon that are left unexplored and many species that have yet to be discovered.
