    C.O.W. - #054: Sand Hunter



    FINAL!
    C.O.W. - #054: Sand Hunter

    The sand hunter camoflauges himself as a camel... his real head emerges from his fake ass and he mauls you and chomps on your bones! the bulk of his neck and head is hidden inside his hump. His tail is used to mimic the silouhette of a camel's head.

    I'm thinking of either a spined critter that roles down sand dunes to impale its soft-bodied prey, or some sort of sand-swimmer. I'll have to ponder this for a while.

    Sandstorm Walkers are among the deadlier hazzards facing travellers who attempt to cross the desert that lies between the cities of Great Wheel and Mosaic. These highly intelligent pack hunters use the sands of the desert as both weapon and camoflage. Much of a Walker's internal structure is a complicated system of hollow tubes which allow a Walker to syphon sand up through its feet, while openings located higher on its body draw in air. The walker uses this stored air both to expel sand and reshape the flow of the wind around it. Packs of Sandstorm Walkers work in concert to craft small, localized sandstorms that mask their numbers and exact positions. Walkers also use these blasts of sand to disorient and disable prey.

    Taken from the journal of Jonathan Holmes, 1816-1845)

    C.O.W. - #054: Sand Hunter

    Journal (1844, Zaire, Africa)

    You know, this creature ain't that bad at all. just staring at me with them glased eyes... You whouldent tell it could kill me in a split second... Man its hot out here. Hmmmm, i was lucky- it's just had its meal. Poor African. It's a shame these are becoming extinkt, after all, the villagers hunt them down just for there beautiful red fur... Hmmm might be the last one i will ever see. Funny fackt about this creature is- the locals here in zaire call it "sandhunter", becouse it hunts the sands of the desert for humans. It's digestion system can't digest bones. They spectacurly grow to his own wich creates fantastic forms. Wow, wish you where here to see this Elize.

    (Jonathan Holmes never returned from Zaire)
    One year later the last Escapolus Nescutus aka "sandhunter" was found near Boende, Zaire dying from severe stabs to the stomach by African spears.

    There is the golden mole, which sorta "swims" through the sand, I guess that could be tweaked into some badass hunter somehow... *goes to ponder*

    I am totally awesome and one day I'll be able to prove it.

    The desert devil

    This large creature, from one to three meters long, lives primarly in South Africa deserts, people from the African villages calls it "the desert devil" and says that they can kill from foxes and rabbits to camels and humans. This creatures predation method is fascinating and almost perfect; they dig a hole in the sand or some times wait for a sand storm to get 'em covered and then they get their back and elbow thorns out and wait for their victims to get near, once the prey steps anywhere near the thorn their tail moves at 45 meters per second and sting their victim filling its body with a neurotoxic venom that interfere with neurotransmissions and paralyzes it within seconds, then they just come out to have their great banquet or to save it at the hole in where they'd been...

    Mirage Beast

    Many a poor soul has found themselves lost in the arid wastelands of the Gobi. Blinded by hunger and thirst it is easy to get off course and remain so. However few are aware of a danger more perilous than the oppressive heat and endless miles of sand. Sometimes after being lost in the desert for a substantial amount of time a man's mind will start to loose all rationality and will produce false images of lakes, streams, and other water sources. However this occurs after quite a long time in the desert without water....but not always. The mirage beast lies in wait in the dunes. It weaves enticing images with its advanced psychic capacities to lure unwitting victims to its waiting maw. The beast knows the deepest secrets of men and probes their mind to create an image of what they desire the most. For some it is a matter of finally gulping down thirst quenching water. For others it might be a treasure hoarde worthy of a king. The mirage beast knows...it knows and it lies in wait.

    That passed through my mind as well. It was the only real life "sand swimmer" that I could think of.

    C.O.W. - #054: Sand Hunter
    concept:
    DANDUNE CHACK (Farsi for "tooth of the sand")
    These huge creatures live in the large equitorial deserts of New Persia, a planet circling around Zuben-el-Akrab (scorpio's scissor).
    They hunt their prey by waiting in the sand for some victims appearance.
    Their body is very adapted to the desert's live so some body appendages change into special formed shapes
    1. The upper limbs change into fins with leather like skin
    the lower limbs seem to disappear from the outward appearence,
    actually scientis believe that the DANDUNE CHACK 's ancients had
    2 legs shaped like the arms in the past,which grew together and form
    it's fluke like tail
    2. The fur is reduced to a tight mane on the DANDUNE CHACK 's back.
    The hairs can racognize smallest shocks in the sand when the DANDUNE
    CHACK lays deeper in the sand waiting for some victim stepping around.
    3. The two antennaes in the neck are snorkels for the time the DANDUNE
    CHACK is waiting for it's victim coming around.
    4. The eyelids are very thick and protect the eye against sand and sunshine.
    Some of the younger ones are even not able to open their eyes because
    they don't really need them.
    5. The nasal cavity is placed on the head to get a mantle of air around the
    body for swimming through the sand at low friction.

    Sand Hunter

    On the third desert moon of the Planet Rastchekka, these Sand Hunters prow on top of cool roocks and dig with their tube like tongues into the shallow sand, where their prey live. Their tongues also contain a sharp tooth that projects into their fuzzy prey, who bunker underneath the sand. They feed at night, and sleep under the sand during the day, to avoid the hot waves of the sun.

    C.O.W. - #054: Sand Hunter

    Bone Jackal
    edit - 7/27/06 (I kept hating the previous drawing I'd post, and restart.. this is the 3rd and final attempt)

    Through burying itself in the sand, the bone jackal's protrusions and armor plating create the illusion that it is nothing more than a creature's skeleton.
    This deception allows for prey to pass within striking distance, such as the delicious dune bunny. The Bonejackal can remain concealed for up to several days, using a pair of secondary nostrils located in the false "eye sockets" of its head protrusion.
