    Swan Mantid

    C.O.W. - #059: Creek Crawler
    "Patience... for the Jedi it is time to eat as well...."

    Upon reaching Dagobah, Yoda realized that certain habits he learned to cherish had to change. Such was the way of the Force. His rations ran out, and there was little edible vegetation native to Dagobah. Yoda understood that in order to survive the many years of exile, waiting for the son of Anakin to grow up and join him on Dagobah, Yoda would have to forgo his strict vegetarian diet and become an omnivore. He did not mourn those creatures he captured and ate, for those that pass on from this life become one with the Force. But, he did have certain rules of engagement with respect to hunting and capturing food. Yoda only allowed himself to capture and eat small predators that were, themselves, caught in the act of catching prey. Yoda felt this honored the circle of life that was the Force and in the process saved a life more vulnerable than the one he had to take in order to eat. Yoda was particularily fond of Dagobah's Sawn Mantid, an amphibious crustacean that was very swift and very beautiful to watch in action. The Swan Mantid could make itself so still and move so quickly in its strike for swamp minnows, capturing one tested even the reflexes of a master Jedi. However, Yoda was never embarrassed to admit to himself that more than a few Swan Mantids had escaped his grasp...for that too was the way of the Force.

    Damn, can't beat the man in the mirror

    Final:
    C.O.W. - #059: Creek Crawler

    Sombrazul
    (puteulanus phasmatis ingredior)

    These majestic beasts roam the little creeks that surround the amazone river deep inside the rainforests of Brazil. They are extremely shy and have rarely been encounterd by humans. The native indians of the area regard them as direct descendants from god, and worship them by bringing them offers. Theyre name stems from the portuguese translation for blue shadow. Because of their shy nature people only see a blue shadow moving through the woods. They are also called blue spirit or blue ghost by the natives.

    The Sombrazul feeds mainly on fish and prefers to live close to small creeks. They use their long limbs to wade through the undeep waters and hunt for fish. The Sombrazuls have no natural enemies. Their skin is covered with a highly poisonous slimy coating that protects them from harm. Their brightly colored skin is a warning for predators and these colors are also used in the mating rituals. The skin that hangs between their long legs is their main tool in attracting a mate. The Sombrazul with the most flamboyant skin decoration will be most succesfull in reproduction.

    EDIT FINAL:

    C.O.W. - #059: Creek Crawler

    Description:

    A fat lazy creature living near creeks. It spend most of it's time sleeping. While awake they go out looking for food or they take a walk. They mainly eat plants growing only at creeks. Sometimes they accidentally happened to catch a fish during their walk, that's the most awesome food they can think off.

    When defending against predators. They use their shell to guard, waiting for an great opportunity. They'll quickly roll over their predator once they have the chance. Because of his large body, the predator will get crushed.

    Wooo Hoooo! I'm in early.

    I really shouldn't participate this week because of the other projects I'm neglecting. I'll try my best to stay out of this.

    Another wide open topic full of possibilities. I think I'll have to give this one a shot as well.
