    I bet flying or swimming serpentine creatures are an obvious choice... sometimes obvious can be cool to, right? Right!

    Tingifissi
    Piscis Piscis Puteo Celer

    The Tingifissi is a creature that is very rarely seen. Very little is known about this beautiful yet mysterious sea animal. It is believed that it is one of the fastest creatures in the sea, though there are no definitive records to prove it. Marine biologists suspect that the Tingifissi uses an almost jet like propulsion system to achieve these high speeds. They also believe the creature uses it's huge dorsal fin mostly for stabilizing purposes. The Tingifissi's habitat is near the carribean, and it is believed the creature has a preference for clear water. On very rare occasions the Tingifissi are spotted skidding across the water, chasing eachother at breakneck speeds. From a distance they are often confused with jetski's. The world is waiting until one of this magnificient beasts can be more thoroughly studied.

    Not Quite Finalized

    C.O.W. - #064: No Legs, No Wings, Incredibly Fast

    It's not done yet though. Arrrrgh!

    In 1537, a young monk named Zhang Feng went on sabbatical in a remote Chinese mountain range. On his third day there, the thought he spotted a creature gliding amongst the mountain tops without the help of wings. Confused at what he saw, Zhang returned to his meditation to clear his mind. But when he opened his eyes again, the strange beast was still there! Upon returning to his monastary, he told everyone of the encounter. Laughed at and critisized for making up stories of dragons he was eventually forced out of the temple and lived the rest of his days in exile. The story of this animal was never spoken again.
    But in the 1980's a group of explorers on an expedition deep into the same mountains rediscovered this strange gliding creature. Due to its docile demeanor, they managed to capture one quite easily for testing. A quick visual inspection revealed the strange underside of this animal. Covered with fleshy nodules, each with a small iron pellet, its function eluded them until they brought it to the laborotory. As scientists examined its physiology, they discovered that it could carry an electrical charge and had the ability to control each charge to induvidual iron pellets. It was noted that the beast was able to levitate over any object that contained enough iron ore. The metre long creature appeared to use these mag-lev abilities to glide over the iron rich mountaintops! By calculating its size and amount of magnetic charge it could produce, they theorized that the animal could reach speads of 150km/h with ease though it has yet to be documented. While trying to come up with a name, they came across an old tale about a monk who went up to live in the mountains with the dragons, and it was decided to name it Zhang's Dragon in his memory.

    Welcome to CA, RedLever! Nice picture you have there. Some crits: I don't like how the water is lighter on either edge of the picture. The dirt floor needs some texture. The whole thing has a faintly fuzzy feel to it. Just polish it up a bit and you'll be fine.
    I'm pretty sure I left you with your balls...

    Anyway, the idea that's in my head is a large outer space creature that ejects chemicals for propulsion. A living rocket, if you will. Or maybe I'll take the week off. Yeah, right.

    Shhhiiiii.... I'm so hungry this round that the restrictions of the topic makes me wanna... (Oh, let's make a fancy speed-worm...dah!)

    Does the word legs include arms in any way, in english? And what is the difference? Some species seem to use their arms for walking... Does having arms mean that you also have at least a pair of legs? Does a hand mean that the limb automatically is an arm? What about tentacles ending in feet? If you always walk on your hands, how long does the arms remain arms?
