the aer aequoreus pinophylax is of the decapod crustaceans group that started to their own branch 60 thousand years ago, and is commonly called the Tukan Air Crab; like all Air Crabs it has tree very expandable organs hidden under the shell that it can blow up with very hot air and thus lift like balloons into the sky. What sets apart the Tukan Air Crab from their other flying cousins is their evolved legs. Their flat very agile legs work like fins and besides being excellent swimmers they use them to paddle in the air, and control their air dives. Where their cousins and ancestors flew to travel and spread their eggs through the air, the Tukan Air Crab can also use their legs to dive for food, mostly fish and sea birds, but the rare rabbit & rat have been found during autopsy; but also for their mating ritual, where the males will do advanced air acrobatics to win his spouse.
I'll post my comments later.
