All hail the Hypnotoad.
Turpis Vegrandis Noctis
The Lurnuk is an intriguing creature. It is not really a hunter yet it stalks its prey, going largely unnoticed. They sneak up on their victim and when they catch their glance they use their large eyes to slowly hypnotize the prey. Once the prey are under the spell the Lurnuk use their tail to spit out an anesthesic gass to knock out the hapless victim. Depending on their moood, they might also use their spiked tail to knock out prey. They proceed to eat their catch, usually when it's still alive.

The Tanzanian Eggbite
Is an unnoticed insect, first discovered in June 2006 by a deaf scientist in Arusha. This critter uses the sound of it’s wings to hypnotize any creature responding to sound, this is a natural stealth system. This insect utilizes it’s prey to lay eggs (through the “mouth”, helped by the “Needle Horns” as insertion tool, most uncommon) directly under the skin of the chosen victim, without the latter being conscious of it. If his “wing-trick” doesn’t work, it can still use the venom stored in the sting, to anaesthetise the prey.

The Truncal Hypno-Trap of the Amazon Basin
Prominent resonator disks at the front of this monster's shell form the eyes of a tribal mask illusion. A hypnotic brain wave then generates an artificial devotion so steadfast that any beast will offer itself up for sacrifice. Its vine-tentacles produce hallucinogenic polyps that look like berries and compound hypnotic control when ingested. After the hypnosis is in full effect, the creature's real head will stop posing as a tree root and begin to feed. The commanding effect of the hypnosis is so powerful that victims rejoice in the consumption of their own flesh.

Sounds cool. A good chance to do some very colorful and ornate creatures, perhaps. Funny, I just recently got an assignment to do a hypnotizing creature.
I just got the strange intuition that JakkaS is going to floor is with something classic this week.
You know who needs to participate in this round? Ninth.

The East Indian blind laternfish lulls in its prey by slowly waving its hypnotic light back and forth, closer and closer until the smaller fish is close enough to be chewed in half and swallowed in pieces.

I immediately thought of hypno-toad for this one, lawl.
there is nothing humanoid on his creature...your creature is the one on the right, right?Originally Posted by MoaiSerious or not, humanoid or not, I'm digging that background, Wizo. I hope you incorporate it into your real entry.
Yup, my bad... I had a kind of E.T creature before.
The new creature is looking good, by the way. And I'm happy to see that you used that multi-line brush that I liked from your previous WIP.
marak24- I don't know who you are or where you came from, but that creature is looking good! There are some problems, though. For the fishs' fins, you used a lot of small brushstrokes, so instead of looking like membranes between support spines, they look like hair. The smaller fish's body is a bit too narrow and ribbonlike, I think. Other than that, nice job.
I've been hanging around a bit, but I've finally decided to register and enter a creature. I'm gonna edit it a lot but I guess I might as well get the WIP out there...
Deep-Sea Barbeled Octopus (WIP)
A deep-sea octopus that uses bioluminescent barbels on the ends of its eight legs to hynoptize fish into its beak.

It's the first time I write here so nice to meet you! This is my contribution to the threat. Hope you like it, and hope to receive a lot of crits
The best-known Narb species are the Black Narb and the Brown Narb norvegicus. The group is generally known as the Old World Narbs or true Narbs, and originated in Titan. Narbs are bigger than most of their relatives. The common term "RB" is also used in the names of other big brain controllers which are not true Narbs.
To be a victim of a narb can be very dangerous. Taking mental contact with a narb for more than 30 minutes always produce serious after-effects (dementia, paranoia, schizophrenia...) Fortunately narbs secrete a particular smell that helps its detection. Probably a human being attacked by a veteran narb coldn't scape from its brain hypnotising power and suffer a brain deadh in a few hours.

Fozzy- No apology necessary. Sorry if my response sounded a little irritable.
Caligned- Welcome to CA!
cavarrot- You too, welcome to CA. Nice picture. The use of terms like "Old World" and "True" in your description gives it an air of authenticity.
Joey-b- At first I was liking the gnome, but now I like the snail. Having a ring of hypnotized snails would be quite humorous, I think.
Update 3 (Final)
Said to be the wisest race in the land of Hu-Huffle, wiser even than the ancient Speaking Trees, a G'nuru is a mysterious and contradictory creature. It has great wisdom, yet it never speaks. It has wings, yet cannot fly. It has opposable thumbs, yet it never thumb-wrestles or needs to turn a doorknob. It spends its days ambling solemnly across the blue hills of Hu-Huffle, searching for its favorite source of food: the fuzzworm.
Fuzzworms live in great knobby hives, and retreat into their burrows much too quickly for any creature to grab them. Any creature, except the G'nuru. When it discovers a fuzzworm hive, it whistles an eerie melodie and taps its three-clawed feet in a compelling rhythm. The fuzzworms are intrigued by the sound, and peek out of their burrows. The G'nuru then spreads its wings to display its brilliant, eye-like wing markings. It waves its wings sublty and moves slowly from side to side. The combination of the rhythms and subtle movements send the simple-minded fuzzworms into a deep trance, so they do not retreat when the G'nuru approaches to feed. After eating, the G'nuru utters a long, complex belch and moves on. Some attempt to interpret these belches and learn from the G'nuru's wisdom.
