Filter Feeder by Abiogenisis Filter Feeder by Abiogenisis
This pencil image is visual development for my book project, and is a creature evolved from this body plan. [link]

This is a giant air breathing creature evolved from a land living ancestor. Water is gulped whale shark style from near the surface and squeezed into pouches in either side of the flattened head. Once the mouth is closed, the water is forced out a long slit on the top side of the head, passing a modified filtering mouth part which traps small animals. To breath, the creature nears the surface and extends a fleshy breathing tube from a small orifice on the right-hand side of the head.

just on a side note... is this one related to the blue "lio" one in any way? there seem to be some common features, as if they were at least distantly related ;-)

The pencil sketch one is actually the old design for the Sardu

It makes sense though, your native language is a world-spoken one, so you already have the priviledge. ;-)
