Pseudoraptor by Abiogenisis Pseudoraptor by Abiogenisis
(Updated from older version)

This creature evolved from the same stock as the Birrin [link]

The Pseudoraptor lives on open plains, hunting the grazing creatures that feed on the tough mats of lichen-like creeping plants that cover the surface. Able to tackle a wide range of prey, the Pseudoraptor can bring down much larger animals than itself by latching onto their hides with six re-curved claws at the tips of its four arms. The stalked eyes can retract or in the case of the upper eye fold back so as to avoid damage when fighting or hunting, while the hearing and scent antennae are much reduced and are kept in a protective pouch on each side of the neck.

Truly beautiful design and execution. I stared at this and the variant for quite some time and I really can't decide which I prefer. Amazing.

Maybe it could be a male thing, to impress the more sensibly coloured ladies.

Looks like a mutant, semi-cyborg ostrich (laughs!) but cool, really good.
Birrin is your planet, eh....? I don't like to create intelligent life on any worlds, cuz I know dat they'll soon end up like dear little old Earth
