Pseudoraptor Mk.2 by Abiogenisis Pseudoraptor Mk.2 by Abiogenisis
(This is an alternative version of the Pseudoraptor [link] incorporating the suggestions received when I submitted the previous 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.

I'm confused. If this evolved from the Birrin, then why does it seem more like an uncivilized animal?

It shares a common ancestor with the birrin, but did not evolve from them.

You know Birrin's could possibly exist? The universe is infinite and it's impossible for life to evolve on one single planet. A similar or maybe even exact race of Birrins are possibly guaranteed. Stephen Hawking is even saying that life could evolve on a gas giant. Anyway great drawing! Your aliens are so creative!

Unless there is something about the birrin that is impossible, perhaps ;)
