Living in a planet teeming with airborne food sometimes leads to extreme makeovers. Aeons ago this would have been a lopsided look-alike of a salamander with tentacles for jaws. Now its bucal appendages have their surface covered with a sticky non-volatile substance that acts as a conveyor belt for the captured food items and true to its designation it can be most oftenly found in high spots on the upwind side due to the larger quantity of food caught there.The eyes do little more than ensure sure footing and looking out for predators to which there is the obvious response of folding its feeding arms to enclose the soft body in an armor of spines.Rather random drawing that started as a collection of abstract lines.Wacom on Photoshop
