It's a spider with two tails!

Because the world was in need of just that little bit more spider.

Spider Wasp

If you're an arachnophobe, you might like to think of this as "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". Unless you also hate wasps. If you suffer from spheksophobia be aware that many Spider Wasps are scarier than your average wasp and the enemy of your enemy is a super-powerful enemy.

South American Leaffish

It's a carnivorous leaf! The vegetables have finally had enough and are seeking revenge against us all! Especially vegetarians. Those juice-thirsty vegetarians.

Flying Dragon

*GASP* It's a dragon! A mighty, fire-breathing dragon of yore with teeth like daggers and eyes like embers. Look at his fearsome claws, his lashing tail, his majestically curved neck. He's spreading his majestic wings like a scaly but also majestic banner of unearthly power. Watch him take to the air with majestic flaps of the aforementioned majestic wings. I've never seen a majestic flap before but it's oh so very majestic.

It's those magnificent Wingfoots again! Or "Pteropods" if you insist on being all fancy and, you know, accurate.

Neothyonidium magnum
Could it be? Could it really be? A Sea Cucumber that isn't crushingly unattractive and may even be sort of... pretty?
