The beast has adapted to wade in the water and hunt small crustaceans and fish. Its wings still boast an eye facade and strangely specialized feathers for threat and sexual display, but do not support flight.
The beast has elongated and become more specialized for burrowing. Its mane is becoming proper fur now and its dorsal spines have also been covered in dermis and fur.
Took reference from moles, diplocaulus, sloths, and assorted lizards for this guy.
Someone recently took the first thirty beasts and made a video slideshow of them! It’s really neat to see them in order. And keep an eye on the Exquisite Beast tumblr tag, there are a bunch of really fantastic inspired projects going on over there!
Woa, the beast has turned into a dinosaur! Its mouth has become more specialized for an herbivorous lifestyle, and its exoskeleton has been covered by a thick dermis. Its carapace has receded somewhat and is now edged with a fine fur to prevent chafing, somewhat similar to the shell of an armadillo.
