Another aquatic predator by Exobio Another aquatic predator by Exobio
"Bignath" (two jaws)

This predator is an ambush predator that often lays in wait at the bottom of mangroves or other shallow bodies of water much like a crocodilian. The tendrils are allowed to drift in the current completely exposed, the extra long highly sensitive hairs pick up any movement from prey and the pores detect the electrical current. Armed with these "super sensors" the animal has a nearly perfect kill percentage, save for the few exceptionally quick morsels. Needless to say, these predators would take an unsuspecting Gapuri swimmer without hesitation. They would be a satisfying meal for a good week or so.

I love their design, the tail and how it connects to the back flippers.
The texture of the Bignath seems soft and slimy, lke a dolphin. :)

Thank you! I imagined them being very dolphin-like in texture.

WOW! Amazing and imaginative, as always!

You and a bunch of other speculative biology artists need to get together and recreate the Jaws movie cover (The swimmer with the huge shark below) with your primary sapient and one of the aquatic predators of that world instead of the human swimmer and the shark below it xD

That would be sooooooooo cool. Totally try to get Abiogenesis to do it too, and... hmm... I'm thinking.... Any other speculative artists you know I suppose!

Sorry I'm braindead, all I can think of is you and Abiogenesis when it comes to speculative artists, I'm sure I know at least two more xD
