Aukephale refsheet by Colubrine
Aukephale refsheet
A creature originally done for the creature contest going on over at Helpful Bear Productions!

DESCRIPTION:

This animal inhabits rocky island shores and cliffs and can be found basking on sunny days. Because the climate of its habitat is so unstable, it has evolved unique features that allow it to survive no matter the conditions.

During the warmer months, the Aukephale stays mostly on land, using the duck-billed portion of its jaw to rip tough, nutritious tubers off the rocks. Since the tubers grow in the darkness and moisture of cliffside caves, the Aukephale must hang its head over the edge of a cliff and into the openings to reach them. This often gives them the appearance of having no head, hence the name given to it by early sailors that used to pass by the islands (from the Greek aképhalos, or headless).

In winter, when the tubers retreat into their shells and vegetation is scarce, the Aukephale takes to the sea, preying on the fish and squid that live in the frigid depths.

The defining feature of the Aukephale is its versatile head and jaw that works perfectly both right side up and upside down!

Female Swampwalker by Colubrine
Female Swampwalker
Females of this species are large and heavy, travelling in herds and grazing on a variety of marsh greenery. They are blind but have an acute sense of movement and hearing. Their safety lies in their numbers, providing them with protection from the small number of natural predators they encounter.

During the mating season, glands on the underside of the tail start producing unfertilized eggs laced with a tough mucus, forming a slimy mass that the female carries around until she encounters a male.
