Latulabium by Hyrotrioskjan Latulabium by Hyrotrioskjan
On day six you get a first look at a large group of the Cuspipoda: the Octaptera. Their ancestors were silmilar to animals like Herbaoculus hyrotrioskjan.deviantart.com/a… but these animals evolove in an much higher altitude. Their 8 main legs become flat and aerodynamic and they learn to glide. Their secondary legs become more and more important for the taking of branches. Finally the muscles around their primary legs become much stronger and moved partly inwards.

Latilabium angularis is a typical, middle sized Octoptera, unspecialized, fast flying and very common from the shores of Xibalba to the highest leaves of the Mundodendralis tree giants

Oh cool! You're really skilled then, watercolors tend to smudge alot and overflow, but you use them perfectly!

Amazing looking. I couldn't help but think of the flying machines from Howl's moving castle once I seen this. www.google.com/imgres?sa=X&esp… Although I am sure they don't move the same way.
