Malleiotholus by Hyrotrioskjan Malleiotholus by Hyrotrioskjan
Malleiotholus is a strange pachytholid with an hammer like skull, a long tail for defense and jaws which are perfect to skratch small plants from the ground. Different to other pachytholids These animals aren't living in herds but are mostly solitary, during the mating season they come together and the males begin to grow These Long feathers/fan like structures which they use to impress the females.



(Some will maybe recognize the inspiration for this: yes, it's the silvanian version of Nigersaurus)

Females live on the upper levels, males on the lower

Fascinating. What do these guys eat? Is there a grass analogue on your planet?
