Monsters on six legs by Hyrotrioskjan Monsters on six legs by Hyrotrioskjan
Two scutocerats from the lower branches regions of the Mundodendralis forest. Even if they look like six-legged rhinos or ceratopsids they are more like the antelopes of Silvanus. The low gravitiy give them a surprising agility.
These animals are known for living in small herds with 3 or 4 females and between 7 and 10 males; both genders have the impressive horns which are characteristic for the family but only the females use them for fighting each other. The female which wins the contest is now the first at the ladies' choice.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you
sorry
I'm am so scared of this stuff so I'm so sorry

These are invertebrates?

Mainly, but the rear end is supported by vertebrae similar structures.

So these animals are like hemichordates or cephalochordates? I think it's creative coming up with such a radical design nad such a radical planet, but is this vertebral column a calcium bone column or something else?

Sorry for the late answer, the comment was a bit buried :blush:
Yes they are indeed partly similar to hemichordates or cephalochordates.
The hard parts of the exoskeleton and the endoskeleton have are made by Ganoin, but the micro-structure is more similar to the cuticula of insects, over the ganoin-core of the exoskeleton comes a layer of tissue, similar to cartilage and finally a pigent-rich skin mostly based on Resilin.

Earthly materials existing on alien life forms, so this Resilin, must make them quite durable

Well, what do the biggest predators here look like? Similar?

The biggest predators are vertebrates, however they live aquatic.
But the biggest land animals are still pseudo-athropods and are relatives of the Pachytholids.

Those horns look positively deadly. Are they used for interspecific combat as well?

Yep, the only chance for predators is a ambush strategy.
