The large Titanustriped are deemed true tripeds, 2 forelimbs and a fused mono hind leg. These ambush hunters are powerful flyers with massive hunting grounds. The flock of Emerald fauxtripeds would be little more than a snack for the Titanustriped. Emerald fauxtripeds are considered “false tripeds” as their hind legs are only fused at the ankle. A membrane connects the legs, which aid in flight.

While the 2 species look really similar the sheer difference in size and the nature of their limbs is really making wonders at setting them apart.

But how is the Titanustriped able to fly when he is so big, and apparently heavy? hollowed bones? inner gas chambers? a lower gravity? a pull force in the atmosphere? all of those combines? or maybe something else?

Great design nevertheless, tripeds are always great to see.


vinsight responds:

thank you! Its a mixture of a lower gravity planet as well as inner gas chambers, like you stated. This are massive guys or sure so they need a little extra help to get them in the air. They are also more gliders than truly flyers, relying on thermal bands in the atmosphere to also aid in flight.
