some more crazy real-life creatures.

first one is a horrible lamprey mouth, the second is some weird ancient shrimp thingy that they thought were extinct but have shown up again. researching lampreys will give you nightmares... horrible things

edit: added another page of weird parasitic creatures. i don't know what the hell they are.

wow, first post in over a month. i hope that doesn't happen again. it's been a pretty crazy few weeks, workin' on this star wars book.

no better way to find inspiration for a crazy creature than to look towards nature... there are animals prowling the ocean or lurking in plain sight, only visible with a microscope, that put any imaginary beast to shame.

the top image is a sea worm, and the bottom is an electron microscope view of spider's foot.
