Sloth-ish thingy by imaginism Sloth-ish thingy by imaginism
A warm up painting from a few days ago. What is it? I don't know. Maybe you do. If you can tell me your own description of this creature is in 4 sentences or less, I'll post the best ones by the end of the day!

Bobby

Favorite description goes to :iconsuprkay:
Moss Weeden: Often heard of in old folk lore as creatures of magic and inspire many stories. Their diet consists of only plants and their fur absorbed the plant color. They can absorb energy from the sun too, the only known animal to go through photosynthesis. People refer to them as creatures of wisdom and spirituality. They are also known for sleeping in people's homes and growing mold in their attics.

This is a Naddenbrun, a small creature that uses it's green fur to camoflauge. It eats catterpillars in many different rainforests across the world, and it's somewhat nocturnal. It's closest relatives are sloths and koalas, each very distinct. It's sort of the missing link between koalas and sloths.

The Unvolant can't fly,
the Unvolant can't glide.
But, should you let the Unvolant wrap around your arm,
Then the Unvolant will cuddle up and sleep.

a fantastic creature you've made.

Uniphalangi Lonychidae (taken from a mix of the Latin words for One toed Sloth), or Lonychi for short. A omnivore, it eats fruits and leaves of the trees it resides. Its large bat like ears also allow for it to hear nearby insects, which it also consumes. Nocturnal, this creature is known to be most active after dusk.

Wrap-toed Aye-aye ( Involovopedes daubentonia).
A species of aye-aye with many similarities to sloths. Naturally rare, and due to loss of its specialized habitat, nearly extinct.
Unusual coat color as camouflage against predators. Feeds on insects and insect larvae.

Slossum - Growing up, slossums assume their environment's colour, taking on whichever aspect they need to blend in with. Once mature, slossums seek out their own special tree, to raise their own family (generally consisting of a cluster of two to five). When a female slossum picks a mate, it seeks one vastly different in colouration to her, so that if a predator chances upon them, they are either warded off by the strange colouring of the male slossum or attracted to it. As such, slossums have become rather rare, hunted for their beautiful fur.

The Slurrel (sloth-squirrel):
If the sloth can be compared to that feeling of waking up early with only two hours of sleep and a massive migraine of a hangover, the sluirrel would be its crack-smoking, Red Bull-blooded, four Four-Lokos and a pint of espresso drinking cousin. With the heart rate of a hummingbird (1400 bp), the reflexes of a mongoose, and the metabolism of a shrew, this jittery mammal does a fair amount with its day. The single tentacle-like claw on each hand allows the sluirrel to move faster as it swings through the trees, as well as allowing easy access to scoop worms, ants, and other insects out of tree limbs. However, much like an actual caffein binge, the energy levels of the slurrel goes from 110% to 0% in a second, leading many of these creatures to pass out midway through activities in a manner that would give that little narcoleptic dog on Youtube that you love so much a run for it's money.

The Viridian Paddle Sloth, native to upper canopy regions of outer ring forest planets, is a plant-based marsupial that never leaves the tree it was born in. It excels at camouflage, and is nearly invisible to most predators because it's movement is too slow to be detected. It's gaze is mesmerizing to creatures large and small, and is a formidable weapon in the search for food. It's gaze is so unforgiving, so unwavering, and so deadly that throughout the known universe, doing something futile or ridiculously dangerous is said to be "like getting into a staring contest with a Paddle Sloth".

After mammals went extinct. Cephalopods took the mammals place. There were a lot of biotopes to repopulate and this species chose the the tallest trees. Careful to not fall down into predator zone, they opted to move slow and steady.

He is a green koalasnail. One of the most relaxed creatures from the world of fiction. Intact he is so relaxed that even catching a Worm turns into a high speed chase for him.

Good?

Deep in the jungles of Trin-gula lives this mysterious yet fantastic creature. It's called a Ya-pon. It is a rare sight amongst the locals. Making this, it's first appearance to the general public. Wonderfully camouflaged, it feeds on bugs and larvae hidden in the trunk of these trees. It uses its universal limbs to place pressure on the trunks of the trees to obtain its meal.

This is Zeleno (lat. tardus viridi), which stands for "Green" in Croatian language.
Although it lives in forests of Panama, it was named by a Croatian explorer who first discovered it.
By the locals in Panama, however, it is popularly called "Ikwaokinyapippilele", after a demon of the night believed by the Cunas of Panama to cause headaches. They are shy and almost impossible to spot in the wild.
