Round 1, End of the Devonic
Winds of change go through Terra. You are the first of a kind. To leave the swamps below, and to lay your young far away from all water.
Hylomonous Velocitus (Biologicah)
Minor size growth - 5
Stronger muscles - 4
This strain of Hylomonous used the extra proteins in it’s diet to grow slightly in size. This has allowed for it to eat small newly hatched amphibians, thought it also makes it slightly more easier to sight and kill.
Longevity: 3 years
Appearance: A 24 centimeter lizard with a green pigment.
Status: LC (Least Concern)
Hylomonous Armoratus (Positive Tower)
Thicker Scales - 6 (SUPAH EVOLUTION!)
Better eyes - 1
This particular kind of Hylomonous has chosen to become a living armor over the generations. The small scales that covered it’s body have become dense and multilayered, allowing more heat to be kept in the colder times and proving useful against bites. In the other front, Armoratus has developed a better eye, feauturing a rectangular shape for a pupil. This has allowed it to better control the light coming in from the environment.
Appearance: A 20 centimeter lizard with a dark green pigment. It’s eyes have a strange, rectangular pupil. On touch, it’s skin feels hard.
Longevity: 4 years
Status: Least Concern
Hylomonous Arboreus (serialkiller)
Jumping Ability - 4
Clibming Ability - 6
A clad of Hylomonous who wandered far into the denser forests thousands of years ago, Arboreus has developed the necessary back leg structure to allow it to hop small distances. This is particularly useful to jump to prey, but the added stress on the back legs cause many Arboreus specimen to have their legs break before their life cycle ends, causing them to die off earlier.
Appearance: A 20 cm lizard with a green pigment. Its back legs are visibly bigger and more articulate than the front legs.
Longevity: 2.5 years
Status: Least Concern (-)
Hylomonous Dwarfattus (AgentTine)
Major size increase - 1 (Oops!)
Prehensile Tongue - 4 (Not your lucky day…)
Arguably the most different from it’s original form, Hylomonous Dwarfattus has dimished a lot. It is now easy prey for both amphibians, and bigger reptiles. The only good thing in all this is, it needs to consume a lot less food, thought the only thing it can seem to catch is flies. It is a dire time for this species.
Appearance: A 10 centimeter lizard with a light green pigment.
Longevity: 2 years
Status: Vulnerable (-)
Hylomonous Giganta (KikyGames)
Grow in size - 6 (SUPAH EVOLUTION!)
Become herbivorous - 6
On the opposite end of the scale we have Hylomonous Giganta, the roamer of the non dense forest. After generations of saving up it’s fat deposits, this species has effectively almost doubled it’s size, with the biggest specimen reaching 40 centimeters. Small lizards and amphibian cannot devour it alone, and do not attack in packs. There is virtually no predator to this lone roamer, and it preys mostly on Hylomonous Dwarfattus. With the bigger body, there is a whole bigger food need, thought it does not need to worry about the prey running away…yet.
Appearance: A 40cm lizard with a yellow-green pigmentation.
Longevity: 5 years
Status: Least Concern (Thriving)
I think twas a pretty good first round. Remember, next round, only one vote!
