The Colliphant is a weird browser herbivore descendant of the azhdarchid pterosaurs that inhabits the forests of Indonesia during the Holocene in an alternative world where a mass extinctions occurred during mid-Cretaceous and not during the late. It is characterized by its long neck that comprises almost the whole body of the animal, reaching heights of up to 9 meters, with small but thick legs that keeps it erect. Are quite slow, always moving at a maximum speed of 10 km per hour, in huge herds of up to fifteen individuals.

Usually it gets water from the plants that eat.

Is kinda like between a sloth and a turtle, they dont move so much.

with their stubby legs i assume they dont move very quickly, also with this kind of metabolism... how does it defend itself against predators? or is it some island isolated species that doesnt have any?
anyways interesting! :)

It doesnt have predators, they are protected by the machines that created them.
Also thanks.

At first I couldn't see the head! XD I thought it was a worm with legs! I must say though that this is certainly an interesting take on the flightless pterosaur trope.

Looks hilarious.:D Very creative. Is the neck really so thick or part of it is just skin fold?

Is actually that thick by the muscles, is to support that huge head it have :)

Would this little body be able to bear all that weight?
Reply

In a way, the position of the legs allows to distribute better the weight of the head and neck
