Jon Sullivan organized this fossil? pure evil.
Not a nice thought, being systematically stripped of your flesh by those gnashers under the huge hood. Those outer ones are freakishly close to how i picture them aswell.
uncanny - just to show evolutionary design does throw out every conceivable possibility, at least once...
Not Jon Sullivan, Vaude - all his visualizations are between his ears, so maybe he's as sick as me.Spencer, it adds the trapped in darkness aspect to being slowly eaten alive.Jebel, there's not a monster I've invented that doesn't have a near equivalent on Earth. This is why it makes me laugh when critics occasionally say my monsters are a bit OTT.
These mouthparts are actually one of the most common sets around as they belong to most gastropods http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radula.I can just imagine the set that must have belonged to the house-sized snail on SpatterJay and to Larry Niven's frumious bandersnatch on Jinx.
