Description

Species Description: A wild-by-nature hybrid species that was created through a strange evolutionary strain of cactus on a distant planet in an unknown galaxy. Said strain of cactus "reproduced" by injecting it's DNA into other organism's cells through it's spines. The cells in the host organism would then be hijacked and transformed into a cactus. The Cacticus Wyvernus, however, managed to resist the complete transformation, but not without being completely encased in a thick layer of fully functional cactus hide. As a result, the species can breathe both aerobically and use photosynthesis in order to gain energy. In fact, the two systems work together beautifully, as the waste gasses can be used again and again in each of the processes.

The Cacticus Wyvernus have long, thick arms, with club shaped, finger-like ends. Their claws measure up to a 20" in length. Their legs are trunk-like and highly strong and durable, resulting in surprisingly high mobility and speed. The wings span up to twenty feet, and the skin that composes the wings has thousands of spines on them. Their jaws are extremely powerful, but they still retain their original teeth, which measure 8 inches in length and are razor sharp. Their tails contain a very large spearhead-like shape at the end, which can be used to impale large prey or even flatten smaller prey.

The Cacticus Wyvernus have a profound sense of temperature sensitivity, if something is even a degree above preference, active measures will be taken to cool the creature down. Sight is average, hearing is just below excellent; their range of hearing far exceeds that of humans, and even the slightest disturbances can be magnified by the spines on the hide near the ears, resulting them in being heard everywhere. If things get too loud, the Cacticus Wyvernus can retract their spines to reduce or nullify magnification. However, it's sense of feeling has been drastically reduced, which is a double edged sword. Less pain comes to the creature, but soft ground or traps cannot be detected.

Height: 12' 9"
Weight: 1,394 lbs

Abilities:

Flight

Needle Barrage- The creature shoots some or all of it's spines at high velocities, which can be regrown during battle.

Water Excretion- The creature uses part of it's water reserves to cool itself down, or to douse fires.

Ferocious Roar- Can paralyze an opponent in fear momentarily if they lack confidence or are surprised by the roar.

Personality

Being one of the strongest Cacticus Wyvernus alive, Saguaro has a rather large ego when in front of his peers. With a strong sense of survival, to be finished later yeah. ;D

So begins...
