Strange and exotic creatures are a mainstay of any good fantasy story. Sadly, this is an area I need to work harder on.
I even have a critique partner that told me she was disappointed with the lack of good fantasy critters. I’ve already detailed the fluff-skitter, which is one of my first real attempts at fleshing out one of the creatures in Velyrum. I have also mentioned in passing root-bats, as well as their larva, and a leaf serpent. I don’t know what that one is either. Finally, an unnamed creature that lives in the elven forest with hooked feet, allowing it to run on either the top or the bottom of branches and vines.
Beyond that, I guess I need work. What are some of the exotic creatures you’ve created?
