rainbow ray by V4m2c4 rainbow ray by V4m2c4
Like many of us AVATAR has to be one of my favorite films ever. Love it, hate it, space Pocahontas or not, the creature concepts were astounding and I would surely kill, maim or destroy who ever I have to in order to have a chance to be part of that production team. WOW HARSH MUCH?! ;)
With that being said here is my speculative concepts to the next installment of the franchise.

The rainbow ray, not having any bone structure can virtually collapse/roll up into its light weight shell as a means of protection. Both males and Females produce the light weight shell but a female's shell will also house their eggs. A new shell will be produced throughout their lives as they will out grow them. Mainly feeding on microscopic prey they can be active hunters especially during the breeding season. The large orange organ houses vital organs, aid in detection of predator/prey and for sonar.

i'm really REALLY digging your stuff...I find your astrobiology to be more alien than barlowe in that you are less bounded by traditional terrestrial biology and get your inspiration from less-utilized (though altogether more strange and beautiful) forms of life (i.e. jellyfish, sea cucumbers, arthropods, fungus, etc))

the Rainbow Ray definitely invokes the aesthetic of certain species of sea cucumbers, perhaps one of the most beautiful and under-appreciated denizens of the deep.

These creatures are amazing! They remind me slightly of the "liquivore" creatures from a BBC documentary I once saw. Keep up the great work!!!
