Common Name: Sky-stars Average Height: 5' per limb Average Weight: 400lbs Usual Pelt Colour: Reds, yellows, and orange. General Appearance: These massive star-shaped creatures come in a variety of strange, exotic warm colors, with bumpy hides and huge jaws on their spongy, yellow undersides. The most noticeable thing most people ever notice is the massive shadows these creatures cast, with no apparent form of propulsion in the skies at all.
Habits: Found drifting on thermals, these giants of the skies fold their arms in to descend, and fold them out to float higher, diving down upon their prey, pinning them down with their massive weight. As per the starfish that they resemble, they then project their own digestive tract onto the creature, usually dead by crushing or asphyxiation, and digest it, aborbing the mass of the creature and somehow returning to the air-nobody has ever been able to work out exactly how this is achieved.
Mostly mysterious, very little else is known about these creatures, but it is suggested they return to the sea to mate, and if anyone sucsessfully captured one of these limb-regenerating creatures and dissected it, they could become immensely rich. Diet: Mostly omnivorous. Predators: None known. Niche: The skies above grasslands and plains. By Products: None known. Created by: GeneralDisaster
