Animaris Excelsus

Evolutionary Highlight: Wheel mechanism

Description: This beest is now considered a fossil. When it was alive, Animaris Excelsus could exert a force a hundred times its weight. Jansen has described it as "brains, wind-tank stomach, winch structure, and hammer, everything driven by a wheel mechanism" and calls it "the tall one" (it's about 8 feet tall).
