Another image from that hypothetical Sentient 39 encyclopedia. This is one of those species I’ve never gotten around to naming. It comes from a biosphere where plants and animals have developed a direct symbiotic relationship. Most animals species have plants that grow directly out of their bodies. The plants act as part of their digestive system. The plant is also part of the animal’s reproductive system (as the animal is part of the plant’s). The creature depicted here is a member of the “dominant” species of the world, that is, it’s a civilization builder.
