Nature could...take humans for instance: beleive me our ancesters were far fitter than we are...they were more resistant, tolerant to sickness and linving in hard conditions. Nowadays were so used to comfort that some part of our polpulation encounters important weight problems...(ok genetics plays in two but still...)...impossible to now if in the near future humans will or will not have to suffer of severe motor malfunctions...this specie could be rather ancient (and old 'caus evolution's needed) and keen on lazyness...after a time evolution twisted their body in a weard way (endin up with those weird rear paws...incapacitation the whole specie and progressively forcing them to adopt these way of locomotion, when they really need to move...only problem in this interpretation is the creature is very strong...probabley to try and cope with the resulting genetic deformation inherited for ages...
:mwahaha: I'm nutts.

Sure about nature not allowing useless creatures?? How's about the musquito then?? Or leaches?? Or flees and ticks?? Only purpose they have is to suck blood and be annoying..... How does that help? Okay, so this doesn't look very usefull either, but it sure looks good!

Hahaha! Yes, indeed! That's a fun movie! Yes yes, I know, I'm 24 years old now, but I don't care! I like that movie. As much as I like LEGO... And all kinds of other stuff people don't really expect from me.

lo primero que pense en cuanto lo vi , fue en dolor de espalda, jeje.
la unica razon que veo para que camine asi es para no rasparse las manos. Pero como es este negocio no importa, lo que importa es que se vea chido :D

The tail looks like a cow, its knees point backwards, it has hooves and fingers, and is hexapodal. Nicely muscled with pale green fur and a mane, but with an evil little face. I really hope that nature would never allow it, lol. But you never know.

Very cool, but I thought a centaur was horse-bottom, human-top? Like, horse legs and body and tail, human chest, head, and arms?

you are MAD. thats like some really strange mixture between a lion, abe, human, and a grasshopper...

if he moves 'normally', without the wheel thingie, does he move on all six or on his hind legs? as far as i can tell he'd crawl on all six..

:iconaxelmedellin:
AxelMedellin Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
That's the problem... this is not a guy who could easily move without the wheels... I suposse they spent a lot of time hanging from trees before the pretty chariots arrived...
