Behind the Scenes


The cryptile is an agamid lizard 5 million years in the future, and is about 18 inches long.

OverviewEdit

It inhabits the salt flats of the dry bed of the Mediterranean Sea. It runs on two legs, minimizing its contact with the hot salt. Its tail is elongated to balance such an agile gait. It has a large net-like frill around its neck, reinforced with ribs of cartilage. The frill is full of holes and covered in a waxy adhesive. The cryptile eats brine flies, using its net-like frill to catch flies, and licking them off with its tongue. Both sexes have an extra crest atop the head, used for display and communication. The only time a cryptile leaves the salt flats is to lay eggs among the limestone plateaus, where it has problems keeping its eggs from being eaten by grykens and scrofas. When the eggs hatch, the young instinctively migrate back to the salt flats.
