Capsicivorasaurus
My first MOC - the capsicivorasaurus.
About this creation
The capsicivorasaurus or the pepron is a dinosaur and is a member of the infraorder Sauropoda. The name refers to his strict diet: capsicivora means Capsicum eater. Capsicum is a genus of plants from the nightshade family. The fruits of Capsicum plants are peppers. The pepron derives a lot of its energy and nutrient requirements from these plants. The English name for the animal refers to the word pepper of course...

Because peprons eat Capsicum plants a lot, their breath contains a lot of capsaicin. This is a chemical that can produce a strong burning sensation when it comes in contact with mucous membranes. Most mammals find this unpleasant; however, peprons are, obviously, unaffected. Their breath is a good defence mechanism.

Peprons have a red skin, this is because they absorb the main red-colouring compounds present in the Capsicum fruits.

Now you 'll ask yourself: "what is this pepron doing here?". Well, this pepron wanted to survive the mass extinction event 65 million years ago, so he came here for a while. A wise decision.

As you can see the animal has wing-like structures on both sides of its body. These structures were attached to the pepron's body by the person that is sitting upon it and are meant for steering this huge animal. The reason why these steering systems look like wings is because this person wanted to give the animal a dragon-like outlook. The man and the pepron know each other for a while. Obviously, this pepron is very friendly with humans... :



But sometimes it wants to be alone:

The temple on the background is a creation of
Sebeus. Nice!

Thank you... The pepron is an entirely fictional dinosaur, I just pretend it exists.

Ja, een beetje scientific. Van al dat Engels typen begint het in uw hoofd te geraken... 's Nog een goeie manier om mijn Engels wat bij te schaven. :)
