Hexapus Giganticus. The Giant Hexapus. This is my entry for the 2 Phase contest at Bionicle: A New Beginning Group
About this creation
Hexapus Giganticus. The Giant Hexapus. One of the many deep sea creatures to be found on Aqua Magna, feared by many, even worshipped by certain water tribes. This particular cephalopod measures approximately 380 ft (115.8m) in length from the tip of the head to the longest tentacle.
A front view detailing the hexapus's reach and flexiblity with it's tentacles.
A side view showing various points along it's body that is covered in lightweight, yet strong protodermis.
A close up of the head details, showing spined fins, spikes and various sharp adornments over the head, giving the notion that the hexapus could use itself as a high speed battering ram. The ominous glowing eyes are capable of 170 degree vision on either side, with a blind spot along it's dorsal section.
The tentacles themselves, 2 pairs with razor sharp protodermis hardened blades and a pair with small pincer like appendages which most among the scientific community consider are used for grasping at prey, as the flexibility in the tips of the tentacles had lost in favour of more solid means of defense against other deep sea creatures.
An unfortunate Human diver has been snared during this photoshoot! Looks like it's feeding time...
Om nom nom. The mouth of the beast, a large beak like apparatus used for cracking open larger shelled creatures, the diver's equipment is easily cleft and consumed. Burp!
