Non-Humanoid Contest Entry: Darettu

Hey people! I recently joined another minor contest, Mudslide's Non-Humanoid Contest. So, I decided to give it a go, and here is my entry. :D
About this creation
Here's a link to the contest.



Here is the Darettu.
Darettu are large burrowing Rahi from Bota Magna.


They have powerful legs for pushing around rocks and stuff.


They are hard to kill because of their thick carapaces.
But despite their fearsome appearances, Darettu are docile creatures, only attacking small Rahi for prey.


Darettu have a poor sense of sight, despite having four eyes. They mostly rely on smell, as evidenced by their four large nostrils.


They have strong forelegs for digging.


Darettu have two small clawed arms on their underbellies. These arms can move objects and grab prey while the other four legs are walking or digging.


A random Onu-Matoran is wandering around.
When suddenly...


*slam*
Matoran: AAH!
Darettu: Wuhk urk! Wuhk nuh nuh! (Play, nice person? Play with me?)


Matoran: I'm outta here!
Darettu: Urk wuk... (Goodbye, friend.)



So that's it.
This was built in about twenty minutes, not my best work, but oh well. :)
Good luck to the other participants!

Quoting Chopperskull Jon That's awesome and well planned out. The moc fits the description you gave it. I really like the unique look, especially the face.
Thank you! The story was an afterthought, but I think it does go nicely with the Daratteu. :)

Quoting Lego Obsessionist Nice parts usage for the claws!
Thank you! Let me tell you, those cuffs are really useful- I have used them as greebles on Galaxus and armor on Avillo, as well as claws on a Toxic Reapa upgrade.
Quoting Daniel Janči WOW!!! His head is amazing.
Thanks!

Quoting Kyle Peckham And that's your tablescrap? Show me a failed project, it'll blow our minds too! The head is great, and the back legs are just as awesome! It would take me longer than 20 minutes to build that! Great job! - KP
Thank you! I don't have any failed projects assembled at the moment, but I might rebuild some from a long time ago.

Thanks Cody! I just sort of started attaching pieces together for a Matoran torso, then realized it looked like an animalistic head.
