DINOSAUR EXCERPT

Here is a little excerpt from The Kaligen Experiment: Bestiary:

“The new Synapsids have earned the genus name of Lanxcoma or “Scale Hairs.” Unlike the original Synapsids, the creatures produced by the D-Mutagen are true hybrids between reptile and mammal. Like elephants, Lanxcomas have little hair, which helps carry heat away from their skin and prevent overheating. Their skin is scaly like a reptile’s, which gives them protection from the harsh elements of Kaligen Island. While they lay eggs like reptiles, Lanxcomas are warm-blooded animals that nurse their young with milk glands on their stomachs. Scent glands can be found on their snouts, which they use to mark their territory by wiping their glands on trees, rocks, or bushes. They even possess primitive inner ear bones that give them a more heightened sense of hearing than a pure reptile. Like true mammals, Lanxcomas are equipped with specialized teeth such as incisors, canines, and molars. With the bloodline of the original Synapsids extinct, the Lanxcomas may provide scientists with a scenario of how such creatures could have evolved if they had not died out.”
