Boar Spider by KatePfeilschiefter Boar Spider by KatePfeilschiefter
Creature sketch for the Aerie. An omnivorous descendant of wyrms, called a boar spider by silly humans due to their piggy nature, extra limbs and multiple false eye spots. True dragons such as the flying hexapods like to eat them.

Will think of scientific name later.

insects or ''hexapods'' have six legs. spiders or ''arachnids'' have eight, so i do not undrestand why they call it boar spider?!
hexasuchus porcum, should it be called. hexa, as in hexapod or six. and suchus as a crocodile. and porcum as pig!
love it, i like the ammut look of it!

Technically, but humans have a bad track record for naming animals.
