Well, does anyone have any other Ideas for Flora or Fauna?

I have two:

Giant Crowhawk: Massive flying descendants of Crows, these massive predatory birds reach sizes around that of the extinct Andean Condor, with wings stretching out to over fourteen feet. These massive birds of prey resemble giant, black, Hawks or Falcons with pitch black beaks, skin, feathers, gleaming black talons, and piercing amber eyes. In males, the two outer most tail feathers are elongated to three feet long and a bright silver, while females lack these extra-long tail feathers. However, only strong, healthy males grow these feathers. During mating season, male Giant Crowhawks will perform deadly aerial battles to gain the favor of females. When mated, Giant Crowhawks pair for life, and begin to build nests, often high atop cliffs.Giant Crowhawk eggs have a gestation period of seven to eight months, during this time, the female is unable to fly, causing the male to have to hunt and catch food for her. Hatching takes five to ten weeks after the eggs are laid. Out of all species of known Crowhawks, the Giant Crowhawk has the longest life-span of any of them, living for over thirty years, mating and laying eggs every two years. This is the reason for their populations to be so high, with food so difficult to find in the temperate latitudes.

Butter Trap: Butter Traps are mostly insectivorous descendants of Butter Cups that live in the temperate latitudes, they feed by secreting a sweet, buttery smelling fluid out of their stamen onto their petals, enticing insects to land and feed on the sweet juices. But when an insect or other small animal lands on the plant's three inch, golden petals, the flower snaps shut, and locks it's petals together before secreting digestive enzymes, and absorbing it's prey. Be careful not to inhale too strongly when smelling this flower, or you might lose part of your nose, as the flower's defense mechanism is to spray it's digestive enzymes out of the stamen at the attacker.

I think the problem is everyone here has school and/or work and thus has not been able to spend much time on this forum. I am sure it will pick up in a month or two and then people will give you ideas :D

Well, what are your opinions on the species I devised myself?

Although, that's nothing compared to what I can do with Cetaceans, Reptiles, and Invertebrates.

I've got quite the line-up for that kind of thing.

Oh, I can come up with many things.

The Buttercup? That's nothing. I can mutate a creature so much, it doesn't resemble it's ancestors in the slightest.

I am quite good at what I do.

Well, then lets see! Also, we haven't really talked about what the climate of Terra Aliis would be like. I wonder what that would be like?

That, all depends on Atmospheric conditions, whether or not the Ice caps have melted, as well as the geography and terrain of New Pangaea.

I'd think that there would be some polar ice caps left on the north and south of Pangaea. Most of the land mass would be desert, unless a recent ice age left behind a bunch of lakes with fresh water, in which case, there would be an interesting mix of lush areas and desert areas.

Seeing as I'm not a big fan of deserts, let's go with that.

I think he was referring to the people who had contributed previously. It's kind of a shame that this project died, it was going pretty well. Aiosan was on earlier today though, so I hope he revives it.

The problem with this project is that some of the creatures are way too conservative for the time period. Were talking 200 million years here not fifty. Just think about how different the fauna is now compared to the early jurassic...
