Speculative biology is simultaneously a science and form of art in which one speculates on the possibilities of life and evolution. What could the world look like if dinosaurs had never gone extinct? What could alien lifeforms look like? What kinds of plants and animals might exist in the far future? These questions and more are tackled by speculative biologists, and the Speculative Evolution welcomes all relevant ideas, inquiries, and world-building projects alike. With a member base comprising users from across the world, our community is the largest and longest-running place of gathering for speculative biologists on the web.

The last dream creature I drew was not /nearly/ alien enough for my tastes.
Spoiler: click to toggle

It was an interesting dream, at least. It was a subject in an intergalactic zoo, the last of it's kind. It's planet was dying, and as they grabbed species to make a massive artificial environment to preserve what life forms they could, they only got one of whatever he was.

Yep.

But I did have a dream a few months ago that involved a dazzling, confusing array of creatures. They were like massive crabs, all heavy, shuffling limbs and jointed armor with stalk eyes, but they were vertebrates (I recall poking around the skeleton of one of them) and their armor was covered with long, flattened, iridescent filaments that spread and twitched like feathers. They came in all varieties, some were actually normal-crab sized, some were small and had delicate wings they flew on, most I saw were elephant-sized and glorious.

It pretty much is. It's like a slinky, sexier predator. Less humanoid, too. But I guess it was okay, for being a huge obligate carnivore.

Why yes, it was one of those dream.
