Created for the Jim Henson Creature Challenge for the Dark Crystal Netflix Series.
Anatomy was designed to cross a ground bird (like an Ostrich or Emu) with a small primate. Long ear tendrils provide additional balance while ground running (plus expression). Feet, hands, legs, and arms were designed to be used like a primate. Providing this bird with the ability to climb, swing, while still having the option to run on the ground.
