There's not enough reptilian species, so I recently brought back and redesigned a species I made back when I was in middle school!
•Patlani means "to fly" in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs. These feathered, tree-dwelling lizards can flatten their bodies and use their unusual tails to glide back and forth from the tall trees they make their home.
•They are large lizards related to geckos, and are approximately the size of an average house cat. Their sticky paws help them stick to objects, and they have retractable fangs with a mild venom similar to a bee sting.
•Their feathers are bright and iridescent. They extend their mane as a courting ritual and as a way to discourage predators. All genders of Patlani have manes.
•Speaking of gender, Patlani have been known to change their sex depending on available mates. Because of their genderfluid nature, it is possible for any two Patlani to produce offspring.
•Nests are usually made up of three or four eggs, which both parents guard fiercely. Groups of several adult Patlani raising their clutches together have also been observed, with colonies of up to five different clutches per nest being taken care of by several mated pairs.
•Feel free to make your own! You can even make adopts, as long as proper credit is given and you link back to my profile (Kabber).
If you make your own, let me know! I'd love to see what you can make!
