Creatures of New Thuringia
Today we make an expedition to the fantastic archipelago „New Thuringia“, located somewhere in the thick fogs of the Baltic Sea. The archipelago consists of the main island Frija, the smaller islands Fulla, Vara and Eira and a few more little, unnamed islands. (The names are from old german goddesses.)
There is a mystery around the archipelago. Cause on the islands live creatures related not just to animals from the near European countries, but to nearly all parts of the world. They have developed new species in this isolation. But, is the archipelago moving along the seas and oceans, or is there something bigger than that? Is it just imagination? Is it an experiment of an insane genius? Is it a lost project of the Nazis to create super creatures for biological warfare? Nobody knows…
Most of the animals live on the main island Frija. The weather is mild but very wet, comparable to Grait Britain. There are huge forests on this island, swamps, grasslands and a few mountains. Unfortunately I just can show you an extract of the creatures, there are a few more to go:
Teufelskroete (devil’s toad)
Baumegel (tree leech)
Sumpfschreiter (swamp strider).
Wanderkauz (wandering fogy)
Flusskönig (river king)
Etagenpilz (level mushroom)
Steinzecke (stone tik)
Kaisertapir (is there a need for translation?)
Nasenrochen (nose ray)
Prachtruecken (glory back)
Loewentitan (lion titan)
Schwindelschweif (fake tail)
Sorry, I’m not in the mood to give you some explanations to the single critters, just let your imagination flow. If you have questions I always will lend you my twelve ears!
Hope to see you again soon for more strange creatures!!!
