Thinking about naming this guy Vermasaurus
A mostly carnivorous Dinosaur that lived in the Cretaceous period
It feeds by ripping through the flesh of creatures using a combination of it’s tongue and teeth. Once inside the prey body the Vermasaur uses the teeth on it’s tongue to eviscerate and eat the organs of it’s prey using it’s powerful set of lungs to suck the organs right out of it’s prey. it seldom eats the flesh of it’s prey and instead just pulls the organs out of the body and swallows them and sometimes drinks the blood of it’s prey.
it can use a tube that runs through it’s tongue to drink liquids, like water since it’s mouth doesn’t allow for traditional drinking. the four jaws is a complicated mixture of tendons muscle and bone. most of the muscles used in the jaw are actually located in the face and neck, it also has muscles inside it’s jaw used to wiggle it’s teeth to allow it to dig into the flesh of it’s prey easier.
it’s been known to occasionally eat fruit and other plants for unknown reasons, it had difficult times chewing the plant matter.
If starved long enough the vermasaur will catch and eat entire small creatures and birds whole. the animals would often be very badly injured making it’s way through the sets of teeth, and would often live long enough to die in the vermasaurs stomach.
The vermasaur has a weak spine and has adapted by evolving an exoskeletal plate resembling that of a centipede, running all the way down to the the end of the tail.
on the end of it’s tail is a spike it uses to defend itself from creatures larger than it, it also uses it to stab through the neck of it’s prey when it catches them.
it was sharp claws it can use to tunnel and scratch prey.
it has very basic sense of smell and can identify creatures by scent in close radius, it’s eyes can see in the dark and light.
it has a very sharp sense of hearing.
the vermasaur often makes spends it’s whole life in the same territory until it dies or exhausts it’s food supply.
it lives inside caves or will dig it’s own tunnel to sleep in.
The Vermasaur is asexual and reproduces on it’s own, although it will only ever lay 1 - 4 eggs in it’s life time and only one at a time, and in a bizarre reproduction habit will only lay eggs when the Vermasaur comes in contact with one of it’s own and falls in love. it will spend the rest of it’s life with it’s mate despite not needing another one to reproduce.
During the incubation period of the egg the Vermasaur will dig a deep tunnel and live underground and defend it with it’s life.
