Eh... I would maybe consider splurging on one if I wasn't so broke, but I think I'm gonna pass on this one as well. :derp:


Dinosaurs and pterosaurs are all archosaurs, but pterosaurs and other large reptiles such as the marine reptiles, ichthyosaurs, etc., all branched off earlier before true dinosaurs developed. So pterosaurs are VERY close cousins to the dinosaurs but dinosaurs were classically bipedal (quadrupedal dinosaurs like apatosaurus had bipedal dino ancestors) and also had a couple other unique features involving the limbs and pelvis. It's sometimes very difficult to tell early dinosaurs from some of the crocodile-like archosaurs (the family that eventually led to modern crocs and alligators) as some of them were also bipedal.

So anyways, long story short: pterosaurs developed from the large reptiles before the dinosaurs ever developed, but they were definitely more closely related to dinosaurs and modern birds than they were to the crocodile-like archosaurs.

3 Shard Silvan Yi Qi

This small green egg has wings that flap periodically.

Female /// Male
Young yi qi are born covered in fluffy down but quickly molt it for functional plumage. They learn to fly far quicker than any bird, their spindly wings able to hold them aloft mere days after they hatch. They remain within the flock, depending on a diligent crew of adults to bring them large grubs so they can grow. At the Keep, such grubs are hard to come by, and the hatchlings make due with larger amounts of regular caterpillars and beetle larvae. They're belligerent little creatures, apparently sharp, but unusually tricky to train. Having treats on hand with which to bribe them is widely thought to be the most effective way to get them to cooperate.

Female /// Male
An adult yi qi is a spectacular sight, with wings and plumage quite unlike any other creature. Some consider them to be a distant relative of dragons, but the researchers who work with them point out the similarities between their skeletons and those of the kalistavri. Like many feathered creatures, the females are duller in color so they can guard the eggs while remaining camouflaged. The female Silvan variety is especially well-suited to this, her brown and green feathers blending almost perfectly into the forest vegetation. Males grow spectacular tail plumage and purple crests during the breeding season, and will compete with others in their flock in elaborate, high-speed aerial acrobatics.

5 Shard Razan Yi Qi

Like many feathered creatures, the females are duller in color so they can guard the eggs while remaining camouflaged. This may seem a bit odd for the Razan variety, which is bright blue, but they do a surprisingly good job of evading predators in the dark, flower-filled jungle. Males grow spectacular pennants on their wings during the breeding season, and will compete with others in their flock in elaborate, high-speed aerial acrobatics.

Two thoughts that popped into my head with the hatchlings.
1. They look totally chill, like they are relaxing in their wings like a hammock.
2. They also remind of leaves falling from trees in the fall.

Also, I just noticed all the fancy plumage on the male Razan Yi Qi, isn't all coming from his tail. Some is attached to the wings! :look: (Yay for random observations of slow peoples!)

Nice work Mysfytt!

While real-life's pseudo-wyvern sorta loses a bit of its uniqueness in a world where actual wyverns exist, I'm still super happy to see it. It helps that they're so nicely done. :haha:

Glad you guys love them. I like doing weird stuff - weird stuff that actually existed is even better. The Yi Qi has been classified as a 'bird' in the same way of Archaeopteryx, both having feathers, a long bony tail and teeth. It is one of the many feathered dinos and early birds found in the mudstone of China and was discovered only recently. Its unique bat wing structure with bird like traits made it truly unique among the bazaar discoveries from that region.

I loooove these and I love dinosaur types.

Also they kind of remind me of the Yian Kut-Ku from Monster Hunter which perhaps makes me like them even more.
