Artwork Description

A descendant of the long-extinct bison that feeds upon the lilipad-like hydrop plant. The buffafloat, bobbing along since birth, has adapted to store the hydrogen from the hydrop plants in gas bladders under it's hide. Although it can use it's modified split-hoof fins to do some minor navigation, the buffafloat is a gentle creature, and it drifts along with the hydrop pastures. It's adapted a beard particuarly suited to the entanglement of hydrops. It feeds off the trapped plants in it's beard throughout the day.

Clearly the buffafloat uses similar propulsion methodology to the fschz, which can't be a bad thing. Talking of eating plants trapped in its beard - I knew a guy at work who did the same thing (although he remained earthbound). Nice job.

Gyaaaagh!!! What is it!?! I'm sorry, but I find this hilarious, but yes, brilliantly original as well.
