The Skyray is a small, herbivorous avian fauna species.

Appearance

The Skyray is a small, avian creature having two wings covered with white feathers. Its head, chest and wing tips are black, connected by a thin line spanning the front edge of its wings.

The head has two small, completely white eyes situated on each side, and a black beak.

The Skyray's body ends with a small, black tip in-between its short legs. Its chest bears blue and green bioluminescent markings.

Design

The Skyray has convergently evolved an extremely similar body plan to birds on Earth. It shares striking similarities in colouration and appearance with corvid birds of the genus Pica.

Data Bank Entry

SkyRay

The skyray has a bird-like head, and feathered wings which enable it to fly. Skyrays are commonly found circling floating structures, and rarely venture far out to sea. They will perch on dry land, but are prone to flee on approach.

  1. Wings:
    Although its wings give it some resemblance in silhouette to the waterborne rays on 4546B, analysis shows no greater genetic overlap with those species than the planetary average - in fact the skyray appears to have split off the evolutionary tree much earlier than most.
     
  2. Diet:
    Largely seed-based. Skyrays have not been observed diving for food, which implies they rely on land-based plants for their survival.


Assessment: Presence may indicate nearby dry land.

Trivia

  • The player can stand on and ride a flying Skyray simply by jumping on top of it, but the player may fall off mid-flight.
