Cerebrum Nasus by Vincent-Covielloart Cerebrum Nasus by Vincent-Covielloart
Cerebrum nasus is a medium sized quadruped with a unique adaptation to navigate a world that seldom has light. While equipped with eyes that can pick up ultraviolet light, the Cerebrum Nasus “sees” it’s world through it’s large multifaceted nose. This large fleshy organ holds multiple nostrils to pick up the slightest of shifts in scent. It also can emit and register as an electroreceptor. Communication between individuals is also processed through the organ via electric fields. 

This melon will become vibrant during mating season as a way to attract and will accompany a unique electo-song as a way to entice females. Each song is unique to the individual and is entirely inaudible.

Woa what a design. Kinda makes me want to see this guy in motion. Also medium-sized in relation to what? Cat-sized or cow-sized? Really dig the concept and look of its nose :)

I wonder if somebody managed to detect their songs via gadgets of some sort and hypothetical internet of the future has a solid fan base of these them.
I mean there are people who listen to whale songs because of reasons so why not those?
