My entry to BCBS Challenge Build 11: "The Eyes have It!" for March 2013. The Taheniho are insectoid Rahi found mainly in volcanic regions in the Matoran Universe. They feed on the lava flowing out of volcanoes,using,strangely enough, their single eye which makes up most of their heads. When cornered by predators, they would shoot a powerful beam of energy which obliterates or incapacitates the enemy. In the absence of their food source (lava), they would attack any living creature their size and absorb its energy through the red tips of their legs. Although a Taheniho's exoskeleton are resistant to high temperatures,this becomes null when a Taneniho dies, making hunting Taneniho for their exoskeleton a waste of time and effort.

A view of its tummy.
It's head, which its only eye-used to feed and defend against predators-seems to attach.
