Salinka'ri
I kept my promise, what more do you want? =P
About this creation
The Salinka'ri is a rare but wide spread species of Snail throughout the Matoran Universe. Their spiky shells and face patterns ward off predators. In a myth from the Tren Krom Peninsula, the Hero, a Le-Toa named Lumakah, had an over sized pet Salinka'ri who sacrificed itself to save Lumakah. Lumakah then wore it's shell as a helmet, which later ended up saving his head from a nasty fall. The Snail was later revived by the god Tren Krom, and Lumakah and the Salinka'ri fought in the De-Koro Le-Koro War where they fell in battle protecting the Turaga. Another myth from the Southern Continent says a Salinka'ri's slime can enhance armor. A Steltian myth says the Salinka'ri were so poisonous that when one climbed a tree it would poison the fruit.

















This little guy has actually been laying around for around a year or more... =P He was originally a Tar-infested Snail I built for Beyond Botana RPG, but I never posted him.

Have a Good Day! I have no to Say!

Quoting Shining TORPedo Hol' up a minute, you've had this built for a YEAR and couldn't get it posted in the first week of the round?! :P Regardless('specially since I'm the last one who should be pointing fingers) it's neat, simple and effective parts usage. I also like the assorted legends you added, that happens all the time with real animals and just adds to the authenticity.
I still hadn't taken the pictures and I don't have the best set up, I needed good weather, which isn't exactly common this time o' year where I live. =P I like myths, especially European ones, and I was looking up Salamanders not that long ago and they had some interesting myths and folklore. The Myth about the tree I borrowed from the Salamander. =P Also you may be interested to know that Salinka'ri is Greek for snail, (Although I MAY have Romanized it wrong) and Lumakah is Italian for snail with an added 'h' to make it look more Bionicle-ish. =P

Quoting Wolf Pack Nice. The Inika mask (whatever it's called) works well as the shell.
It's a Mask of Flight, and yes it does, doesn't it?

Quoting Ciblast omega Remember Escargoon? This is him now. Feel old yet?
I didn't even know who Escargoon was until a minute ago when I looked him up. =P I prefer the word 'ancient' regardless. =P
