Default Ziggurat Hatchling -- The Living Battering Ram From Xibalba

My muse demanded a more fantasy oriented battering ram. Wanted to go more Mesoamerican than Medieval Europe to appease the Mayan Calendar:






Backstory:

Ziggurat Hatchlings revel in punching holes through solid objects, laughing hysterically with every perforation. Their thick shells are comparable in hardness to diamonds, and their tripod claws turn everything they touch into the consistency of dry rot. They also wield spinal whips at the tip of their claws, which they use to sweep aside any defensive measures. These living battering rams feed on large chunks of rubble and anything they find buried beneath. They gather near the exit portal from the Mayan underworld, buried deep beneath an overgrown Ziggurat, pounding furiously at the walls.



Beautiful work everyone. Thanks for looking.
