General Info

Bird/Dinosaur/Pony hybrids

The front legs work like a griffons, not like a horse

They have bright, multicolor plumage

Females have skinny bird/dinosaur front legs (any small bird/reptile) Males front legs are thicker (bids of prey/large reptiles)
Both genders have cloven hooves

Their horns are usually split and deformed, and small enchanted gems grow from them. These gems are the source of their magic. If a gem breaks off, they stay floating around the horn

Wings grow small, allowing for brief moments of flight. They also add a speed boost when running

Eye whites are colored, usually yellow, but can sometimes be orange/red or a lime green

Their teeth are sharp, helping with eating small creatures

Their tongues are long, and their mouth color is in the same color field as their eyes

Tufts of fur at the base of the tail vary in length and volume

They're rather small, standing a full head shorter than the average pony

When running, preparing to fight, or climbing, they stand up on their hind legs

Rare Traits

Rare Archaeops are bigger than common ones (same size as a regular pony)

Faces are longer, with more elegant snouts (in mlp show style, a face model like those of Cadence or Shining Armor)

Tails are decorated in various organic things (i.e. flowers, moss, vines, fruit, ect.)

Pegasi have larger wings, making them capable of flight

Rare Unicorns can have 2-3 horns, the extras being smaller and trailing down the snout

Tongues are often forked

These are very cute! I love how tiny they are and the little feathers :3

Are they actually ponies though? Or Bird/Dino hybrids?? Kinda confused about that, but I would be interested in making one but I can't really afford to right now, maybe later?

How does one go about purchasing the ability to make one? And is it pay for one? I am very interested in this species!
