Centaurs lacked a rational design. All right, the human part gave them the ability to reason like (???) men, as well as handle objects, throw weapons, etc. But a human mouth absolutely could not eat enough food for such a big body, along with several other biological cons.

1. A tiny dino-bird (length: 10 to 15 cm), so light-framed that it can have the wind transport it by puffing out its skin balloons. Its gecko feet make it capable of sticking to the big dinosaurs, where it feeds on vermins, insects, etc.
2. Pachycephaloraptor is a small carnivore (height: about 40 cm), but quite dangerous nonetheless, since its skull is armored like Pachycephalosaurus'.
A beautiful girl, sporty body - she wears a light gray top -, long platinum blond hair. Thin face, big eyes, turned-up nose, thin lips. She got three arms. The extra shoulder blade being set under the left one, slightly external to it.
