Silverback King by darksilvania Silverback King by darksilvania
Finaly, my second hydrid full colored and with a name

"Silverback King" (Tetraceratherium Behemoth)

Hybrided from:
-Mountain Gorilla
-White Rhinoceros
-American Bison

A full grown Bull of Silverback King stand 3.3 m tall when upright and weight up to 3,600 kg. The arm span is up to 3.6 m. Females are smaller than males.

This specie is vegetarian and sociable, but their are also very territorial and can be very agressive.

He is incredible strong, possesing huge muscles distributed over his hump and shoulders up to his neck and arms. A Grown Bull is able to lift his own weight over his head.

This animal walks over his knuckles, so, to protect them from the pressure of his own weight, he has developed a hard cover for them, made from the same matherial as his horns. This hard knuckles are also used to protect them when fighting.

His skin is incredible thick, and the fur over his shoulders, back and neck give him extra protection, making very hard for others to land severe damage.

When two Bulls fight they will always start with a display of power, hithing the ground and their chests, ripping off trees and moving their long horns back and fort in a menacing way. If the intimidation doesnt work, they will start fighting, until one of them is too hurt to keep. This titanic brawls can be heard (and sometimes felt) over 2 km around.

This creatures receive his name from two main characteristics:
When full grown, males start growing a silver spot in their backs, like gorillas do, thats why they are called "Silverback"
Also, due to the 3 smaller horns position, when looked carefully, they seem to look like a crown, thats why they are called "King"

Well, I think this is enough, hope you like it

This is my favorite one. Question though. Are these based on characters from videogames/TV shows or are they just based on real animals? (Whom you're done great justice to, btw)

I think I'm going to make a character of this breed now, if that would be alright with you, of course. It's a very brilliant design, encompassing strength, speed, and stamina from three of the powerhouse species.

this one is awesome, especially with the little detail of the hoof parts as knuckle armor, allowing for the gorilla's gallumphing gait while still supporting the bulk of the two other species in him. altogether, just awesome!

Wow! I absolutely love how you did the knuckles on his front feet so that they look like rhino feet when he's walking on his knuckles like a gorilla would. INGENIOUS!

I'm loving these hybrids. PLEASE MAKE MORE :la: You've been doing an awesome job!

Whilst it's not hard to type "3.3m in feet" into Google (Google calculator does conversions too) - 3.3m is about 10ft, and 3.6tonnes is 3.9tons. You should really know approx conversions... 3ft=90cm (or just call it a metre) and 1 tonne is 1.1 ton.

gorillas have huge teeth, but they are like that so they can eat bamboo, which is pretty hard

From wikipedia

There are more than 70 genera divided into about 1,450 species.[2] They are found in diverse climates, from cold mountains to hot tropical regions. They occur across East Asia, from 50N latitude in Sakhalin[citation needed] through to Northern Australia, and west to India and the Himalayas.[3] They also occur in sub-Saharan Africa, and in the Americas from the Mid-Atlantic United States[4] south to Argentina and Chile, reaching their southernmost point anywhere, at 47S latitude. Continental Europe is not known to have any native species of bamboo.[5]

I do my research, do yours

I absolutely love this! I imagine that you'll be doing a sky hybrid last, since the great white dragon is sea and the silverback king is earth.

I can see that the silverback and the great white dragon respectively correspond to the behemoth and leviathan. I imagine you'll have to do one that corresponds with the Ziz.

Other than that, this is awesome!

While the previous hybrid was something akin to the Leviathan, this one is akin to the Behemoth. This thing is flat out awesome as hell and I like how the various aspects of its various species came together almost seamlessly in this. The Gorilla's jaws, the Bison's powerful back and the Rhino's thick skin and armored knuckles.
