The B52 of gryphons…
If that’s the ‘B-52 of Gryphons’, then what would a Haast’s Eagle/Smilodon (commonly called the ‘saber-toothed tiger’) be called?
Why, the B36 of gryphons, of course. :)
(Look up B36 peacemaker bomber on youtube if you are unfamiliar with this airplane- the largest bomber ever made.)
nope; that would be the Bismarck of gryphons (2nd biggest battleship of the world, only the Yamato was bigger)
Now I wanna see a size comparison between them and Jim.
All the griffins we’ve seen in reader questions do need a size comparison chart
This is a big marsupial. I am impressed at your knowledge of extinct wildlife. You make me feel like less of a nerd about knowing this stuff.
How about a Microgryphon. A gerbil and a parakeet hybrid?
How do Avalon’s treat parasitic type non-humans such as your a-typical vampire? Cant go in sun and needs to drink blood from live humans?
I’m sure H.P. Lovecraft had to be one of those ‘oops’ moments. An Avalon inhabitant thought he was an open minded, friendly, human ready to be introduced to their community. Unfortunately despite all positive indicators it did not go over as planned. Most likely an aquatic-centric Avalon. Who else in history was most likely another Avalon ‘oops’ ? What kind of effect would that have on Avalon culture, other than being an oops itself?
Jeeeeeeeeeeze, those FEET. And that beak! O_O This’d be the kind of gryphon that once hunted wooly mammoths.
All these gryphons are making me curious to see a large bird/small mammal or small bird/large mammal matchup.
I agree with other commenters; a size chart would be excellent.
Any chance you’re thinking of a bear dangling from a pair of hummingbird wings? ;-)
This question is inspired by Fallout 76, In the Skin Deep universe are the Beast of Grafton or the Snallygaster present?
There was an RQ a month back about the Snallygaster:
even scarier than the fallout 76 one
What would happen if a creature (such as a gryphon) had their medallion on their tail or wings? (or something else that humans don’t have)
I think it would move to the neck, as shown in Colin’s medallion-ing. He simply whaps it with his paw, but it ends up on his neck.
Well, if we’re looking for the biggest griffon we can, why not Argentavis + Paraceratherium? Or Pelagornis + Paleoloxodon?
While we’re on the topic of gryphons (which do seem to have been the topic for this batch of reader questions and honestly, no complaints at all) – do you think the half-peacock, half-wolf, all-badass simurghs/anghas are a kind of gryphon, or are they something else? It’d be awesome to see one Skin-Deepified if nothing else.
There’s a public service announcement about fishing licenses and boat registration that I’ve often heard on the radio. It asks, “Are you a bear? Do you have a beak? Do you have plumage?”
Whenever I hear that PSA, I think of Skin Deep.
YES! I was wanting to ask for a Haast’s eagle gryphon! Glad to see someone already had it covered!
An Argentavis or Pelagornis gryphon would probably smoke them all.
YESSSS! He looks like the most cuddly grump-fluff ever! <3
