|Behind the Scenes|
|Created by||Wayne Barlowe|
The Cragspringer is a wingless relative of the Springwing which inhabits the equatorial mountain ranges of planet Darwin IV. Despite not being able to glide like its relative, the Cragspringer excels as a leaper, being able to accomplish over twenty-meter long jumps without difficulty.
Cragspringers are diurnal, gregarious creatures, and spend most of their time foraging on the cliffsides, feasting on screeweeds and cliff-polyps. Though their body armor serves as effective protection against predators, many end up killed by the frequent avalanches and rockslides which plague their natural habitat.
