INTRO: CTN and CreatureBox are proud to present the 2012 Design a Creature Challenge! Every day at CreatureBox we rack our brains trying to come up with the next original creature design. And frankly, we need a little help sometimes. We want you to help us design a new creature that is the most unique, fun and crazy monster we’ve ever seen.

HOW TO ENTER: We know what we like when we hear it, so we challenge you to describe to us the most unique creature you can think of in just 20 words or less. When you think you’ve come up with the most original, wild and strange creature you can think up, send it to us:
