The Hundredth Beast.
Beast number one hundred!  The beast’s plating has separated into a thick shell and the front branches of its legs have separated further into weight-baring limbs.  The horns on the top of its skull have become hinged, a pinscher-like helmet that can move independently from the rest of its head.
Folks, that is the end!  We would like to thank you all so much for your support and enjoyment of this project.  There is a chance that in the future Evan and I will continue the Exquisite Beast past its 100th iteration, but for now we have other projects on our respective plates (including Benign Kingdom and our respective webcomics).  Feel free to follow me on tumblr at aidosaur and Evan at evndahm.  Thank you again and please watch here for news in the near future!

The Ninety-eighth Beast.
The beast has become low and armored, boasting protective scales and spikes from head to tail.  Its feet have fully split at the ankle and it walks with a lumbering, wide gait.
