The beast has adapted to wade in the water and hunt small crustaceans and fish. Its wings still boast an eye facade and strangely specialized feathers for threat and sexual display, but do not support flight.
The beast’s elaborate mask has shrunken into something smaller and more practical, being replaced by a voluminous mane as its point of sexual selection. Its scaling has shrunken and thinned out into a feather-like fur.
The seventy-seventh beast. Its face and horns have developed into an enormous, elaborate mask, sexually selected for based upon its complexity and size until it is completely ridiculous. Its body is lower to the ground to support its newly front-heavy shape.
The seventy-third beast. Its lures have become shorter, sturdier antlers that might function now to attract mates instead of prey. Its six limbs are adapted now for climbing among branches, rather than just sticking to the trunk.
