The Tenth Beast.
The beast is becoming increasingly spindly, more like an animal built for gliding, with its sails extending to the hind “legs.”  The front manipulators have developed specialty thumbs and are textured for grasping, somewhat like a gecko’s feet.  The extra eyes are devolving into peripheral light-sensitive receptors more than proper eyes.
For this beast in particular, I tried to take inspiration from mantises, arboreal lizards, and gliding animals.
