The Bamboo–eating Booral (Bambusitherium austroailuropodoides) is a species of Booral native to the tropical forests of north-eastern Australia. It is smaller than most Boorals, being only 1.6m tall at the shoulder, and even more unusually is solitary. As its name suggests it feeds    entirely on Bamboo branches, leaves and stems. They do not have territories and instead wander nomadically in search of food, water and shelter, and males and females may mate if they cross paths. Females give birth a single joey which she raises by herself. They have the longest claws of any Booral, which they will use to defend themselves from predators, displaying them by standing erect on its hind legs and holding its arms out. Its sides, chest, arms, neck and head are red while the rest of its body is orange with thin vertical white stripes.
Ahab’s Leviathan (Magnifipisces ahabia); also called the Great White Leviathan, the Ghost Leviathan and the Moonskin Leviathan, is the largest species of cetidont, a title which was previously held by the Emerald Leviathan, reaching lengths of 47-50m. During the day Ahab’s Leviathans feed on plankton at depths of up to 2,200m, and when night falls they follow the plankton up to the surface, where they also feed on krill. Though they are cosmopolitan, they are most commonly seen in arctic and Antarctic waters. They are the longest living animal of the Allocene and can live for up 600 years.      
Bird-bears (Arctavidae) are a family of large heavily built flightless predatory birds descended from Skuas native to Antarctica. They have completely lost their wings and move about on two strong legs. They live in tropical, sub-tropical, temperate and coniferous forests and tundra preying upon herbivorous flightless birds and mammals, which they ambush and then kill with powerful bites of their hatchet-like beak. They are solitary and individuals require large territories, females being larger than males and so have larger territories. When courting females males build a semi-circular structure of rocks, branches, leaves and bones around a recently killed prey  animal which he offers to the female. If she is pleased with his offering she will allow him to mate with her. She will then lay a large single egg which she diligently cares for until her offspring reaches maturity.

The species are:    

Kabuki-faced Bird-bear. (Arctavis kabukiops) Lives in temperate and mountain forests. Its upper side is red-brown with a pale yellow to white underside while its face is white with three or four symmetrical black spots on either side. Males are 1.6m tall and females are 2m tall.

Lesser Mountain Bird-bear (Orarctavis minor) Lives above the timberline on mountains. Its upper side is dark grey while its underside is light grey with dark grey speckles. Males are 1.2m tall and females are 1.3m tall.  

Greater Mountain Bird-bear (Oractavis major) Lives above the timberline on mountains. The front half of its body and all of is back is light grey while the back half of its body and its haunches are dark grey. Males are 1.4m tall and females are 1.6m tall.

Stripe-necked Bird-bear (Melanopteryx vergacollum) Lives in tropical forests. It is black with thin white stripes along its neck and the front of its chest. Males are 1.1m tall and females are 1.4m tall.

Golden-shouldered Bird-bear (Melanopteryx chrysoscapula) Lives in tropical and subtropical forests. It is black with a golden patch over its shoulders and down its sides. Males are 1.2m tall and females are 1.5m tall.

Polar Bird-bear (Avinanuq albopteryx) Lives on tundras and in coniferous forests. It is light brown in summer and white in winter. Males are 2.4m tall and females are 2.7m tall.

Great Shaggy Bird-bear (Australorex hirsutus) Lives in temperate and mountain forests. It has a brown shaggy coat. Males are 3.6m tall and females are 4.6m tall.
The Crab-eating Finch (Cancriphagospiza virgapectus) is a species of finch native to the mangrove forests of the Galapagos islands. It spends most of its time on the ground or in the water, returning to the trees only to sleep and nest, hunting for crabs. Both genders are  entirely light grey in colour with males having three horizontal black stripes along their chest. Both genders are similar in size too, ranging between 13 and 17cm in length. They are solitary and congregations rarely occur, coming together only to mate. Males present females with crab claws and legs, puffing up their chest feathers and vigorously shaking their head.  Females lay 2-3 eggs in nests which she raises with her mate.
The Sea Snail-eating Finches (Thalassocochleaphagospiza sp) are a genus of Finches native to the Galapagos islands. There are two species; the Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finch (T. polyanulus), and the Beach Sea Snail-eating Finch (T. fulvus). They feed in much the same way as their close relative the Snail-eating Finch except they feed on aquatic and amphibious snails, wading and even swimming in search of prey. In the Beach Sea Snail-eating Finch both genders have light brown bodies, with tawny underwings, undersides and heads, while in the Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finch both genders are entirely tawny brown with the male having small light grey rings in two parallel rows going down their backs and light grey speckles on the ends of their primary wing feathers. Both genders of both species are similar in size, ranging between 8 and 10cm in length. While males of both  species present females with fragments of snail shells, male Beach Sea Snail-eating Finches bob enthusiastically up and down, male Mangrove Sea Snail-eating finches bow down, spread their wings and “shuffle” around potential mates. Female Mangrove Sea Snail-eating Finches make nests in the branches of mangrove trees, laying 2-4 eggs which she and her mate raise. Beach Sea Snail-eating Finches make nests in coastal forests, laying 2-5 eggs which she and her mate raise
