It was between the Crocodile Longjaw and the Halo Split Jaw for me and seeing the way the votes are going, I might as well go with the Longjaw to make sure it wins. :P

... Why not Zoidberg ?

Actually I chose the crocodile jaw. :) I'll stay on the "realistic" side for now.
At this point, we shouldn't be surprised by anything nature does. She's like a meth addict whose drug-fueled rampages unfold in slow motion and span millions of years.

Maybe not everybody know what the halo splitjaw thing looks like (though I imagine somewhat like the alien Predator)? Anyways, a croc type jaw would be good.

Crocodile Jaw it is for me, too. Also, your username looks familiar.

You should keep the number of votes visible, but hide the results until the end. You don't want people to be persuaded to vote for one over the other or decide not to bother voting because one of the options is already way ahead of the others.

The Elite referenced is this type of... thing Image

The jaw itself is this: Image

The second pic I think was from an animation made about Halo, but to capture the true form of the Elite I put the first one.

We're halfway there and we've got... 3040 visitors. If this keeps up we should hit 5000 with a day or two to spare! :)

Gotta say, I'm surprised the crocodile jaw is such a darkhorse. I was expecting either the zoidberg tentacles or the split jaw.

Maybe because the crocodile longjaw is awesome? Also, long like a Gharial, which is a fish eater, your typical crocodillian jaw (modern ones anyway), or something that is crocodillian and yet alien at the same time?

Also, we do have that cthulhu-esque head that sort of looks like it has a split jaw, though it's an herbivore head I think?
