This is going to be interesting I see 3 major favorites of mine up there.

Opabina it will be for now, though it's hard to pass up Mantis Shrimp and Dilophosaurus. Worth noting that proboscis isn't a mouth, it has a mouth under the head and that thing is more like a trunk. Should share whatever mechanics trunks have if they ever get mechanics :)

would it be possible to at some point have the body part shapes generated from the genes instead of selected from some options?

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.

Oh man, this is way more competitive than I expected. Everything has a vote. I'm still tossing up between Dimorphodon and the Rhinocerous Beetle... :D

This is EPIC! How do you decide what goes in Ququasar? is it just the top voted one, or is it the top two or three? What happens if theres a tie?

Way too many questions there. (I voted Opabina)

This is a quote from quasar from round 3.
Actually, I've decided against merging them for a variety of reasons: not all heads can be elegantly combined, it makes functionality harder to guess, and in some cases it changes this from a competition to a vote-rigging task... etc. Sorry guys, in the future ties will be broken with a tiebreaker of some description, so don't vote on that basis.
20 is against common sense.
Don't believe his lies.

On the other hand runners-up get a second shot.
