Where the Wild Things Are – A movie on creatures - 3
Written by: By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee
Most of the creatures in the film are vaguely mammalian, from the panther-like Thanator to the obviously equine Direhorse, but at least two creatures have a slightly more reptilian aspect. Both, the Mountain Banshee and the Great Leonopteryx, are brightly-colored flying creatures that are a mix of different animals all stuck together as if some spare parts were just lying around. In general, though, they look like variations of the flying pterosaurs that thrived alongside the dinosaurs, and some prehistoric animals were even taken for inspiration in their design.
