Winning entry, with a score of:
61.6%
Contest goal:

In this contest your goal is to take an animal that really shouldn't fly and make it fly like the wind! The animal must be flying using their own power (eg. by adding wings, a propeller, ....) and not as a passenger on a flying transportation vehicle. Good luck and have fun with this one!


Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

ponti55: Nice idea! ( 5 years and 1493 days ago )
RayTedwell: So am I reading this correctly that you can't add wings to an otherwise ordinary animal? So we just have to show an animal in the sky?? ( 5 years and 1493 days ago )
artist3001: The "etc." part worries me the most. ( 5 years and 1493 days ago )
Glockman: I think wings can be added but not to animals that you would normally see them added to, such as dragons ,horses and such. I think mice, cats, bears and such would be Ok. ( 5 years and 1492 days ago )
Contest Moderator: It just means the animal can't be placed on a flying transportation device... adding wings is of course allowed ( 5 years and 1492 days ago )
rakib888: adding wings dosent means that its flying...this contest should be then named as mixed animle contest..not a flying creature ( 5 years and 1490 days ago )
SilverSurfer: Not necessarily rakib, You could, in fact, create your own wings instead of cutting and pasting existing wings on an animal. I believe the contest is aptly named and should be a good one before it's all done! ( 5 years and 1488 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

This entry is resubmited because it was deleted without previous warning and without any message. Anyway i think i know what was wrong with the image so PLS VOTE AGAIN for this image. I removed some of the animals from before , because they were not suitable in the air. Thanks.

Im proud to present the first photos of this zoological sensation!

This new species was discoverd recently, while author explored his or her jungle of thougts. The so-called "froglloon" decided to speed up evolution, so it became a new kind of frog in only one day. This new species is able fly to south each winter with migratory balloons. There is a special lightweight gas in its air-bag on chin, so its easy for the "froglloon" to take off. Theres no idea which way and where it will land so far, scientists suppose it locates a top3 entry for come back on earth, but theres still no forecast possible. (5 years and 1489 days ago)
