Other questions from this thread:
Oh my that title is a mouthful, but as a parody of the super solider questions and as an efficient way of organizing these questions I will now start this series of questions about Pseudo-Arthropod Primates.
As an overview of what these creatures exactly are well, they aren't any more related to arthropods than you or me. Just think of armadillo armor placed on primates to make a humanoid arthropod look alike.
Now for the question, in order to make these pseudo-arthropods live up to their name they are gonna need to mimic the most famous traits of arthropods, the exoskeleton. And that is where my question comes in, s it possible to make a mammalian shell that meets the requirements below?
- Needs to cover this area of the creature\ pretend the dark green is the exoskeleton
- Work with mammalian skin with minimal changes to it
- Smooth looking and not leathery looking like an armadillo shell
- Needs to be biological
- the weaker version still needs to be able to take a lot hits, damage and even the impact of falls
