@Appalachiosaurus That was the detail I was missing here. That makes a whole lot of sense.

That's a neat find @Nanuqsaurus .  So, art preceded scientific findings.... nice!

Sadly, non of the [story specific] blurrgs survived season 1 of "The Mandalorian".  In consolation, they were part of the most heart wrenching episode thus far.



The new creatures are still unnamed and resemble wyverns with protruding eye stalks.  I enjoyed the scene/episode's shoutout to Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World", particularly the scene where the "pterodactyl" swoops in to steal the roasting agouti from the camp fire.

As much as I really dig the new flying creatures, I also felt really bad for the blurrgs. This is going to be a long week to see where the plot goes now, and then an even longer wait for the next season.

About the dewback feathering, it seems they already had it in A New Hope. I didn't know it either:



Wild! So all my toys were wrong this whole time.....
