Developmental Commentary

Since the Xiaosaurus is extinct I could only base my type on its physical characteristics and what they may imply. The Xiaosaurus was a small agile herbivore that had large eyes and leaf shaped cheek teeth. It also had a flexible neck and a long tail. I tried to keep the type generally organic in nature. I used leaf like shapes to create larger bodies to characters with small, stubby appendages. I felt it was only necessary to give the type somewhat of a sci-fi feel. I felt I was creating science fiction of my own resurrecting a piece of the past on modern day technology.
