Etiris Gryphus ("Rainbow Griffin")

Another "Alien Bestiary" example, this time it's the Rainbow Griffin. This creature has a mixture of bird like features with its bony beak and sharp talons for digging, as well as fur/feathery type brightly coloured plummage to use for attracting a mate and detering predators.

Despite its name the creature is flightless and tends to its young by burying them in warrens under the ground. This is where it's sharp talons come in use for digging and burrowing.
