ARTICLE NOTES:

[ Grass windsurfers are a group of small, insectoid creatures which inhabit the windy darkgrass plains in the near-side terminator on Khepri-1b. Their prominent tail spine contains a folded thin membrane that can be expanded to act as a sail, allowing them to glide short distances on the strong and near-perpetual gusts in the region. Inflatable air sacs on either side of their bodies allow them some control over their own buoyancy. They often have bright eye-like markings on the dorsal side of their bodies, which likely serve the same purpose as eyespots seen in Earth life for deceiving predator or prey species. ]
