Sleeping, Probably.
exquisitebeast:

The Eighteenth Beast.
The beast has become aquatic!  The air sacs now act as buoys to keep the beast stable while it filters critters from near the surface of the water.  The sac supports have also grown some prickly spines to ward off predators.  The bladders on the face have grown some sort of gills to filter out the water it takes while feeding.  This guy was heavily influenced by basking sharks.
Have you been checking the Exquisite Beast tumblr tag?  There’ve been some neat things going on over there!  Aaron Diaz did a fantastic evolution of the fifteenth beast the other day.

This is a fascinating project. Go back and read through from the first beast! It’s beautiful and wondrous and all sorts of Good Science-y Fantasy-ish Things.
