Illusive Herd of Threshasaurus Sighted

Steampunk Dinosaurs in their Natural Habitat
A herd of Threshasauruses, herbivores that travel in herds.
Naturally curious, these species have no qualms with our approach.
The Treshasaurus has evolved cleverly adapted anatomy. What looks like the head and mouth of the animal is actually the rear, and vice-versa — which confuses predators and aids in its survival.
The Threshasaurus’s large size and curious nature may appear antagonistic, but they are mostly curious and largely non-threatening. Be careful when approaching, however, as they do have sharp teeth and many fast moving, exposed pulleys.
The Threshasaurus diet is largely grains. An adult can consume 8 tons of wheat per day! Their refined digestive system seperates the chaff, so their waste makes for symbiotic relationships with other species who cannot consume raw plants.
As the mating season approaches, male Threshasauruses wrestle each other for favored females and territory.
As the day ends, we now leave the herd as they find a spot to bed down for the night.
