Hey, thanks for the comments! I do like to blab about anthropology and biology, enough to influence this comic's setting quite a bit.

No problem. Your interest really shows through in your movement animations. Rather reminds me of Eadweard Muybridge's "The Horse in Motion".
I'd also point out that you can't really tell an organism has a very high amount of genetic diversity by appearance; you'd be surprised how few genes need to be variable to get really large changes in structure. Larger differences arise on more cellular levels, like the ability to metabolize different compounds or immune system components. Heck, even things like intelligence (in the context of human intelligence vs other animals) are controlled by very few genes.

Biology has long been a fascination of mine, so I've picked up a thing or two (also, growing up and voraciously reading every book in the school library on sharks, watching shows like Marty Stouffer's Wild America, Nature and NOVA, plus any and all National Geographic specials I could find and anything narrated by David Attenborough). I've even considered getting a minor in it, but that would require two more classes in the Scale Up room, and I bloody hate that setup.

Oh you're right about the genes; for the yinglets, it mainly manifests in differing numbers of teeth, difference in arm/leg length, and a bunch of other little superficial factors... I can't wait to get into what makes their breeding process so unusual.
