). The Gallusasaurus (Chicken Lizard) is the descendent of domestic chicken that have been injected with the genes of small theropods in an attempt reconstruct the dinosaurs. When humans fled from Earth during the C-O (Cenozoic-Ornithozoic) event many Gallusasauruses were brought aboard the ships along with animals of other species, however the Gallusasauruses that were left behind began to reproduce and populate, making them one of the few animals who's evolution was influenced by humans. They are greatly favored by many predators.
The Gallusasurus' diet consists mainly of small insects, lizards and seeds. Their Morphology has perplexed Corvin Zoologists for centuries due to constant debate on whether they are birds with long tails or reptiles with feathers and beaks. The debate ended when a renown Corvin Biologist made the amazing discovery that Gallusasauruses had the genes of both bird and reptile leaving him to theorize this species as the missing link between birds and reptiles, thus promptly placing them in a class of their own which was designed specifically for animals that bare both avians and reptilian traits. The Biologist was utterly shocked when he discovered that the reptilian genes that Gallusasaurus contains is from dinosaurs; reptiles that was extinct even before the Age of Mammals.
This lead to the theory that a small dinosaur species somehow survived the K-T event and survived long enough to evolve into Gallusasauruses. Little do Corvins know that Gallusasaurus is not really a direct descendent of the dinosaurs for not nature alone designed this reptavian but mainly by human.
