Below are two photos taken from the book, "Endangered Species NXT". They illustrate how you can creatively embellish the models in the book, using materials "outside the box". (Click on the photos to see larger versions).
The above photo shows how you can transform the book's "Komodo Dragon" into a dragon from classical mythology, using common Bionicle parts.
The photo above shows the book's sloth with "fur", using a feather boa from a local craft store.
These photos (and others like them) are included in the book, in order to spur the imaginations of builders. Kids, teachers and parents can then use their own, unique materials and parts to transform their animal robots into something new.
