I was looking for some simple way to illustrate what a hooder looks like and came up with some handy ideas. Take a human spine and graft a horseshoe crab on the end of it, and you’re about there. I mean, take a look at this and imagine it ten times bigger and slamming down on top of you.
Also, whilst looking at human spines, I found this. Just remove the pelvis and the light bulb and you’ve got the general shape of a hooder.
