A baboon's bottom ?
My flatmates and I got into a heated debate earlier about this so I thought I'd pose the question to a larger audience; if you could have any part or feature or characteristic or whatever of any known, and extant, animal, what would you have, and why?
So for example you could have yourself a nice set of peacock's feathers to impress the all of the ladies or gentlemen, or, as the title suggests, you may desire a baboon's arse to increase the shame of your victim when delivering halo-esque face squattings.
I'm still torn between two things at the moment so I'll post mine in a bit.
Edit: Oh yeah, the part of choice would also, unless specified otherwise, be humanised by default, so if you chose a fly proboscis for whatever perverse reason, it wouldn't be effectively invisible and would rather be a big long tube sticking out of your face. Conversely if for example you were to choose a horse phallus, purely in the interests of science of course, it could remain horse sized.
Edit 2: Also I guess you could choose something from a plant too, like photosynthesis - which could come with the added bonus of being green. Awesome.
Cassowary claws, so I can eviscerate someone with a single kick.
Though if you include features from other kingdoms, I wouldn't mind the ability to live as a clonal colony
Are thems the sonofabitches that have been known to chase after people and headbutt and claw them to death ?
And as for the second part, I thought about that 'cos then you'd kind of be like Multiple Man but would you be able to live with all that many yous ?
Eagle eyes. Imagine how useful it'll be during exams.
hmmm....tough one...gotta think of a bit.
maybe the camouflage ability of octopuses?
Right I think I've settled. I was thinking maybe regenerating like an axolotl, but then I'd have to have something forcibly removed in the first place for it to be useful, which would be pretty shitty. Plus I'd probably stay 11/12 forever.. Then I though maybe jumping like a flea but then I'd have legs that are about 3 times as long as my body, and pretty fucking hideous to boot.
So I'm going for a fully prehensile monkey-like tail, despite the fact that I'd have to wear special trousers etc. Why? Because it'd be fucking cool that's why. It'd be like a third, bendier, hairier arm that happens to protrude just above your arse. You could hang from things with it, and er.. if you were.. in a fight you could slyly jab someone in their nuts and... you could chase it in circles and... umm hold a rapier with it like nightcrawler... whatever it'd just be awesome.
Hmmm...whatever makes electric eels electric?
Thats a good idea Songoku.

I would probably want wings from some giant bird, maybe a condor. Actually when I think about it, insect wings might be better, they would certainly be lighter, but it would be harder to fly.
