Speculative Evolution Creature Project

This creature project is a speculative look into the future and the kinds of adaptations that current animal species may evolve given certain changes in their environment. These 3 fictional species are intended to live in the same location/ environment (future Japan) where many of the lowland areas and rivers have become flooded wetlands due to the effects of climate change.
