Ancient Dunewalker

The long-lived Dunewalkers puncture the surface of the desert floor with their long, hollow legs, siphoning off large reservoirs of massive sub-surface insect swarms. By controlling the release of it's hot digestive gases, the Dunewalker maintains its buoyancy, counterbalancing its enormous weight like a hot-air balloon. Bacterial colonies feed upon these nutrient rich gas clouds and attract airborne insects, who are then consumed by flocks of desert birds whose droppings in turn attract the sub-surface swarms, completing this ancient symbiotic cycle of the wastes.
