Poor new Irrilia doesn't quite know what just happened. :saddummy:
...and I feel like I ought to start off with an explanation here. ^^;

You see, some species of regular salamanders have a tendency to eat their babies (hence why pet owners are advised to keep the adults and the young apart). The idea of the Salamandrian race having the same issue started as an inside joke between me and my sister but then escalated into a serious head canon about Salamandrians. No matter how brutal it sounded, I also had to admit that it made things much more interesting. :nod:

And don’t worry! The baby is fine. :la: Much thanks to dad’s genes. Turns out that an underdeveloped carapace and plastron is strong enough to protect any vital organs from mommy’s chompers. :aww: She’ll be fine. At least physically…  scared.... 'the 2nd'  It’s gonna be interesting to see how this traumatic childhood experience may shape her personality.

I’m sorry if I come off as a bit cruel... onion sad  But I kinda like the idea of Raph raising Irrilia by himself on Earth in the beginning. :meow: And it makes things a little easier too… Partly because of the complications that are bound to happen when the parents live very different lives on different planets, and partly because Mona Lisa is fricking hard to draw… :prod:  This way, I don’t need to have her around that much. Sorry, girl. You look amazing, and that’s why I can’t draw you. :sigh: 

Important note: I don’t really think that a Salamandrian hospital would look like this. :XD: I just didn’t have time to construct a more believable "alien" interior. But I had to come up with a Salamandrian doctor. Don’t know much about him. I just call him Wilson. Shrug 

I have a lot of head canons when it comes to Salamandrians society and biology (and how Raph's and Mona's relationship would work in my world), but I don’t wanna stretch the description by listing it all here. I might just draw it in the future. :dummy:

Raph isn't too young to be father?

still, it would be amusing to watch him fathering something... someone xD

I've deliberately left out his age so that people can imagine whatever they are comfortable with. :happybounce: Though, according to one of the writers, Raph's should be at least 17 in season 4. :aww: So it kinda depends on when this is taking place. :meow:

Haha! :D Yes! :heart: Raph as a father is quite an intriguing subject. :la:

Oh dear, terrifying. But it means Raph gets to bond earlier with his baby.

I love hebpairing, seeing Ralph as sweet sensitive guy :) and a daddy.

It reminds me of this show, where the alien race are never around their young when they hatch and are less then a day old.

Because for the first 24 hours they'll eat everything in sight.

So, this is the reversal.

Mona probably didn't even realize her little ones was in her mouth...she was just probably worried on how she was gonna tell raph, possibly freaking out and need the chew on something...and unfortunately The little on was there ^^;

Thankfully the pet shop owner saved her in time :sweatdrop: revamp v2

so does this mean Irrilia brings a new "turtle Tots?" or... would it be hybrid tot? It'd be interesting how a living with the turtles( Splinter, and April, Casey.. you know what, just the entire crew) would affect this little girl's behavior.

I can only imagine how her upbringing would be like in this unlikely family of rats and mutants! :D (With a touch of humans :meow:) I got a couple of comics sketched down on the subject, but haven't gotten around to finish them yet. :aww:
