The Lalorlongians

“The natives resembled automobile wheels with balloon tires. The tires were composed of thin but tough inflated skins with diamond shaped treads. The wheel part consisted of a rim of bone and twelve bone spokes with grew from the hub. The hub was a ball covered with a hard shell like an ant’s exoskeleton. This contained the brain, and the nervous, digestive, and sexual systems.”
