In the alternate reality, the planet Nibiru was home to a number of creatures.

Riding animal Edit

Nibiru riding animal

An animal on Nibiru

This animal was a large friendly quadruped, capable of standing on both two or four legs. It could be used as a riding animal by humanoids. In 2258, a startled James T. Kirk stunned one of these creatures, much to Leonard McCoy's dismay, as they could have ridden it to escape a mob of angry Nibirans. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

This creature was originally scripted as an "alien horse", [1] but the final model was a modified version of the Drakoulias from Star Trek. "We gave it a shave and a spray tan," remembered Paul Kavanagh, "and we re-rigged it with some new techniques we've developed to handle quadropeds, which gave us better animation controls." (Cinefex, No. 134, p. 77) According to the website FXGuide, the filmmakers dubbed the Nibiran version of the animal "Niborilla". [2] However, according to Cinefex (No. 134, p. 77), this name is spelt "Nibirilla".
The virtual collectible card battle game Star Trek: Rivals has an image of a Domesticated Niborilla as card #45.

Tree creature Edit
