Alien description generator

This alien description generator will generate a fairly random description of an alien race, mostly based on their appearance.
Some aspects of the descriptions will remain the same, this is done to keep the general structure the same, while still randomizing the important details.

The description is kept a little vague on purpose. The aim of this generator is to give a rough idea of what an alien race might look like, while at the same time hopefully providing you with enough information and inspiration to fill in the missing details.
A four legged, blue, red and orange feathered bird species with a sharp, long beak, 4 eyes and 2 enormous wings will be different for everybody. You will have to fill in their eye color, their leg and perhaps claw color. Their behavior, what type of society they live in, how intelligent they are and so on.

Some of the aspects I left out are or will be covered by other description generators, like a society description generator.

It's possible to get a description for one of 7 species. Mammals, aquatic mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates, but mammals have a slightly larger chance of being described.
Note that invertebrates is technically a wide covering term, but while creating them I kept insects, crustaceans and arthropods in mind, so no worms, corals, sponges and so on, as I felt those didn't make for very interesting alien species.

Some species may seem a bit weird as a concept for an intelligent alien society, especially those without arms like fish and birds, but I think they make for perhaps even more interesting societies when you think about how they'd have to organize and perhaps even build things. Besides, mermaids could be considered fish and they often have huge societies.
