This is incredible, the relative size alone makes this creature such a terror.
The amount of detail is incredible, and the anatomy is so original!

Oh!  Here's the full image!  Incredible.
Low gravity, high oxygen content with abundant water and biomass, much like Earth' Mesozoic,  with a tendency towards large size  plant and animal growth.
These folks would be quite ancient, and set in their ways, much like China was for centuries and centuries.  They would be happy leading a low tech life, again, much like the Asians, perhaps the Tibetans.  
Theirs would be a culture emphasizing tradition, philosophy, geometry, astronomy, art, states-craft, various theologies.
The first few human encounters were friendly.  But some fool on the expedition did something to offend them, and we had to pack up and leave.  Oh well.  Stealth-bots can fill in on studying these folks, but it sure isn't as fun and rewarding as actually being there.

I don't know why, but I feel like this creature would be gentle, and I feel like it would live near oceans and swim out to catch a variety of ocean creatures... That's just the vibe i'm getting.

Soooo Ridley Scott-esk, gorgeous design. Would love to see this creature in a movie. Love how it's the size of a dinosaur. The size just adds to the creature. Love it.
