A good idea, and I'll look into that.
New edition of this will be out for .22 soon, however, and I won't have time to get to that quite yet.

What I understand by your meaning is rearranging internal body parts to be correctly configured?

Internal and external, right. As an example, I made a canine/generic quadruped one yesterday:

Here's some of the current updates I've been working on.
Shifted appearance variations into a new file
Added horn, tusk, and udder BDPs in order to help shortcut adding the respective body parts to single castes.
Expanded the list of possible attacks somewhat.
Added the additional body parts as introduced by the most recent versions of DF
Added new body part: nose slits for beaks and bills, so that such creatures don't need a separate nose, as that is just ridiculous. This has been added to the quick body items for the bird faces, and the entire bird templates.

Still intend to add the BP Positions before next release, as striking when the iron is hot seems like the best idea.

Edit: Additionally limited body hair so it grows on the backs of hands and fingers, and the tops of feet and toes. Feathers got a similar treatment. No more hairy palms!

Edit #2: Also looking for suggestions for BDPs to add to make caste specific body parts less of a hassle.

Has anyone used this mod to change the creatures in vanilla to more realistic and varied forms?

I like fortresses because they are still underground.

I have. The currently available version of Legendary Lands has most critters, apart from some of the underground ones I didn't like and just replaced.
However, I don't think it has eggs in there yet.... so I'll have to upload a new copy soon.

Hmm... good to know.

I wait eagerly with baited breath.  That, and maybe work on it a bit myself to see if I can just add eggs in as placeholders so I can stop attacking being attacked by humanoid after humanoid after humanoid creature that's supposed to be wildlife.

Today I added every inorganic material as a creature variation, to allow it to be added to a creature as a local copy in that manner.
