Another Alien - Venus

This one is a Venusian described as follows:

...he met the native galloping along on his four short legs, his pincerlike hands shearing a path for him.

[skip some non-descriptive stuff]

humans can't read the expressions of the broad, flat, three-eyed Venusian faces, which in the nature of things must convey a world of information among the natives themselves.

And that, unfortunately is all that we get in two stories set on Venus.

Not sure that this is what Weinbaum had in mind, but it's what I ended up with

Any thoughts? A small prize (I'll name an alien parasite after you or something) for anyone who correctly identifies at least four of the biological components that went into this one.

Later: Well, no one person got four, but from head downwards

Head = kiwi fruit
Eyes = actually drawn by me!
Mouth = lamprey
Body = Clove of garlic
arms = Fiddler crab
legs = Asparagus
