Partition the grid into disjoint “creatures”​, according to the following rules:

  1. Each creature is defined as a shape of 4 connected branches that are each 1 cell wide.
  2. For each creature, one of the branches ends up with a HEAD (always clued) and the other three branches end up with LIMBS (whenever clued, their directions matter).
  3. A creature can never occupy a 2×2 region of cells and can never touch itself.

Examine the first example, then solve the other three puzzles.

The solutions are shown below.
