Name The Critter


Hello, all!

So, last week I made this creature.  


Before I was asked to make this (it's a gift for the friend of one of my kids), I had never heard of it. And when I'd finished it, I wondered if the recipient would even be able to identify it. So thought I'd ask you guys if you could tell what it was. Anyone want to take a shot? I'll reveal the answer before the end of the week.

  2. That looks like something out of my more surreal dreams. It’s cute though! Can’t wait to find out what it is…

  3. Hi LiEr.
    I am guessing the little creature is a koala bear, it was tricky to guess as his face was not visible. I shall wait and see.
    All the best

  6. Looks like a muskrat to me. Captain and Tennille had a song "muskrat love" that I listened to endlessly as a child.

  7. Is it a sloth, or maybe a koala? Very cute anyway!

  10. Hmm no idea, but if you didn't know the annimal I probably don't either!

  11. Hmm...real or fictional? I'm guessing a nutria. They're invasive so I guess not hearing of them would be a good thing!

  12. My first thought was Quoll or Quokka

  13. I think one was under my bed last night. But maybe I'm wrong. It might have been the cat...

  14. My first thought was groundhog.

  15. It certainly looks Australian - I think the quokka would be most likely. And a great choice for a stuffed toy, they are super cute.

  16. I thought wombat but that brought up a quokka in a google search…new to me. But definitely looks like a quokka. I also just recently learned there are pink dolphins in the Amazon.

  17. I'm going to guess chinchilla, too

  18. I am voting quokka, but I first thought it might be a potoroo from the tail. Australian animals are adorable :-) Hello from sunny Adelaide!
