One Legged Animal Friday

I went to the zoo some time ago, and am still remembering
how nifty these guys were!

Can anyone tell me the name of this particular animal?

very beautifully done! you know, I still can't remember the names of these guys, even though I've been going to the zoo for years...AND even after I stole a peak of their name on your computer. We must go again!

I think it's a gazelle, Marco!

i went to the santa ana zoo a few years ago and there were coins all over the alligator's head from people throwing shit, trying to get him to move around.

Karen: We have.. and we will!

Michele: Nope, sorry.

anonymous elizabeth: It's true... people are complete idiots when it comes to viewing the animals. One thing I've learned is that if you really want the alligators to move around, simply toss in a few lightly salted children's fingers.

I have no idea what kind of animal it is but I'd love to see it hop around ...and fall. I like how you made the eye kinda bulge-y in the original sketch. You make such excellent shapes in yo' drawings.

Are you talking about those scary deer that stand on their hind legs and regurgitate plant matter? With super-long necks?
Those things are creepy.

Is it the mighty Unilope? No? Maybe it's just an impala who's been hit by a jeep.

Kristen: Thank you, but I think that's mostly just me pretending to be Jeff Pidgeon without really knowing what I'm doing.

Anne and Ryan: I think Anne is describing the animal this is supposed to be a drawing of. I don't think I came very close to capturing the creepiness, though.

Anyway, the answer I was looking for all along was 'Andrew'!

it's a dinosaur

Jane: I can't either!
Two Toe Tuesday
will surely change the course of blogging

Miss Withers: As of last April, this was a mammal
and still walked among us.
Commonly referred to
in both bath houses and pool halls as
a gerenuk.
Regardless, I'd like to strongly advise
that you seek out a reputable optometrist
post haste.
