Actually this is a fantastic surprise Alannah, so much detail can be seen i never realized that they had hair? on here nose area and that view inside the mouth its rather disgusting to look at but i can't stop looking at it! Ah the colour to i really can't anything wrong with this, its just so nice and different i can't help but like the fact you are showing a range of animals rather then more foxes
:iconcheetahlaplz: More surprise animal please

They just had a little babyyyyyy! It's about 2weeks old, I hope I will be able to see. I doubt it will be out yet, but I can hope! =p

I never realised they had hair either, it's quite long too. I love how big their teeth are!

Will be at least one more unusual animal to come, I didn't even know it existed until I visited and saw it! It's in black and white too, so that should make you even happier ;)

Aaah such a lovely photo! Hippos have such odd teeth though.. almost looks as if their gums would hurt a lot.

It always looks like they shouldn't fit in the mouth, very odd!
