For anyone who is curious, two of the new hybrid animals I had on display at Constructor are now posted on my Etsy store: the Tarsnail and the Seacock.

I’ll be posting the Mousegonfly and a couple of other new pieces later on this week.

You know that, unlike other living things, the aforementioned platyrabbis (see the last post) didn’t actually evolve over time.   Rather, two separate animals evolved, in two very remote areas of the world.  And then they made their way into my mind, and one day, they collided.  The result:
