We named this guy "Poxy" because of his skin condition.
We call this guy "The Lion Thing" because I'm not quite sure what this legless, leopard spotted, lion-headed thing is supposed to be.
So I'm at Safeway last Saturday, and was picking up some chewstix in the pet aisle. I turned around to see if they had any good toys and I found 2 more from the Mutant Dog Toy Collection, so I had to get them.
Apparently these poor beasties seem to suffer from a genetic problem that renders them legless. With the exception of Poxy, none of them have legs. This li'l fella appears to be a raccoon suffering from severe hypothermia, right down to the tip of his ringed tail. We haven't quite settled on a name for it yet, but I've been calling him "Hypothermic Raccoonie Guy".
I'm open to suggestions on the species of this one. He has antlers, so is it a reindeer? Moose? Deer? Elk? I've never seen any of those animals with thick, long, ringed tails. Is he a cow? A bear with antlers and spots? Is it an okapi? A baby mountain tapir with a squished-in snout?
