nanofishology:

Highlights from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science’s “Extreme Mammals” exhibit. A great look at how evolution resulted in tons of diversity within mammalian species. Did you know one of the defining characteristics of mammals is the three bones in our inner ears? All mammals have these!

there aren’t enough posts going around about the swedish cryptid known as the skvader which is a rabbit with pheasant wings and also a very good boy.

like this one dude just made a fake taxidermy and spread it around as a hoax for a good ass while and it lead to this really cool fantasy creature and i am genuinely dissapointed that it never gets used in anything

THE BOY

Rabbirds, by the amazing @tkingfisher/Ursula Vernon (source).  

The lack of skvaders is particularly frustrating when you realize it forms the third point of a wonderful cryptid trifecta.

You got the jackalopes, which are rabbits with antlers.

And you got the wolpertingers, which are rabbits with antlers and wings.

And then… what? Do you escalate? That’s unbalanced, those two rabbit cryptids don’t have the same number of extra things, the wolpertinger is clearly the jackalope But More.

BUT with the skvader on the other side, balance is restored. Antler rabbit, winged rabbit, winged antler rabbit. It’s a classic Venn diagram of imaginary lapine beasts, and it’s only complete if you acknowledge the fucking skvader.

Good thing Ursula’s got our back, at least.

This is a really excellent point and I applaud your advancements in Cryptid Theory.

I don’t care if these aren’t real, I am living for these snuggly mourning dove buns and this is going in the nature blog, dammit!!!

Officially the clumsiest taxidermist every. My pinning board isn’t big enough for this beast so his wings slope down a bit.

First attempt at relaxing and pinning these beauties. I don’t think I did too badly. They’re a bit damaged as the postie is a bit of an ass.
