Alright, it’s been a few days and I’ve had a few guesses about the mystery shrink-wrapped animal.
Yes, it was a mammal.
No, it wasn’t a fox or any kind of cat.
But since I had so much fun with this thing, you guys can have a shrink-wrapped fox and lion anyway.
The fox gets a tiny amount of token hair on the head and back, similar to the “cop-out” method of feathering dinosaurs — which involves putting the barest tufts onto an otherwise still entirely bald and scaly animal.
And as a large predator, the lion was obviously a gnarly-looking monster with lots of spikes and almost armoured hide. :P
