Here's my last-minute entry:

Leptictidium, which means graceful or delicate weasel, was around 50 - 40 million years ago. A little hopping creature about the size of a cat, similar to today's Elephant Shrew.







I decided to make it because I love animals with long snouts, and I have some little fact cards from the series Walking With Beasts (http://www.abc.net.au/beasts/factfiles/factfiles/leptictidium.htm?picNum=1.jpg), one of which has Leptictidium on it. I think they're really cute, and I think I'll call mine Leptik for short.

Ah! Yours is so much more adorable than the one from Walking With Beasts. I choose to believe that when these little guys were alive, they looked just like the one you made Cheesy

I love him! Especially the little doo dads on his bum. Excellent interpretation.
