Velvet Worm by WonderDookie Velvet Worm by WonderDookie
I've been busy with my masters research, but I thought it would be fun to do a quick drawing of a velvet worm, the creatures I have been studying, in the style of the ABC book that I made for my niece for Christmas - [link]

I'll be out in the cold looking for these again tomorrow too. Fun fun!

Enjoy!

haha. I think they always look cute! But I'm a bit biased, considering I have spent the last year of my life studying them.

Aren't they? I think that most people who study the velvet worms don't like to use the word "cute", that's I think that's the best word for them!

Thanks!

That's cool. I wasn't sure if that was a mythical creature, or an existing animal!

haha. They do look like something imaginary. They essentially evolved hundreds of millions of years ago, so they look nothing like most animals nowadays.

Thanks!

It's so cute, I want to be able to pat it without squishing and killing it.

You could if you patted it really really lightly. You definitely couldn't give it a big hug though.

You just made it look so cute. I love the little drool over there. The texture and shapes look great as well!

It's great to know your masters is going well! Congratulations on that, from one biologist to another :)

haha. Thanks! I actually think they are legitimately a bit cute. They look so silly with all of their little stubby legs.

Yeah. The masters has been going surprisingly well. It's costing a small fortune coming all the way down to New Zealand to work on it, but hopefully the investment will pay off in the end. I'm hoping I'll actually be able to publish the results of the research too!
