I was laying in my bed when one idea led to another and I found myself thinking about an animal. Not an animal that is alive or extinct, but an animal that I made up. I decided to call this creation Oliver. “Why Oliver?” you might be thinking, well because Oliver is a cute name that I usually associate with something obscure or odd.
His proportions and size were the same as a full-grown lion. His face, tail and torso were like a Chinese dragon that had the fins of a Crowntail betta down its back, at the tip of its tail and on his elbows. Oliver’s feet were dark grey and webbed like duck feet, but the legs were furry and patterned like a fawn’s back. The hands were lion paws with the same white spotted fawn pattern.
