On a distant planet located on the outskirts of the constellation Cassiopeia, Superman found this unique little species dwelling in the sewers of an alien city.
This example is a fully grown, approximately 2 years old female. Approx 20cm in height (8inches) with a tail length to match.
She is small for her kind. The male of the species can reach 35cm tall/long which rivals a good sized tom cat.
The bulk of her kind have similar markings on their fur. Namely black, and two shades of grey stripes and patches.
I made this rodent fully poseable with ball and socket joints.
She has a disgusting rat's tail. Urggh...
Her feet are almost amphibian, which helps her move quickly through her sewer environment.
Although she is a docile and naturally curious rodent, one should never assume her tame. Her claws are long and sharp and her teeth will chew through just about anything that gets in her way. Her species are scavengers and they spend a lot of the day above ground in parks and will hang around you if you are eating, hoping for a tasty morsel... but do not feed her... her nest is made predominantly of children's fingertips.
It makes me think of 'The Secret of Nimh'. Such a dark and creepy kid's movie, that I absolutely loved, and it reminds me of Jenner, the bad rat that killed Nicodemus, when he and Justin are fighting in the rain. Cool build.~H
Quoting Matthew Novosad
Hopefully they find his brother (who is in a shelter), because we will be adopting him, because the two don't deserve to be apart.
I really really hope you find Avery so he can go into a loving home. You sound like you have a wonderful family who just adores animals and would do whatever it takes to keep them safe and happy. All the best Matthew, Saturday, Yoda and Avery :)
The parts usage is amazing!! Great job! I hope your team wins! BTW Remember that cat I told you about? Well, he likes our house and is very comfortable. He has a brother (named Avery) that we are trying to find. This is really a favor for my Aunt's friend, who got kicked out of her house and they just took her animals. We sprung for the opportunity for many reasons, but most importantly, he needs a home that can love him. Hopefully they find his brother (who is in a shelter), because we will be adopting him, because the two don't deserve to be apart.
