gyrodactylus, dactylogyrus?

inspired by a discussion on frog parasites. i know it doesn't make any sense.

F. terranycteridae

It's been almost a month... school has been destroying me. I've been getting worse grades than I have ever earned, and it's frustrating!

This ^ is a mammal i just made up over the last month. It is of the family 'terranycteridae' - terra meaning, 'of the earth' and nycteris, 'bat forme'. it uses echolocation to find prey. it quite literally screams its head off while running after you. :) I'm not sure why i gave it bicusped canines or procumbent lower incisors, but we'll just go with it for now.

I've only gone through half a sketchbook since early february (as opposed to one every week and a half) if that gives anyone any scope of how much time i have had to myself. Don't give up on me, if i haven't kept in touch - jenn is in survival mode :<

I hope you all are well, if you are reading this!
