Enigmatic RoosterHippo by beastofoblivion Enigmatic RoosterHippo by beastofoblivion
Bwak bwak.


Melding animals is like making cookies - it's fun, delicious, and makes me feel like an artistic fatass. Mmm cookies.

Interesting beasty that reminds me of some really off the wall rooster cartoons I've seen somewhere... I know they were more of the straight "giant-chicken" variety, but melty, if you've ever seen the style. Still, fun work.

What does a rooster hippo eat anyway? Water worms?

That is pretty fecking awesome...and not two animals that I would have thought to combine. :O_o: I would not want to meet one of these in a dark alley...or anywhere else for that matter.
