I love embroidery that looks like a drawing. This is an awesome example of that. I am not completely sure what animal this is from. Anyone who knows?

  2. Yeah, the teeth have "rodent" written all over them. I love it.

  3. It's the skull of an Urogale everetti, or the Philippine Tree Shrew. It's not classified as a rodent, but as a primate...like moneys and humans. It has human-like ears, and tiny five-fingered hands like a very small, skinny baby's.
    We had thousands of them living in the coconut palms around our house in El Nido, Palawan. The cats caught this one, and we saved the skull.
    Glad you (sort of) liked it!
