Illustration Friday: Emergency

Many things are Emergencies in out lives. Saving rare species should be one of them. An UnBook of rare Species. This one is so rare I don't even know what to call it.

Wow, that looks a lot like the Marsupial Lion that I saw on Nova's 'Bone Diggers' last night. He's said to have lived half a million years ago.

amazing idea!i'm agree with you it's an emergency issue...we, human, become over populated (^_^) while other species become rare.someday our children only see them in books or picture. and all we can tell to them "yes...once upon a time in a part in our planet there's a place called forest and lived there many tigers bla..bla...wonderful art work!!!!
