Amazing Animals: VULPESAFFA AVELOPARDALIS/GIROXIRD

Amazing Animals: VULPESAFFA AVELOPARDALIS/GIROXIRD
Photo Description:
Etching Print, 17 x 22 cm Students have studied the depiction of animals in art history focusing on Albrecht Durer’s rhinoceros print which he made in 1515. Durer never actually saw the rhinoceros he drew, from this students have invented animals which may or may not have ever existed. The students made an etching of their amazing animal and hand coloured some using drawing inks. VULPESAFFA AVELOPARDALIS/GIROXIRD by Ellie Shim This amazing animal is named the giroxird, also known as the vulpesaffa avelopardalis. It is an anti-social and ferocious animal, despite its gentle looks. It gets extremely angry when other animals try to steal its food. The giroxird’s diet usually consists of zebra meat. Giroxirds issue warnings to other animals by sticking their wings up like hedgehogs spikes. It is from this that there are some theories that the ancestors of this creature are actually closer to a hedgehog than to a fox.
