Critter of the Week: Ichthyosaurus

Meet Flipper.  He’s a happy-go-lucky critter who likes to play.  He’ll do just about anything to get you wet and in the pool, so be sure to wear your swim suit around him!  Bonus points if you happen to have a treat of fish. 😉


Flipper the Ichthyosaurus


I got quite a bit done around the site this week.  Mostly small tweaks that no one will ever see, but will help the site be more easily found.  That’s always a good thing.  No good having a website if I’m invisible. 🙂  I also got a few pictures up!  My dear Hubby and I had a lot of fun taking the pictures over the weekend.

I know I promised hopefully two critters this week, but I’ve had a couple of set backs.  So soon in the game, and already delays!  D:  ‘Tis the way of the things.  🙂

The computer I do most of my work on won’t turn on.  It’s the only one with Photoshop, the art program I use for my illustrations, so it’s definitely a set back.  No worries though!  That doesn’t mean I won’t update!  Dear Hubby is letting me use his laptop for these posts, and I’ll just have to do the illustrations the old-fashioned way.  🙂

So I have little Juramaia (I’ll call her Maya) ready and waiting for her que.  🙂  She’ll look different than the others so far.  I’m not sure I can get the same profile effect I have on the other profile pictures, but I’ll have her come out to meet you anyway.  Then I can fix her to look like the others (text, footprint, etc…) once I have my poor computer up and running again.  🙂

So little Maya will see you next week!  In the meantime, take a quick jog over to the about page and check out the new picture. 🙂

  1. It looks neat! So did ichthyosaurus eat fish, like a prehistoric dolphin?
    I hope all the turbulence calmed down soon, as I’m sure it will.


    1. Yes! Coprolites (fossil dno poo) of these critters have been found with the remains of fish and squid. 🙂

      Thank you for the kind comment. I’m sure this will all blow over soon. 🙂


  2. Thank you, I’m quite pleased at his shiny wetness too!

    Thank you for the well wishes. I hope things get resolved soon, but there’s always a bit of turbulence on every flight. All part of the learning experience. 🙂


  3. Aw, I can’t stand it when your computer decides to fail on you all of a sudden. At least you managed to finish ichthyosaurus, though (I like his shinies)! 🙂 Hopefully things will get back in order soon.
    Also, nice pictures! I’m looking forward to seeing Maya. ^^
