Alphabet Series – “G” is for

It’s looking like while the semester is full-on, my alphabet posts will be every two weeks! I’m just glad I can still fit it in and also work on my surface pattern collection development 🙂 G… is for Gharial! And grapes, although the gharial is a carnivore (details, details). The gharial is a crocodilian native to the Indian subcontinent and is sadly critically endangered. They have a very long narrow jaw and the males have a hollow bulbous growth that develops on the end of their snouts. Apparently it allows them to make a hissing noise that can be heard from a kilometer away! They aren’t normally very fun colors so I took some creative liberties here.
Psst! I’m also part of a monthly blog link up organized by the awesome Linda at Tortagialla, check out the monthly round up of all the other fabulous artists here!
