This fellow has one of my fist basic animation concepts. As the peg on the inside of the front wheel passes by the bottom of the jaw, it opens the gaping mouth, only to let it chomp shut a moment later. Very kinetic and satisfying. I use Cherry for most of my toys because it doesn’t splinter, it holds up and it is , of course, beautiful.
If you like this guy, I have a book coming out this summer with Fox Chapel press that will have this guy in it, along with 19 others. I also have a website where these bad boys are for sale. wildlife-toys.com
