A to Z Challenge: Animals

Post by Gravy » 01 Jan 2019, 00:38

A to Z challenges are pretty straight forward. Just fill out the alphabet with the required category, in this case, ANIMALS.

Example:
Ardvark for A
Bat for B
Cat for C


You must find the animal in a book you read. Please provide the name of the book and let us know where in the book you found it.

Also, the animal should be real and recognized as such. No using yeti for Y, or dragon for D... ;)

*For Q, U, X, Y, and Z, you can substitute an animal which just has the letter in the name.
Example: Fox for X

Have fun!

We are temporary creatures, and we know it--that's why we fear the dark, after all, that's why we build walls and light candles to keep it out.
