In Bavarian folklore, a wolpertinger (also called wolperdinger, poontinger or woiperdinger) is an animal said to inhabit the alpine forests of Bavaria in Germany. It has a body comprised from various animal parts generally wings, antlers, tails and fangs, all attached to the body of a small mammal. The most widespread description is that of a horned rabbit or a horned squirrel.

Awesome to see a Wolpertinger! I wanted to do one but ended up using another mythical creature in the end..
I really like the round design and I'd totally wear this so you got my vote

I wonder if they were based on the same thing jackalopes were (rabbits with that weird horn disease)? Anyway wolpertinger is a great word and this is a great design :meow:
