Amazon River Dolphin by SadDaysCrochet Amazon River Dolphin by SadDaysCrochet
Amazon River Dolphin! This highly endangered dolphin lives in fresh water and looks kinda creepy. Seriously- that lump on its head is a thing they have. Also some of them are pink! Like this. Ooh, and they can rotate their heads 180 degrees!

So I guess I got a little too into this November Challenge thing for :iconnationalyarnographic:. I wasn't sure if I wanted to make this or the tapir, but I decided on the tapir (). Then I had a few hours to kill and wanted to try out my new crochet utility sleeve (), so I made this too.

I recently discovered thumbnails, as maybe you can tell- am I going overboard?

The eyes are beads, which is strange for me but worked well. There's a little needle-sculpting to get the head bump and the back fin right. All one piece! Had fun working out how to make fins.

This piece will also be a prize for some future contest in :iconnationalyarnographic:! Because enthusiasm for crocheting obscure animals is worth more to me than the money I could sell this for. :heart:

Maybe I should... I figured you'd all put it into a google image search. Here's a good picture of how super weird they are: [link] I highly suspect it has been color edited though.

I googled it myself =P. I've just noticed that a lot of people would rather click a link, and a lot of artists provide "reference" links in their descriptions. :)
