Pink thing status: saccharine

I generally try, at least in theory, not to go for "cute". I am trying to go for something at least somewhat scientific. The process of making creturs makes me familiar with their structure and details, and I want to transmit to the viewer some of the learning experience of it. The hyenas are kind of forcedly cute because they are so small; details like toes get blurred out in the scale and details like sex organs (fascinating as hyenas' sex organs are) are kind of censored in the spirit of a G rating. But then there's critters like the axolotl, around the cuteness of which there is no way.

Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum)
