So now that this wonderful book is out in the world it’s time to have a coloring contest! Are you ready for some coloring fun, and a chance to win some store credit? I want to start this out with one of the least known but certainly amazing species in the book, the Lowland Streaked Tenrec. These Madagascar natives look like something between a hedgehog and a shrew. They are only about 5 inches long, with a long snout and spiky quills- with special sound making skills. Also are super cute!
The Art: This festive image shows two Lowland Streaked Tenrecs sharing an earthworm, almost like they’re dancing. Who can enter? This contest has kids in mind, but all ages can enter.
