Accompanied by Rhea, Brazilian Tapir, Capybara and of course my partner Mara!
The Patagonian hare ..... !!!

Here is the photograph which I am inspired.  study  scratch



Et voici le rongeur  après l'ébauche, il doit encore sècher à l'air .............et faire quelques retouches !  Surprised  Mad

I am very glad you decided to make such an interesting species. Very Happy
Maras have everything to be ignored by brands. First they're quite unknown, then, they look like hares but they are enough different. So what will people think when seeing a mara toy? - "What a bad work did this brand, this hare is very weird." Eh, I am trying to guess what people could think seeing a branded mara, not commenting your figure. Very Happy
Longer legs were desired in your figure but it will cause a lot of problem and turn the figure too fragile. It is very recognizable, thus a great work. Very Happy I wished a lot a brand was as immaginative as you are. cheers

Great choice of species JeanLuc! And very nice works!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I think these mares maras (gosh, the autocorrect is so annoying sometimes) are really amazing animals, so unique sunny

As far as I remember they belong to Rodents and not to Lagomorphs like hares, aren't they? study But then, they are indeed called Patagonian hares Laughing

Also they have  quite advanced social life, they organise some kind of nursery for all young ones from the group so most of the adults goes grazing and only few adults stay with babies, later they change the shift. So they are not only interesting looking creatures but also very smart  Very Happy   rabbit

I'm looking forward to see these two painted! cheers

These are neat sculpts, good you chose an obscure species. They are related to Guinea pigs and capybaras.

Wonderful maras family! Very Happy I continue thinking that maras are very interesting species, wasn't it great for a children to learn in early age that hares are not rodents but there are some rodents that look like hares? Laughing
