Contest ends in:
or to participate in this contest.

People have been mixing species via Photoshop since its early existence! It's one of those classic Photoshop contests from the mid-2000s.

We've had many such contests on Pxleyes, here is an example from 3 years ago: Animal mashup 2018

Which was won by user 'skyangel', with the following entry:

Winner of the animal mash-up PS contest on Pxleyes: skyangel
— Winner of the animal mash-up PS contest on Pxleyes: skyangel —

Let's keep this almost cliche type of photoshopping alive! Both software and hardware have evolved drastically over the years, and the possibilities of mixing species, are endless.

Your goal is to mix two or more species of animal into 1. This is your chance to play God and craft your own ultimate animal! What are its strengths? Weaknesses? How does it survive? Where does it live? Write a little story around your creation if you wish. At a minimum, think of a great name for your species. It's your creation, you can name it!

List your sources in a reply to your entry. You can make links clickable by placing them within square brackets.

Don't forget to vote and give feedback to other entries, so we can support each other. Let the most creative new animal win!

Good luck!

No, I don't think dog ears would work simply because it would drown out the "human" completely. The way this was done is very tastefully a great blend and reminds me of my boss who sounded like a dog most all the time. Thumbs up.

Is this creature the offspring of a canine and Homosapien? I know many people love dogs but....???? I better not go into the kind of relationships we should refrain from in case I offend some lovers. ( All in good humor.) :-) Anyway, does this unusual but friendly-looking Homocanine have a name? Huclaudiky ? Weilyman? What language does it speak? I am always interested in how to communicate with canines but it would be even more interesting if this creature can speak both canine and human since it would easily be able to interpret between its parent species. https://www.theawl.com/2011/11/how-to-talk-to-your-dog/

This creature looks like it is wondering what you are doing in its territory taking photos of it. Were you in a diving cage at the time so that no unusual creatures could harm you or were you just in the open ocean with your camera? Is the creature dangerous to humans? I need to know in case I ever see one when I am swimming. Should I leave the water immediately or is it safe to stay near this creature? ;-)

This animal obviously did not want to hear whatever you were saying to it. Therefore it must be very independent and maybe even untrainable if it won't to listen to commands? Can it talk back at all or does it simply ignore any attempts at communication? Is it called a Dogape or an Apedoggy or maybe it has another unusual name?

It seems flygoos are very tiny and like to hover around flowers. Was it trying to hide and you managed to sneak around to the side it was hiding on to take its photo? They must hide well since I have never seen one in real life but they must really exist since here in Australia they have an airline with a flying kangaroo logo on its tail. ;-)

Hi there. It's good to see your work again. Are those blue antennas for sensing any alien predators or for something else? I suspect his hearing and sight would be excellent. He can obviously see something yummy to eat in the distance since he is licking his chops in anticipation of a great meal. Hopefully, he is not going to eat one of the creatures displayed on this site? ;-)

They come in various sizes but I have never come across one larger than a person. Mostly they are about the size of a large duck. Maybe because they have duck genes. You can tell by the webbed feet. They are not known to be native to any country because they are so rare but they have been spotted on a few of the uninhabited islands on Earth, mainly by explorers who have made it their profession to find unusual creatures. The average person would most likely never see one unless they went on a special trip with a professional explorer. ;-)
