Bosavi Woolly Rat

Hi everyone,

Today it's time to introduce you to the Bosavi Woolly Rat. This big fluffy rodent was discovered last year on the island of Papua New Guinea (possibly my most favorite bit of the world). I simply just had to crochet this large critter.
I attempted to make it life size, but since this is very difficult in the first place, I ended up with a slightly larger rodent. Anyway, who says all of them are 82 cm, when you've only measured one. My creation is 95 cm long, including tail.
He's got poseable legs and lentils in his body for added weight.
He took me a full week to make, so not too bad actually. I especially had fun crocheting with the fluffy wool, I always hear people say it's difficult to crochet with, but I had no trouble at all. Ok I couldn't see my stitches, but since I don't count that's no problem.
This rat is a gift to my brother in return for a favor ^_^
Ow and the little poser on the top is one of my rats, Haru.
