The latest in my series of animals made of text, a seal. For the landscape, I used Inkscape’s spraypaint tool to paint with a square made with the rectangle tool.
“Pinnipeds (/ˈpɪnᵻˌpɛdz/) (from Latin pinna “fin” and pes, pedis “foot”), commonly known as seals,[a] are a widely distributed and diverse clade of carnivorous, fin-footed, semiaquatic marine mammals. They comprise the extant families Odobenidae (whose only living member is the walrus), Otariidae (the eared seals: sea lions and fur seals), and Phocidae (the earless seals, or true seals). There are 33 extant species of pinnipeds, and more than 50 extinct species have been described from fossils. While seals were historically thought to have descended from two ancestral lines, molecular evidence supports them as a monophyletic lineage (descended from one ancestral line). Pinnipeds belong to the order Carnivora and their closest living relatives are bears and musteloids (weasels, raccoons, skunks and red pandas), having diverged about 50 million years ago.” – Pinniped – Wikipedia from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinniped
