The Book

The Cowbatross and Other Very Real Creatures is a bestiary & coloring book that'll make you laugh while teaching you about Very Real Animals like the smoth, the narwhallaby, and more!

This illustrated field guide features a selection of almost certainly real* actual* mammals, insects, birds, reptiles, and other creatures from across the globe, each with potentially scientifically accurate*, probably true* facts about each creature and highly detailed line drawings of each animal in its entirely plausible natural habitat.

* All claims of accuracy, factuality, and reality are nearly wholly fallacious. These creatures are actually entirely made up, with scientific sounding facts that only faintly resemble things which are true.
