Adorable but Deadly!

One of the world’s most bizarre animals is called the Hispaniolan Solenodon.

It looks a little bit like an overgrown shrew – it’s quite big, has a long thin snout and can attack passing insects with its deadly poisonous bite!

This nocturnal animal can only be found in two countries of the world: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Researchers say more needs to be done to protect these creatures as they are under threat from deforestation and hunters.

{I don't know much about Outertale, so pardon me if I get this wrong, but it takes place in space, right? You'll have to help me a bit. .} (("Um... Ok!" Papyrus accepts the sketchbook, opening it to a fresh page. "What do I do first?"))

"I'm fine, but thank you for the offer though!" Blue said happily, looking up for a moment, before continuing his work. (the story seems to be going nowhere in Underswap... a suggestion of visiting Outertale has been given)  (PunMaster smiled. "It's not too hard. You just have to practice. Want me to show you?" She offered)

{Oh. Well. I had hoped we could've done something with that... but, nvm then.} (Just saying, when a Sans uses a "short-cut", I like to pretend they creates a wormhole that goes into the void. Iron teleports, which is him warping space and time to make himself be in another place. He uses this power to also travel to other universes.)  When I saw nothing in that infinite nothing, I returned to my-... No, their house. I could smell spices and meat cooking, the scent wafting from an open window. ​I teleported into the kitchen to see Blue, as he had said, cooking tacos. ​"Need any help?" I had been cooking for myself most of the time, since I was almost never at home with Paps, so I had acquired some skill in the matter. ((Papyrus begins to see his face etched into the paper. "Wow! You're amazing! I-.. I couldn't do anything like that..."))

Papyrus was indeed not in the void. He'd been in the middle of teleporting to his room.  (She didn't respond for a little bit, erasing a few ghost like lines that worked as the original faint outline. "Us." She responded)

In the blink of an eye-socket, I had scanned the entire underground, blinking in and out of reality to check every possible location. ​He wasn't there. ​I checked the only other place left, teleporting into the infinite black that is the void. "Hello? Papyrus? Please tell me you're not in here. Did I miss you somewhere?" ​(("What are you drawing?" Papyrus couldn't tell from the early sketch.))
