Leroy the Limes Giraffaroo by CloverCoin Leroy the Limes Giraffaroo by CloverCoin
A cute critter I adopted from :iconpaexiedust:!

This is Leroy.

He's not exactly awkward, but not exactly suave either...
One would consider him paranoid. Sneaky. He likes to blend into the background. He would prefer to crawl along the ground or duck into bushes or hide behind trees and watch everyone intently.

Just imagine being out in the woods in a tent camping, you open it up to look outside into the darkness... and all you see are two creepy bright orange eyes staring back at you in the night. Freaky right?

Because he's ever so watchful, he is suspicious it's actually really easy to spook him. He nearly jumps at anything unexpected. He does not like being teased or spooked for fun and will stomp and huff in a fit.

The worst thing ever is to call him a "Yellow Belly". Which means to be scared, to bait him into something he doesn't want to do. It's almost always a dare when someone calls him that for not wanting to do something or avoiding something. Drives him NUTS.

RIGHT it was really hard I almost didn't get him but I kept going back "Shoot he is actually cute." "Wow he's so sleek..." "LOOK AT THEM HORNS..." "that tail...." Just ahhh I finally gave in. I can't believe I caught this silly adoptable bug, I never adopt anything!!!

Thank you so much! ;u; Hopefully she keeps adopting out more, I'd love it if these two giffyroo's had someone to play with! <3

They are just really really cute, gooosh I've fallen to the adoptabug frenzy!

OH I LOVE THOSE TOO! They are just so so cute and I kind of wanted an ape/monkey character for a while so seeing them as an option just seems so perfect and fun! GOSH I'm out of money now too so I totally feel your pain.. ; ; Leroy ate up my last paypal-dime.

Well in the mean time I'll just share Leroy with you, +Plops him in your lap.+ :l

Thanks so much! I hate just posting a picture without giving a little pinch of depth to the character - I haven't had a lot of time with him yet so I just sat down and kept typing until it sounded good. :D
