•About this Critter•

A Nocturnal, hog-like creature with ill fitting, warty skin, often met by hunters in the Pennsylvania mountainside, said to be so ugly that its painful to stare at it for too long. [and it knows it too.] – Often Called ‘The most morbid of creatures’ as its tears seem to be somewhat acidic when exposed to the air: (as such it’s likely also in constant pain… ) Hunters who tracked it on cold nights said that if it was surprised, it would instantly break down into a myriad of tears, dissolving itself to an offal puddle of tears & bubbles… (it seems to be unknown if this actually kills the creature or not.) it is known to leave puddles of tear stains behind itself as it goes, it avoids drinking water in hopes that it wont accidentally see itself…

- Another ‘Fearsome Critter’ from “Fearsome creatures of the lumberwoods.” [1910] appearing again in [1939] (where it took on a much different appearance) & soon after mentioned again with the original description in the famous [1957] “Book of imaginary beings” -

Despite the sad description, the Squonk seems to be ‘the 70s rockstars choice’ of fearsome critter: as it gets mentioned quite often in 70’s music! The Squonk gets a brief mention in steely dans “Any Major Dude Will Tell You’ (1974) & ‘’Genesis’ (1976) also pays tribute to the Squonk in a song all about the creatures sad, sad life.

My take: this one was a fun challenge, I wanted to make him kinda hard to look at for too long…
