What should I name this gal/guy?

I made it from found bones of deer, raccoon, ducks and possibly something else.
The back is made from a deer skull, and two duck keels, one adult, one young. The neck is deer vertebra, and the head is a raccoon skull. Those are the most notable ones.

It's for now, a WIP, because I'm torn between it being a lochness monster-type thing, or a dragon, or what. If it ends up being a dragon, I'll find bits of bone acceptable for toes/wing bones.

And when I've decided, I'm gonna gesso the frontside of the canvas and paint what it may have looked like when it was alive.

Opinions either way?

Pretty cool, I've also made a creature from assembling bones. :) Have you done any more to this since you've uploaded it?

Very neat
I haven't done any more to this particular one, though I've almost completed a second one!

Have you got your assembled creature uploaded here on DA?

Ah, very impressive!
How on earth did you get hot glue to actually stick to bone? For some reason I never dare it because it seems like it wouldn't want to hold

Hm it worked fine for me. But the end of the tail broke off a while ago, I don't remember if it was from the glue getting weak or something hit it hard enough.. Everything else seems to be holding fine though. I put together a skeleton that was a lot bigger than that with hot glue before, and the smaller parts are getting loose. I think hot glue would be better for the bigger or more porous areas and super glue for the smaller ones.

That's good advice. Maybe using hot glue to get the large pieces to stay in place and then using something like an epoxy glue to keep it stable would be a good plan?
I've been trying to figure out how to put a seagull skeleton together, and I've been at a loss for what adhesive to use. This might be my solution. Thanks!
