It obviously must be based on the Middle-eastern honey-sucking bird Cinnyris osea, not on a New World hummingbird!
Perhaps some sort of space warping magic was used to bring them there. Also, haven’t we seen a drawing of this before?
We have, in the Know Your Gryphons sticker sheet on Kory’s Plesiostore.
Also there was this RQ in November 2013
Now we need to see this RQ answer and the previous RQ answer posed together for scale!
Humminmouse gryphon: *buzzes down, lands on beak of Haasprotodon gryphon* *cute gaze…* ♥
Haasprotodon gryphon: …Cute! ♥
Humminmouse gryphon: ♥ ^v^
This full form Bugbear RQ will give an idea of the size an average diprotodon could be.
Yes, there were larger.
O_O…….. That is one BIG bugbear. Imagine coming across THAT in the back of a cave.

They live in cereal boxes. Your cereal boxes. In your cupboard.
I wonder if the hummingbird/mouse gryphons are the root cause for the stories of the fae?
Would a hummingird/mouse gryphon be capable of abducting people?
If they did it together…
The smallest actual combo would be with an Etruscan shrew. World’s Smallest Mammal!
For the bird part, if a bat is acceptable (yeah I know they’re not birds, but they’re flying vertebrates, close enough), then the bumblebee bat would be perfect. They’re even smaller than the bee hummingbird!
Still wondering where Stanley comes from, but this is a good page
Kory, what did a younger Django look like?
The more I look at it the more I wonder how the hell do they wear medallions in the first place? (if Leah is any indication the gryphon medallions seem to be generic enough to work on the uncommon ones)
Hope this isn’t too intrusive of a question if it hits some story beats, has Wonderland always been separated from the reality we all see, zany in its lack of order, and colorful ever since it was established as a country, a land, a world, what?
Hey Bloodcarver, did you, by chance, choose your own name?
That is probably spoilers
