You Are A: Bear Cub!

bear cubBears are strong and independent creatures who roam in the forest in search of food. Bears are usually gentle, but anger one and be prepared for their full fury! You're big, you won't back down from a fight -- classic attributes of a bear. Intelligent and resourceful, though lazy at times, you are a fascinating creature of the wild.

You are least like a: Chipmunk or a DucklingWhat Cute Animal Are You?

prosthetic makeup test

I hadn't received my shipment from Smooth-On yet. I ordered the silicone prosthetic adhesive from them, since I don't have any, as well as a blood pigment. The order should have been here by now, so I called.
