Animals and animation are linked by more than just the Latin origin “anima.” All animals, like anime or other forms of animation characters, have specific characteristics. Naturally, one starts to picture how the animals would look as animated characters. Nitro, a Korean artist known as byeongju.a on Instagram, satisfies this craving by blending the two and creating unexpected results.
If they were in an anime series, how would they fit in? Or maybe a new anime series featuring all of them would be made? In any case, the characters are intriguing for a reason: the artist is an expert at conjuring different personalities out of thin air. Do you have any reservations?

Northern Bald Ibis
Nitro’s effort has an unanticipated benefit that we don’t believe he realised. His OCs (original characters) raise awareness about endangered wildlife species. Black leopards, for example, are rapidly losing territory, while northern bald ibises, which are native to Syria, are becoming extinct.Hunting and habitat destruction have resulted in their extinction in the wild. Cheetahs, East African lions, Damascus goats, macaroni penguins, and crested black macaques, among the other species mentioned in this essay, are all critically endangered.
