CONTEST!!!

A sneak preview of my latest creation!
Can you guess what it is???

I know it's a plushie, but what IS IT???

All correct answers will be entered into a drawing to win one of my baby monsters:
Names will be written on slips of paper, placed in a bowl, and chosen at random by my roomate. The baby monster will be chosen at random by me.

Just comment on this post with your guess (please be as specific as possible), along with either your etsy name or your email address so I may contact you if you win.

Ends at 8pm (EST) Wednesday (3/12) Good luck!

*edit* Thankfully, a NICE HONEST PERSON alerted me that when you click on the picture, it gave the filename, which included the name of the thing. I was wondering why I was getting so many confident guesses. So the filename is changed.

I'm not very good at guessing bugs (although I can tell you for sure it's not a Giant Millipede, I've had those . . .)

Looks like Leaf Cutter Ant??

I think it's one of those ear thingies, I don't know what they are called in English :(

One of these:

Actually now I look at the picture, it doesn't really look like it. Hmmm. And it creeped me out! (The picture, that is, not your plushie!)
