Your challenge for WG 68 is to create a hybrid animal, where the final letters of one animal overlap with the beginning letters of an another. The wordplay in your clue should lead to one of these animals; the definition should lead to the other animal.
The overlapping letters should number two or more, but should not constitute the entire name of one of the animals.
Here is, I hope, a clarifying (but not outstanding) example:
Rodent I get is rattled when facing rats, primarily
The hybrid is TIGERBIL.
The definition is rodent = GERBIL
The wordplay is IGET anag + R(ats) = TIGER
Some other example hybrids, which you can use or not, are:
I repeat: the definition should lead to one of the animals and the wordplay to the other.
The deadline is the end of your day, Friday, April 15 -- which, I hope, is not too taxing.
