Animal Planet: Pluto Picture

Please do not edit, reproduce or redistribute

Nineth picture of my old series "Animal planet", which was about representing the solar system as fantastic animals.

I made this before we knew how Pluto's surface really looked like. It turned out to be quite different from this at the end, but at the time, this is all we had.
Pluto is a dwarf planet that was considered a planet for a long time, so it seemed fair enough to include it. In mythology, Pluto is the god of the underworld, and Charon (the moon) is it's ferryman. Bats and bugs are not exactly the most loved creatures on Earth and most of them prefer the dark over the light. So I thought...Pluto is in some of the farest, darkest and coldest places of this solar system...but it has a moon, who could be a firefly to help it see better and not being so alone.
