Where Are My Banana Slug Shifters?

Someone to CuttleToday’s topic comes from QSFer Jim Comer: “Animal species: We see too many bears and wolves. Where are tales of kinkajous, binturongs, and banana slugs?”

We do see quite a preponderance (love that word) of wolf shifters these days, as well as some panther shifters and pretty much anything else sleek and powerful.

But how about a little more shifter weirdness?

So my questions today – what animals would you like to see in shifter stories? And what are some of the weirder ones you have seen?

  1. Charlie Cochrane wrote the BEST ever shifter story where her protagonist was a three-toed sloth. I can’t match that but have written a story where a lonely werewolf falls foul of the local flock of weresheep, just for a bit of fun.

  2. Charlie Richards has a lot of good ones in her Kontra’s Menagerie and Wolves of Stone Ridge series’. She has a charming platypus in Educating the Platypus and she also has an emperor penguin, a warthog, a Nile monitor lizard, a tarantula, and an elephant mixed in with all the wolves and big cats. The list of unusual shifters goes on.

    I’d like to see a Koala or a Kangaroo next.
