P is for Pfrit. One of the dinkiest of mammals, the pfrit, Aquambulus hirsutus, can walk on water thanks to its light weight and whiskery paws and feet. A terror to mosquito descendents when it stabs its mouth into their larva to suck them dry, it's a boon to wetlands of the Eurasia-America 50 millions years in the future.
Perhaps inspired by the artists on DeviantArt who speculate on what future animals might look like, I bring you the pfrit, originally dreamed up by Dougal Dixon in his 1981 book After Man.
