How do I create an animal?
Make sure you are in the "Animal" view
(the top "Animal" button will be selected)
Tap on one of the animals in the left-hand "Animals" column to enlarge it. You will see the animal divided into four quadrants. Make sure the "Pieces" button is selected in the Animals column.
Tapping or dragging one of these quadrants will place that section of the animal on the right-hand side of the screen, the animal creation workspace.
Choose other quadrants from other animals to create your animal.
How do I color my animal?
Coloring tools are found on a toolbar at the bottom of the workspace. If the toolbar is hidden, click on the diagonal arrow on the bottom-right of your screen. To hide the toolbar, click on the "X" button to the right of the toolbar.
To apply color:
How do I start a new animal?

How do I give my animal a different name?
To give your animal a random name, click the red die icon on the top left of your workspace. To type in your own name, click the A key icon. To lock the name of the animal so it can't be changed, even if you swap out pieces, click the lock icon.
How do I save my animal?
