Rattly

Following on from the last post, here’s another Animal Buddy from the Donkey Kong platforming series.
Rattly is a character seen in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong’s Quest on the SNES. Diddy and Dixie Kong can ride him and use his jumping abilities to reach previously inaccessible areas and jump on enemies that would normally hurt them.

The designer recommends placing a weight of some sort in the tail before closing the model to make sure he keeps upright.
