Visual Description : Two box designs sit next to each other, both with large red borders framing the animals inside them. On the left, a beaver sits with its tail and feet touching the ground. Inside the body is a large face with no teeth showing, unlike the beavers head above where the two front teeth are the most prominent. The box on the right holds a whale where its head rests on the ground and its fins run along the height of the red edges. Inside the outlines of the animals is a cross-hatched design.
