What is the creature displayed in the 'Unable to connect' screen?

Posted

Me colleague and I had a disagreement over what the creature shown in the 'Unable to connect' screen is. I say it's a hamster, while he claims it is obviously a dragon-like creature.

The picture itself had no description of it and I could not find this question being asked anywhere else.

Any help in figuring this out would be greatly appreciated,

Thank you

The picture of the creature did not show up in my question, for some reason. So I will upload it with a reply.

Hello therealnero,

Doesn't look like a hamster or a dragon-like creature to me, more like a potato .....

But take a look at this thread :
