The three animals are standing on top of each other. The top animal is a bird. It has a light colored body with a green head, blue tail, and purple detail on the wings. The middle animal is possibly a lamb with floppy ears. The bottom animal is possibly a goat and has straight brown horns. The bottom two animals have red backs with red scallops along the edge with orange, green, and blue detail. The legs have vertical wavy lines in bright pink, and bands of dark blue at the top and medium blue and light green at the bottom. There is a blue band on each neck with bright pink, light green, and orange below.
