His name is Renard, of course, which is French for "fox."
You gave to much away here; I called out "Cuttlefish" after seeing the first picture. Anyone could tell that.
I wonder if you've seen this crocheted cuttlefish.
Of course a link would have helped. Sorry! http://jpolka.blogspot.com/2008/03/cuttlefish.html
Thanks for the link, Tesla! That crocheted cuttlefish is awesome. Now I just need to learn how to crochet...
