Greetings Rareware/PlayTonic fans!
Today I am here to bring up a very important matter:
Upon watching the Beta64 interview with the members of PlayTonic on YouTube, I significantly recall hearing about how they were looking for specific animal species to name Yooka and Laylee. Just as Banjo was a Brown Honey-Bear, and Kazooie a Red-Crested Breegull, they would like to implement this little detail into the upcoming 3-D Platformer Heroes, which of course adds that "Rareware Flair" we all know and love. So I am here to suggest my ideas for the species of Yooka and Laylee.
For Yooka, it was difficult for me to find a chameleon species that would fit the specific characteristics of Yooka, especially due to that unique crest on the back of his head. However, through my knowledge of Herpetology, I found my personal choice for Yooka: A Flap Neck Chameleon.

As for Laylee, I have selected the Egyptian Rousette Bat. Since I cannot find a suitable species with a nose as unique as hers, I needed to find something as appropriate as possible. Heck, you could make it part of Laylee's back story, saying she is originally from Egypt. Also PlayTonic, could you give her eyelashes to make her look more feminine? She looks more like a boy to me.

Anyways, what do you guys think? Were my choices good or bad? What species do YOU think they are?
