    You know who we haven’t heard from in a while? That Mosaic-Tailed Rat.

    CROW 1 (voice over)

    He wears the best hats.

    Panel 5: Close up on CROWS.

    CROW 2

    Oh yeah. He’s dead. Actually, his entire species is extinct.

    What?! How?

    Panel 6: Close up on CROW 2.

    CROW 2

    Climate change, primarily. Rising seas destroyed their habitat, and killed all the rats.

    Panel 7: Panel frames CROW 1, who considers CROW 2’s words.
