Fur on Oscar's Ears and Perfect Feet

As Oscar grows, there are daily changes. He still looks like a baby dragon but he is getting some squirrel-distinguishing-marks.

For instance his perfectly-formed paws, including a thumb, are well-developed and one can see how these creatures manage to be superb climbers with claws that are almost half the size of each digit.

And something that isn't readily apparent when looking at him during feeding, he is getting fur on his ears and the fur on his muzzle is filling out. And look at his long whiskers!

He also appears to have the beginnings of furry growth along his back. Looks like he may be a black squirrel as there does not appear to be any gray fur coming in.
