The fursona[edit]

Dineegla is an Alaskan Moose from North Dakota via Canada. His full name is Dineegla G. Alces. "Dineegla," which is actually a modified spelling of "DINEEGA," comes from the Athabaskan language, meaning "large, lanky moose". The "G." stands for "Gigantic", as per his species' scientific name Alces alces gigas.

Dineegla's "life story" can be found on Dineegla's Arctic Journal.[3]

Dineegla's furry art tends towards musclefurs and photomorph. He currently has a series called "mAnimals" on deviantART, as well as Photo-Anthropomorphic Musclefurs on Fur Affinity.

Dineegla and his mate, MuscleWolf [4], have created a "online gym" called The Furocity Gym. It does not have a home website as of yet, but a developmental branch of it can be found at The Furocity Gym on Yahoo Groups
