Genesis 8:1-5 (NLT)
1 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and livestock with him in the boat. He sent a wind to blow across the earth, and the floodwaters began to recede.
2 The underground waters stopped flowing, and the torrential rains from the sky were stopped. 3 So the floodwaters gradually receded from the earth. After 150 days, 4 exactly five months from the time the flood began , the boat came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
5 Two and a half months later , as the waters continued to go down, other mountain peaks became visible.

TIME OF DAY:
Indeterminate – Morning
Only animals visible – armadillo, toucan, 2 mice, elephant’s trunk & ostrich.
In the original version I had a small ark, at rest on the island in the middle of the cartoon, but that was ratehr dull. I re-drew a larger ark, at an angle to the viewer & added the animals to give the picture interest.
Used Google Earth to get picture of scenery. View of Mount Judi / Cudi, 37°22’50.06“N 42°26’55.52“E, looking east. Mount Judi/Cudi is the supposed resting place of Noah’s ark… but there are other possible sites!
The animals present are, from left to right: Nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus), Keel-billed Toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus), Wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus), Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) & Ostrich (aka Common Ostrich) (Struthio camelus).
