I ended up just using a solid piece for these since I found I nice chunk of sitka spruce at the local lumber yard. If I were to have used 2x4's like I planned I would have thickness planed them first so they glued up nicely. if you don't have a thickness planer just try and find 2x4's that aren't cupped, for these a bit of warping down the length is less bad than the cross section being "C" shaped rather than rectangular. I would also glue them together in smaller sections, a bit longer than what you need for each animal. That way you can pick pieces easily where the grain looks nice together and if they are a bit C shaped you can nest them together "CC" and it won't be too bad. For glueing just remember to use lots of clamps =) hope that helps!
