[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The weasels are representing something we are very familiar with.

Hint Two
    The orientation of their tails is no accident.

Hint Three
    Their bodies are long, but their tails are short.
    Does that remind you of something?

Super Hint
    Their bodies are like the long hand on a clock, and their tails are like the short hand.
    They are representing times on a clock.
    The top-left weasel is showing 2 o'clock.

[edit] When Failed

Bad luck.

Is there nothing about your person that might give you a clue?

[edit] When Completed

You did it!

The weasels were representing times on a clock.
2 o'clock + 8 = 10 o'clock
10 o'clock + 4 = 14 (2) o'clock
3 o'clock + 6 = 9 o'clock
Those are the times they were representing from top to bottom.

[edit] Solution

The number that goes on the bottom panel is 6.

[edit] Progress

1565 Picarats and 109 Hint Coins.
