Finished this a few days ago. One thing I have to say. I've looked at a lot of people's online before doing mine. And not to be rude but I don't like any of theirs. Nobody seemed to try and do a theme to the rocks that location wise made more sense for the fossilized dinosaur on its back. Lots of people made gems and all kinds of other things. You wouldn't find those things around fossil remains. So this was my attempt to have something more surreal and actually include the fossils better and since I collect museum quality fossils apart from painting minis. I've seen enough to try my hand at w
https://siberiantimes.com/science/casestudy/news/still-snarling-after-40000-years-a-giant-pleistocene-wolf-discovered-in-yakutia/ The intact head of a gigantic wolf has been discovered in Siberian permafrost. The head is 40cm long, as large as a modern donkey’s head (fully half the body length of a modern wolf!)

The skull is not real; it seems to be a resin cast, and as far as I can tell, it is not representative of anything that ever actually walked the earth. Judging from the smaller teeth, I'm guessing the master was sculpted from scratch by someone with only a tenuous grasp on what animal skulls, much less their teeth, are supposed to look like. The final puzzle piece: I got it at Hobby Lobby in the Mens Decor section; ten bucks. I reiterate the question: If a visitor to my home steps into the trophy r
Think Man-Sized Swimming Centipede â€” And Be Glad It's A Fossil (by Christopher Joyce) A seven-foot-long filter-feeding anomolocarid fossil from the early Ordovician period, 480 million years ago, has been cleaned up and identified after being found in Morocco. Anomalocarids were first identified in the famous Precambrian Burgess Shale formations in western Canada, 508 million years old. For the time they were gigantic -- maybe 80cm to a meter long, when all else was tiny worms, trilobites, and some extremely weird early critters. They weren't even recognized as one creature at first.
