Hello my dear followers! I have missed you!! I am only quasi-back right now, unfortunately! Plans have changed such that I will be traveling more than I thought, with several days with no internet. I don’t want to start up with entries again only to have to quickly stop. But I said I would post again today, and so instead over the next few days I will be posting some different things that I hope you will like.
First up is a mystery object! I was inspired by the amazing umzoology tumblr. if you do not follow that tumblr you really really should, so get to it.
Can you guys guess what the specimen above is?
Here are some hints!
It is not a fossil itself, but it does represent the anatomy of an extinct animal.
I have not yet done an entry on the animal represented by this object, but I have hit several species in its group, including one very very closely related to it.
As indicated on the images it is about a foot long. Just in case you do not the anatomical terms I used above, the views shown are: lateral - from the side, dorsal - from the top, and ventral - from the bottom. The arrow indicates that anterior - the front of the animal - is to the right in all images.
you can reblog with your guesses or just answer this post thanks to this question mark! ?
