Oh, those are looking nice!

The "Kaprosuchus" seems to actually be Araripesuchus.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

Never heard about him. Really a great artist. His creations seem so alive. Do you have any link or site about that artist?

OMG!!!



The space between the "OMG" and the start of this sentence is because I was speechless!
Is there anywhere these can be purchased?
Are these photos, of figures you own?
I'm in love!!!
