Paleozoo Hallucigenia

Hallucigenia – Paleozoo Replica




                                                                                                         Hallucigenia is one of the more unusual organisms found within the Burgess Shale and its exact phylogeny is still subject to
                                                                                                         conjecture. Long assumed to have no living descendants it is now thought to be indirectly related to modern velvet worms.




                                                                                                         Hallucigenia was originally considered so odd that it could only be imagined as part of an hallucination, thus its unusual name.
                                                                                                         However, later examinations showed that researchers had been looking at the remains upside down and what were initially
                                                                                                         thought to be uniquely styled legs were in fact spines that grew up from its back. This rearranging of the information helped
                                                                                                         to explain Hallucigenia’s anatomy though it is still regarded as bizarre.





                                                                                                         In addition to the spines and lopobod style legs, more recent examinations of Hallucigenia fossils have identified a series of
                                                                                                         unusual feeding appendages and possible eye spots.




                                                                                                    Paleozoo replicas are designed and built by paleoartist Bruce Currie. Once complete high-quality, full-colour 3D prints are                     
                                                                                                    created. These prints then undergo a secondary process that enhances colour and surface quality and provides protection against
                                                                                                    handling, water and UV damage. All Paleozoo models are then hand packaged along with a detailed information card.
                                                                                                    All models ship worldwide with a no-damage-in-transit gaurantee.

Just an update on the Paleozoo Hallucigenia.

Due to its fine nature and the need to avoid damage in transit this model now ships in parts and requires a small amount of assembly upon delivery. All Paleozoo Hallucigenia model parts will arrive fully prepared and with detailed assembly instructions - see below.
