That's awesome. Far too big and, most likely, expensive for me. But it's always nice to see an obscure weirdo get some love.

I'm confident that my wife would love to see one of these sprawled out in our living room!

Any information about availability or pricing? Life sized prehistoric animals as garden decorations is something I had never considered, but it's an interesting idea for sure. That's how I got a lot of my 1:1 birds...

Well, can't say I'd seen this coming. Gotta wonder what it's made of, weight would effect price. Hollow one wouldn't be too bad

That Seymouria model is really impressive! It looks alive, and it almost scares me in it’s realism. Congratulations to the sculptor!

Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

Yeah, personally I prefer things smaller than life size unless they're very tiny organisms to start with. But I bought some of their previous releases because I had to have those fishes.

Any information about availability or pricing? Life sized prehistoric animals as garden decorations is something I had never considered, but it's an interesting idea for sure. That's how I got a lot of my 1:1 birds...

They're hand-cast and hand-painted, so they are expensive. The most expensive one I bought was the Falcatus, which was €350. The Seymouria is bigger, but doesn't require a base and stand, so I dunno. As for availability, he seems to make them to order in batches. I requested five, and it took about two months from the initial request to final delivery.

I have often joked with my husband about having the odd prehistoric model in our garden.  This would look quite good by our pond!  But I don’t love it enough to shell out for it.

The first 2020 release from Artificial Animals is this life-size Seymouria model:


For those who like a little bit of the Permian in their garden.

Hmm, I should try to contact the Whitside Museum about this, seeing as they operate in Seymouria's namesake hometown of Seymour, TX.

Would be nice if Safari would make something like this, I'm reminded of their life size reptiles.

Their fish do reaaly look good, but that Seymouria does not strike me as very authentic....those eyes and fleshless teeth...

I'd buy an Incredible Creatures sized Seymouria, but I'd honestly prefer a Permian Toob. Then again, I'm not running a dinosaur park!

I agree, this is not his best work. I think his dinosaurs are also not very good. The fish are pretty good.

I'm a bit surprised Safari has never made a nice big Trilobite, of all the non dinosaur prehistoric critters you would think they would..but we did get an ammonite so..

Another new release from Artificial Animals: a HUGE Tiktaalik roseae (over 1 meter):

Those models are very beautiful, but most likely much too expensive for me. I have never heard of this brand before, but I am already a fan. However, it is probably the angle of the photo, but does that Tiktaalik's head look strange? It appears to only have one eye.

It has two, the other eye is just covered by the eyelid from this angle.

These figures are suitable for purchase by a dinosaur theme park or a museum for a private individual, even having a very large chalet I do not think I could store those figures.

The truth is that they are very well made figures. The thylacosmilus looks great has hair on its body, but I mean not sculpted but real hair, it looks like a live thylacosmilus.

It's actually just one Spanish artist. I have several of his Paleozoic fishes, I can definitely recommend them, though as you guess they are a bit expensive.

Would love these in the yard. So cool.
Walking With Monsers:
[about Lystrosaurus] Astonishingly, their vast herds make up more than half of all life on Earth. Never again will a single species do so well.
