Atopodentatus unicus

This is an extinct marine reptile with sensational mouth apparatus. The article about it is here: http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/science-atopodentatus-unicus-new-fossil-reptile-china-01768.html


This image represents three hypothetical styles of feedeng . On the forefront it combs the ground with lower jaw. The middle reptile hollows out some Crustacea from the ground with the groove on the upper jaw and flexible skin fold on it. And the farthest animal just tries to catch some small fish and filtrate it with it’s jaw apparatus.

Nice Idea. And very interessant animal
The ground could have more to it than just sand… maybe it could help to give the sense of scale (they are supposed to be about 3m long, but they look smaller than that)
the caustics, are also a bit big for that scale.

Appart from that, the fog/illumination/models look great.

Keep posting more :wink:
