It's a splendid work you're doing here, congratulations. But are you aware that your work is used by some supermarkets in Romania in order to get clients ?
If you're not, take a look here:

Thank you... Yes, I know of this Romanian site. They got my permission to use those illustrations.

Toad bodies were much larger in the Devonian period. One can only speculate what caused them to develop into a head with legs.

I think this one is looking a bit stiff, though it may be more because I'm used to seeing water animals being lazy and hanging their front limbs. Like the different dorsal and ventral skin patterning, makes it so much more convincing.

I believe these were kind of stiff though... what with all the scales.

Would've been lethal?

Taking a shallow-water fish out of the water for a few minutes won't instantly kill it.

Would it be lethal towards humans?

Why? Humans are adapted to living outside of water.

What if one took a swim?

Given the millions of people who are swimming in shallow water in the fifteen seconds it takes me to type this post, why don't you do the math?

A devonian time traveling swimmer might be for a painful bite...
