Ichthyostega by NTamura Ichthyostega by NTamura
Ichthyostega stensioi, early tetrapod from the Late Devonian of Greenland. Probably spent most of his time in water...

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.

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