Tylosaurus proriger capturing Pachyrhizodus - Model by Leccathu Feb 27, 2013


This is a model of the marine mosasaur Tylosaurus proriger, found in the Western Interior Seaway in North America, and found at lengths of up to 35-40 feet. Stomach contents found associated with Tylosaurus have included fish, sharks, smaller mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, and flightless diving birds. Due to so many tylosaurs depicted eating more charismatic plesiosaurs, etc., I went against the grain and depicted a prey item a little less famous, though still interesting; an unspecific species of fish under the genus Pachyrhizodus, which have been discovered at lengths up to three feet.

Media: ZBrush 4R4 Time: ~4-5 hours

Apologies for the awkward angle of the model. In MeshLab and ZBrush the model opens base-side-down.

This model is to be printed with any typical 3-D printer. No building or gluing required as far as I can tell. If you do print this model and it ends up with a fault or is structurally unsound, please let me know, and I will see if I can fix the source of the fault! Thank you, and enjoy your Tylosaurus!
