Vault tales 179 – Clades – Euchondrocephali

Already another ‘clades’ post, but this time one with a few more figures at least! This one will be Euchondrocephali–a group of shark-like chondrichthyan fish that are more closely related to the holocephalans (the modern ratfish Chimaera and elephantnose fish Callorhinchus). The funny thing is that for the longest time, these fish were assumed toContinue reading “Vault tales 179 – Clades – Euchondrocephali”

Vault Tales 118 ToyTrio Nimravid, Iberian Lynx, Ichthyosaur

Time for another Toy Trio, a model I use to look quickly at a few figures that were picked by the Random Number Generator, but might not warrant a full on post on their own. It’s also a chance to work through the list a little faster…I’m not going to run through it anytime soon,Continue reading “Vault Tales 118 ToyTrio Nimravid, Iberian Lynx, Ichthyosaur”
