RAREBREED SHOWCASE: Hellbender

Hellbender
Salamander by ©2012-2015 RareBreed

A creepy, crawly denizen of North America’s cold mountain waters is the relic hellbender. Reaching upwards of 70 cm and 2 kilos, it’s only rivaled by river monsters known as the Japanese and Chinese giant salamanders, which are dwarfed by their even larger still prehistoric cousins.

Curiously, it breathes mostly through folds of light-sensitive skin which varies from a blotchy brown to reddish color. Swimming with undulating movements as well as numerous wrinkles, its eyes are small, beady, and lidless. It hunts predominately by sense of smell preying on snakes, fish, crawdads, and amphibians (including other hellbenders). Most often it can be found hiding beneath rocks with its flattened skull and body emerging only till dusk. Like newts, these primitive salamanders can regenerate loss limbs and some body parts. As amphibians they go through metamorphosis -about 1.5 years into life their external gills disappear until then, they resemble the ordinary common mudpuppy.

Past evolution’s stages are recaptured through an amphibian’s metamorphose from water to land. The elusive hellbender, perhaps demonic in appearance, is a creature that is old as time, rare, they’ve remained relatively unchanged for 160 million years. The aquatic hellbender is finely sculpted for the ©2012-2015 RareBreed Wildlife Collection.

RAREBREED SHOWCASE: Animantarx

Ankylosaur
Ankylosaur by ©2012-2015 RareBreed

Animantarx, latin for “living fortress” or “animated citadel” were ankylosaurians aptly named. A rare find, it had been dug up from radioactive sediments from the Cedar Mountain Formation, Utah; the first and only one of its kind.

An early ankylosaur, it was related to nodosaurs such as sauropelta and gastonia, it lacked the famous ankylosaurian tail club but makes up for it with numerous defensive scutes and spikes. Three meters in length it may have been diminutive compared to tarchia and ankylosaurus (6-8 meters and several tons) but nodosaurs evolved more gracile and swift. Of ankylosaurs, there were several varieties: giant clubbed tanks and the spiny pangolin-like nodosaur or polacanths; all were interesting glimpses on body armor evolved by the world’s most heavily defensed saurians.

Animantarx were miniature castles, herbivorous armored Ornithischians that dwelt in the Cretaceous floodplains of North America. Ankylosaur animantarx model replica is finely sculpted for the ©2012-2015 RareBreed Prehistoric Collection.

RAREBREED SHOWCASE: Spinosaurus aegyptiacus (revisited)

Updated spinosaurus based off scientific findings
Outdated spinosaurus

Spinosaurus aegyptiacus has adapted to a more leviathan appearance for a semi-aquatic lifestyle, at least in line with last year’s discovery. It may have competed with other large predators such as cretaceous crocodilians and carcharodontosaurus; so adapting to water makes it both the largest terrestrial and aquatic predator on earth at 40-50 feet in length and 6 to 10 tons in weightAs one of a kind colored and customized replica,  Spinosaurus agyptiacus (below) is available at the RareBreed Gallery at slightly a larger scale than current versions. New spinosaurus vs. old model (retired) comparison side by side shows model progress as of 2015. Spinosaurus scale model replicas are finely sculpted for the Prehistoric Collection by ©2012-2015 RareBreed.
