Bothriolepis canadensis resin model kit

Bothriolepis canadensis resin model kit

The Bothriolepis  is a placoderm fish that lived in the Upper Devonian (about 370 million years ago).  The Botriolepis was a typical representative of the antiarcha order, excellently armored fish with pelagic or benthonic life. Bothriolepis canadensis is a typical fossil  of some plaeontological fields located in Ontario, Canada. For this model we used an original sample from which we extrapolated the morphology of the plates and some publ. that redescribe its anatomical structure in a morphofunctional way. "  The model is 3D printed in 1: 1 scale resin and can be painted or sold colorless.
