Been feeling a little prehisto

Been feeling a little prehistoric inspiration lately so I'm running with it! Pterygotus anglicus is one of the largest Eurypterids to have lived and was almost 6 feet long and lived in the ocean during the early Silurian to Devonian periods. Eurypterids are also commonly called Sea Scorpions because they are an ancestor group in the Chelicerate sub-phylum and though they are not Arachnids they were closely related sharing many similar body forms. ✍🏼 🦂 🕷 #seascorpion #eurypterid #pterygotus #pterygotusanglicus #paleoart #prehistoric #prehistoricart #primitive #prehistoriclife #bigscorpion #chelicerata #dmnevolution #art #creative #creativelifehappylife

Silurian period arthropod. (444 - 416 mya) It is still a matter of debate whether Eurypterus was a scavenger or predator but at the very least, being armed and mobile with keen eyesight, it would have been formidable in defense. #Eurypterus #pterygotus #Silurian #arthropods #paleontology #fossils #models #evolution #paleobiology #evolutionarybiology #earthscience #indexfossils #earlylife #anatomy #creaturemodels #ancientlifeforms #3Dprintedmodels # Ordovician #scorpions #seascorpions #geology #Earth #predator #statefossil #NewYorkStateFossil

One of the largest aquatic art

One of the largest aquatic arthropods of all time, ▶▶Pterygotus anglicus◀◀ was one of the dominant predators of the Paleozoic seas, and among the largest known sea scorpions. ▶▶It first arose during the Silurian period, and eventually died out during the early to mid-Devonian (420-390 million years ago). ▶▶Fossils of Pterygotus are relatively common, although complete skeletons are rare, they were almost up to 6 ft (2m) long. ▶▶They had a pair of large compound eyes, as well as another pair of smaller eyes in the center of its head. It had 4 pairs of walking legs, a fifth pair modified into swimming paddles, and a pair of large pincers for subduing prey. ▶▶It lived in shallow coastal areas, hunting fish, trilobites and other animals using stealth. It would have ambushed its prey by burying itself in sand. Then, when a fish or other unwitting animals came within range, Pterygotus would rise up and grab it with its claws. ▶▶The name Pterygotus means "wing-animal or finned one", it was described in 1839 by Louis Agassiz.◀◀

Day 12 (I think) wearing a kig

Day 12 (I think) wearing a kigurumi of my favorite animal. I had no idea what that was until I looked it up. I guess it's like a onesie with really short legs that looks like an animal. Or something. My favorite animal, (currently) is Pterygotus. For (most of you) who don't know what that is, I drew it on the right. It's a giant sea scorpion, and in the family of some of the largest Arthropods ever on earth. In fact, somewhat to scale on the picture. Maybe a little bigger or smaller. #draw #drawing #drawings #sketch #sketching #sketches #arthropod #arthropods #pterygotus #scorpion #scorpions #seascorpion #seascorpions #kigurumi

This horrifying creature is Pt

This horrifying creature is Pterygotus (Tair-ree-go-tus) The largest Arthropod of all time (9.2 Feet, 2.8 M) was part of the now extinct group of Sea Scorpions. Fossil evidence points to it being an Ambush predator, living most of its life on the Sea floor. While this species lived in the Late Silurian, Sea Scorpions thrived for years before until 270 million years ago they died out as a whole. #Pterygotus #Silurian #Scorpion #ocean #seascorpion #cool #paleontology

Hello! It's time for today's e

Hello! It's time for today's extinct animal of the day. Today Is the Pterygotus. The largest of all Eurypterids, or Sea Scorpions, Pterygotus reached lengths of about Seven to eight feet. It lived about 400 million years ago during the Silurian period, about 200 million years before the first dinosaurs would evolve and about 100 million years before life evolved on land. Plants had just evolved. #pterygotus!
