Primeval Predators: Animals of the Burgess Shale

What exactly are they? Burgess Shale action figures!! These give some of your run-of-the-mill plastic dinosaurs a little competition! I forget exactly how John and I heard about these, but from the moment he saw them we have been wanting to get some. They finally arrived in the mail this past week and they are cool! Check them out (or buy your own here at the Royal Ontario Museum!)

I've had this set for years, and it's great when teaching about the Burgess Creatures, for which no 2D picture can really do justice. (Too bad they're not to scale, though...). I just had to add this one to the kit; I'm very surprised it was included in the initial run! _Aysheia_ would be great, too...

Awesome! I was so bummed that they did not include Hallucigenia.

I must own those.

I am in the middle of reading "Wonderful Life" and I recognize all of those buggers.
