a total newbie named "brontodocus"
« on: December 06, 2012, 03:01:06 PM »
Hi, my name is Andre, I'm a zoologist at the University of Bochum (mostly lecturing on arthropods). :) Some might know me from the Dinosaur Toy Forum where I go by the name brontodocus, too. I hope we have a good time here. :D I might have a few collection pictures I will show later on. Now to find a proper avatar and all these things... :-[

I see you picked an avatar image - is that a tardigrade?  :o Good choice!  :D

Hehe, yes, it's an Echiniscus sp. by Agatsuma Entertainment. :) Although my avatar may be subject to change - I'm still browsing for an appropriate beetle figure photo that I have. I mean - Charles Darwin once said "It seems therefore that a taste for collecting beetles is some indication of future success in life". Oh, well, he might as well have been wrong here...  :o ;D

Hehe, thanks, Adam! :) I wanted something similar to my signature on DTF but this time only with figures of extant animals. All the photos were ready to assemble in a "collage" and I have plenty of free time this weekend (between cooking and sending the kids to bed and such) so the launch of the animal Toy Forum couldn't have come at a better time for me. :D

Yes, I like the Agatsuma tardigrade. But I was also thinking about maybe having a drawing by Niroot as an avatar.


I might have one that could be suitable... :) It's a part of the same drawing my Therizinosaurus DTF avatar comes from. And it was a birthday card. ^-^

Hehe, it's all your fault. ;) Well, I could also rotate avatars. :D

Actually that brought me to the idea to use an animated *.gif of a rotating Hymenopus coronatus orchid mantis I made some 14 years ago:

Too bad it won't show up rotating as an avatar, so I'll switch back to the tardigrade. :)
