Seeing those treasures (especially Odontochelys) brings back lots of memories.

I just realized that I think this is my accidental 'fossil turtle' shelf...other than a couple Kaiyodo and one Shapeways of course...!

And now the bottom half of this cabinet!

Many dinosaurs...but not as many as there once were. And then some squishy backbone-less things!

These may be the most crowded shelves; there's always some kind of issue with making things fit well. So I'll revisit again someday!

squishy backbone-less things? LOL. By the way, great idea for displaying the jellyfish!

Okay, so they're not all squishy...and some of them are almost backboney!

But after numerous attempts with different stands for the jellies, this seems to work the best...especially the Bully Medusa, so that the tentacles didn't bend up too much.

The next best might have been small doll stands, but I couldn't find any.

And now! The last cabinet!

First, top of the cabinet...kind of a mix of things...



Then the shelves (top of first half).

First one is all Starlux, plus a few other breakables and resins...

And then fish! So many fish! Mostly the various freshwater ones from various companies. I think a lot of my restructuring and even selling off had as much to do with giving these a better display!







More tomorrow-ish!

And the bottom half...it's a marine bonanza! All sharks, larger fish, and marine reptiles!

As a kid, I would never have believed there would be this many shark toys...I remember when such a thing was pretty much an impossibility.

So, here I am on the last stretch...top of the last cabinet side!

More fish! Big ones this time! And the beginning of the mammal shelves...

Well, here it is--the last shelves in the room! There are other models, scattered about the house...and I will get to those eventually (which is why so pretty obvious models are missing from here...like the Leedsichthys and Ptilodus).

But this lot is entirely prehistoric mammals...and rays. So many rays!







Hope you enjoy the shelves...as they were a few weeks ago! There are always new things here and there to add!
