Description

The model is cast in specially dyed resins in different colors and translucency. The resins are brushed into the silicone mold to give it a fleshy/ bony depth. Finishing painting is done with airbrush. Hairs and bristles are mounted one by one. The model is supervised by Allison Daley and Derek Briggs. Laggania cambria was a species of Anomalocarid that lived in the Cambrian period. Unlike most other anomalocarids, Laggania was thought to be a filter feeder rather than an active predator. Its two mouth appendages had long bristle-like spines. Laggania had no fan tail, and its short stalked eyes were behind its mouth appendages, another reason why some scientists don't think Laggania was a ruthless hunter, but rather the whale of its time.
