Mixopterus by NTamura Mixopterus by NTamura
Mixopterus kiaeri was a 0.75 meter long Eurypterid ("sea scorpion") that lived during the Silurian in what is now Norway. It had a long pointed tail which might have been used to pierce preys and a variety of appendages in front of the head.

Great. Incredibly great.

It makes me think on a monster from a fantasy saga that I'm reading. Maybe the author was thinking on euripterids xD

It's the whole giant arthropod thing. And you've made its eyes look really menacing!
