Ambulocetus was a large, prehistoric, aquatic mammal that lived in what is now Pakistan during the Eocene epoch, around 49 to 43 million years ago. It was a member of the cetaceans, a group of mammals that includes whales, dolphins, and porpoises.
- Ambulocetus was a large mammal, estimated to have been up to 10 feet long and weighing over 1,000 pounds.
- It had a long, narrow body and powerful hind legs, making it well-adapted to life in the water.
- Ambulocetus was one of the earliest cetaceans, and its fossils provide important evidence for the evolution of whales from land-dwelling mammals.
- Its large size and powerful hind legs suggest that it was a strong swimmer, capable of pursuing and capturing prey in the water.
- Ambulocetus lived at a time when the region was a large, shallow sea, and its fossils provide important evidence for the early distribution and evolution of marine mammals.

Due to the inherit nature of 3D printing the miniatures might contain imperfections and could require additional cleanup where the support have been; use sand paper or green putty for example. Print layers will sometimes be visable.
3D resin is brittle, even if we use a mixture than makes it more flexible. However it cannot be compared with the normal plastic that is used for example Warhammer, Marx or Conte miniatures. Handle the 3D prints with care, a fall can break them. Glue info here.
