Moropus was a large, prehistoric, plant-eating mammal that lived in North America during the late Eocene epoch, around 37 to 33 million years ago. It was a member of the hyracodontids, a group of rhinoceros-like mammals that were characterized by their long legs and powerful hind limbs.
- Moropus had a long, flexible neck and a powerful jaw that it used to reach and grasp leaves and branches while browsing on vegetation.
- It had a unique skeletal structure that allowed it to run at high speeds and make quick turns, making it well-adapted to avoid predators.
- Moropus was one of the largest mammals of its time, reaching up to 6 feet tall at the shoulder and weighing up to 2,000 pounds.
- Fossils of Moropus have been found in several locations across western North America, providing important insights into the evolution of large mammals during the Eocene.

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.
