Pampatherium was a large, prehistoric, plant-eating mammal that lived in South America during the late Miocene epoch, around 11 to 5 million years ago. It was a member of the glyptodonts, a group of armored mammals that were related to armadillos.
- Pampatherium had a massive, bony shell that covered its back and tail, providing protection from predators.
- Its name, Pampatherium, means “beast of the Pampas” in Greek, referring to the large, flat grasslands of South America where it lived.
- Pampatherium was one of the largest glyptodonts, reaching up to 10 feet in length and weighing over 2,000 pounds.
- Its large size and heavy armor made it nearly invulnerable to predators, allowing it to feed on low-lying vegetation without fear of attack.
- Fossils of Pampatherium have been found in several locations across South America, providing important insights into the evolution of armored mammals in the Americas.

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.
