Prolibytherium was a small, prehistoric, insect-eating mammal that lived in South America during the Eocene epoch, around 56 to 34 million years ago. It was a member of the Dryolestoidea, a group of mammals that were closely related to the earliest mammals and marsupials.
- Prolibytherium was a small mammal, estimated to have weighed less than 2 pounds and been less than a foot long.
- Its small size and insectivorous diet made it well-adapted to life in the trees, where it could easily catch insects and other small prey.
- Fossils of Prolibytherium have been found in several locations across South America, providing important insights into the early evolution of mammals in the Americas.
- Prolibytherium and other members of the Dryolestoidea were some of the first mammals to colonize South America, which was isolated from other continents during the Eocene.
- The discovery of Prolibytherium and other early mammals in South America supports the theory of Gondwanan origin of South American mammals, suggesting that they evolved from a common ancestor that lived on the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.

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.
