This model is orderd by Tohoku University in Japan. Supervised by Ryosuke Motani, Ichthyosauria reseaｒcher.
Utatsusaurus is the earliest Ichthyosauria, and one of the representative fossil animal in Japan.
Of course, I know these plants were not in Triassic. I took this picture with imagination as "if we can keep this animal".
