This detailed, anatomically accurate (230 mm long - scale 1:8) has been created by paleoartist Bruce Currie with feedback from leading paleontologists. It is built using state of the art 3D printing technology. After initial printing the model undergoes a secondary process that enhances surface quality, accentuates colouration and provides protection against UV damage and handling. This model also receives a small amount of hand finishing.

Tiktaalik roseae is an extinct sarcopterygian "Fishapod" which evolved during the late Devonian period (~375 mya). Tiktaalik is thought to be a good example of a transitional organism - with both fish and tetrapod characteristics. It was among the first
vertebrates to cross the margins of land and water.
