Another future museum replica to ponder? More breaking news?
So, the new rumored Safari Ltd’s 2010 Carnegie Ichthyosaurus is said to have a “closed jaw” and reportedly an “ammonite’s tentacles are in the mouth [of the Ichthyosaurus] not the [ammonite’s] shell. The shell is hanging off to the side of the [Ichthyosaurus’] jaws.”
I wonder if the new Carnegie replica is based on the artwork of Ichthyosaurus grendelius by John Sibbick.
Here is the sample painting he shows to sell this artwork.
Makes you wonder. Could the 2010 WS prehistoric marine life toob’s small Ichthyosaurus ~ which has its mouth open ~ be used in a diorama to represent a young Ichthyosaurus, as shown in the Sibbick painting above?
The 2010 Wild Safari Prehistoric Sea Life toob.
Sea Monsters were and are real. Heaven help the ammonites.
The oceans remain a dangerous place.
Wild Safari’s 2010 hotly anticipated coelacanth replica!
Lionfish, tiger sharks, Ichthyosaurus, giant squids, and coelacanths? Coming soon to a neighborhood museum shop near you.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
