I love this.
My brother and sister in-law surprised me with a belated (not their fault) birthday gift last week: a resin casting of an Architeuthis beak set. Commercially produced by Bone Clones and available from Skulls Unlimited International, it's a real beauty, accurately reproducing the complex structure and subtle surface textures of the giant squid's beaks. (For those who like to know such things, the lower rostral length is 20mm.) I've always wanted a casting like this, and wondered aloud here at TONMO if it was even possible to do such a thing. With any luck, Bone Clones will follow up with a Mesonychoteuthis beak set to keep Archie's chompers company on my shelf.
Thanks again, Dan and Michelle.
