Draculoides bramstokeri

One of my favorite models I've ever been hired to create. this is a Schizomida - a type of arachnid - with the species name "Draculoides bramstokeri". From Wikipedia: "A small, soil-dwelling invertebrate that walks on six legs and uses two modified front legs as feelers. It uses large fang-like pedipalps, or pincers, to grasp invertebrate prey and crunch it into pieces before sucking out the juices. Named for this method of dispatching victims and after Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula.
The species is light yellow or brown, 5 mm long and known to inhabit six caves on Barrow Island and two on the North West Cape in Western Australia. It is threatened by pollution and damage to caves and is vulnerable to extinction. Draculoides bramstokeri was first described in 1995.[1]"

You know some entomologist nerd had a great time naming this species. It looks truly terrifying but so small you would probably never notice it. I was hire to create a model of it by CDM: Studio. The model is part of an exhibit at the Wester Australia Museum. I hope to see it in person someday. I have included a photo of the final print, another artist painted the model .
