These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll be happy to send it to you. Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.

These are my extinct animals: I made these 3D models made in Maya for fun and i even sold some of them online I'm not sure how accurate they are i just used images as reference maybe some people can give me hints on how to improve them Right now i don't have more rendered images, i will ad more in the future Proetida - i don't know the exact species, i just found some images in google of a trilobite and i made it _______________________________________ Pikaia - From the Cambrian Burgess Shale _______________________________________ Velociraptor - Not finished yet _______________________________________ Dunkleosteus - Just the basic shape yet
