Here are the plush versions I made of creatures found in the Burgess Shale. The first image is one of the many illustrations that exist that depicts a still shot of what the Burgess Shale looked like during the Cambrian explosion 530 million years ago (if all the creatures stopped to pose together for a family photo during their yearly picnic). I haven’t made all of the Burgess Shale critters yet, but maybe some day! And actually now that I look at it a couple of the ones I have made aren’t featured in the family photo. Oops.
