Great idea and great execution! You always amaze us!

Ladies and gentlement, the Pythean International Society reveals their most recent discovery: the Arumbayan Giant Leech!



This curiously gigantoform of Praobdellidae was discovered just recently after attacking the motor launch of British destroyer 'HMS Reckless', sent to probe the river for a crashed amphibious biplane (Supermarine Wallruss) carrying important dispatches...



The biologist attached to the Society's expedition, Herr Doktor Hannibal von Rumtopf, has named the slithering, bloodsucking thing Tyrannobdella Imperialis Pythia and is awaiting the society's council's approval for the same.





Herr Dr H. v. Rumtopf, after hearing to some local stories that similar  blood sucking creatures appear in other parts of the river (not belonging to Arumbaya) has made an alteration in the taxonomy of the new species and proposed a NEW name:
Tyranobdella Imperialis Pythia rumtopfsia arumbayensis and awaits the approval of the name that will bring him some international recognition.

BTW, what is the model used?

Lovely Peder. Kindly reminds me of the leeches we have here at Two Ducks Pond.
Best wishes,
Helen

Concerning the name. The Scientific name  for leeches is Haemadipsa (i.e. blood thirsty) so an alternative name could also be:

Tyranohaemadipsa Imperialis Pythia rumtopfsia arumbayensis (v. Rumtopf 19xx)


Now where is the fluorescent electrical eel electrophorus electricus fluoroluminescensis ?

The last meeting of the Society records an outright Polish parliament over this. A truce was finally reach awaiting new specima. Volunteers for a new expedition has been curiously slow to present themselves.

Lovely (in a disgusting sort of way) mini and a gripping scene that meets the Hammer's standard that we have come to expect!

I disagree.....the leech is cracking, that paint scheme and gloss varnish REALLY work well, BUT that is NOT a normal Hammers scene.......where's the guy and the dog? ;)
