dang his jaw opens wide. i think your scaling is kinda interesting. like, on the tail, they are individual scales, but in several places like toward the hip and the front right claw are all like one long band across. is there a reason? or just how you perceived it? just curious.
The pattern on the scales differ from the tail I believe since the tail is finned and developed for aquatic thrust it is shaped differently and I guess it was the design that the people who made the creature went with.
