As the single owner operator of The Creature Vat, I make all my creations entirely by myself in my home "laboratory" and garage workshop.
I enjoy translating my long time interest in real and fantasy creatures into tangible items that hopefully other people will also find interesting and amusing.
Think of them as "coyote/roadrunner" names if you remember that cartoon. They are mostly made up using latin and greek word roots badly mangled to resemble biological genus/species taxonomy. Sometimes part of the name is to help me remember what kind of wood I used.
The Creature Vat does not use woods from trees protected by CITES, or appearing on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™:
