This animal features in the book “Astonishing Animals” because it truly is one of the most extraordinary mammals on the planet.
I recently created palaeo reconstructions of fossil platypus from Lightning Ridge and South America dated from over a hundred million years ago. Remarkably, the fossil species are not very different from the one that you see in this painting!
Images may be licensed to an individual or company for a variety of uses such as magazines, newspapers, letterheads, CD covers, greeting cards etc.
When using the image, full accreditation must be given to Peter Schouten. If the image has been published in a book (we will advise you of this), then the title of the book must also be mentioned.
Please note that fees will vary according to the manner in which the image is intended to be used. For example, an image that is used as a small reproduction in a newspaper will attract a different fee structure to one that is used as a full colour cover illustration. Other factors, such as exclusive rights or repeated usage may also affect pricing. Please provide all relevant information when completing our Image Licensing Enquiry form.
Not For Profit organisations may be eligible for reduced rates. Please also complete the Image Licensing Enquiry form with as much detail as possible. We will endeavour to respond to your request within 24 hours.
