Abstract: In this paper we construct examples of uniformly quasiregular (uqr) mappings. These provide counterexamples for a rigidity conjecture in quasiregular dynamics. It states that a closed manifold of dimension at least three, which admits a branched uqr mapping, is quasiconformally equivalent to an ordinary sphere $S^n$.
