**PLEASE READ**

This is an art gallery, not a science site. Most of the art here is nature and science inspired, but is NOT scientific illustration. Expect little accuracy, and you may actually enjoy it. :B

PS- Kind of funny how I have to specify this, this being an art site and all...

Deep Sea Sharks by HodariNundu
Deep Sea Sharks
Solo unos cuantos esbozos a lapiz de tiburones de las profundidades, de los que casi nadie habla y que si fueran un poco mas grandes, asustarían mas que cualquier tiburón blanco :B 

Just a few pencil sketches of some deep sea sharks, of whom we seldom hear anything and which would surely be scarier than any great white if they were a bit larger. Ok, a lot larger.

Big Friggin' Frog by HodariNundu
Big Friggin' Frog
Solo un garabato coloreado para variar. :B Inspirado por el descubrimiento de una especie de Calyptocephalella (rana gigante chilena) del Eoceno (hace 40 millones de años) que bien podría ser la rana mas grande conocida del registro fósil. Medía hasta 60 cms de largo (1 metro con las patas estiradas), y probablemente pesaba entre 5 y 6 kilos, siendo mas grande que el Beelzebufo y que la moderna rana Goliath. De hecho era del tamaño de un gato doméstico grande (y ciertamente mas grande que mi gata, a quien intenté retratar aquí mientras me exigía comida y afirmaba que soy pésimo con el color. Lo cual es cierto, pero no me gusta que me lo diga). 

Just a quick colored doodle for a change. :B Inspired by the discovery of an Eocene (40 million year old) species of Calyptocephalella (giant helmeted frog) from Chile which may very well be the largest frog known from the fossil record. It was up to 60 cms long (1 meter with legs extended), and weighed probably 5 or 6 kgs, being larger than both Beelzebufo and the modern day Goliath frog. In fact, it was as big as a large house cat (and certainly bigger than my cat, whom I tried to portray here as she kept demanding food and saying I suck at coloring. Which I do, but I don´t like it when she tells me).

Permian Predators by HodariNundu
Permian Predators
Atraído por el olor de la sangre, un Kaibabvenator ronda en torno a la roca donde un Dimetrodon devora a su presa. 
Inspirado en algo que oí recientemente, segun lo cual Dimetrodon habría sido un animal semiacuático (que no extraña, considerando a Spinosaurus...). En cuanto a Kaibabvenator, fue un tiburón primitivo (un ctenacanthiforme) que alcanzaba alrededor de seis metros de longitud y podia pesar hasta una tonelada, siendo comparable en tamaño al gran tiburón blanco moderno. Al contrario que éste, estaba armado con espinas en frente de cada aleta dorsal, y su cabeza habría sido más semejante a la de un tiburón anguila. Es de suponerse que fue uno de los depredadores mas importantes de su tiempo. 
(Gracias a :iconpristichampsus: por dirigirme a sus listas de bichos prehistoricos, donde me enteré del  Kaibabvenator por primera vez)

Drawn by the smell of blood, a Kaibabvenator circles the rock where a Dimetrodon devours its prey. 
Inspired on something I heard recently about Dimetrodon having been apparently a semi-aquatic animal (which doesn´t surprise anymore, what with Spinosaurus...) As for Kaibabvenator, it was a primitive shark (a ctenacanthiform) measuring up to six meters long and weighing about one tone, being comparable to the great white shark of our days. Unlike it, tho, it was armed with spines in both dorsal fins and its head would've been more similar to that of a frilled shark. It is thought to have been one of the top predators of its time. 
(Thanks to :iconpristichampsus: for directing me to his prehistoric creature lists, where I found this beauty)

Gharial Burial by HodariNundu
Gharial Burial
Dos Sivapithecus macho pelean en la rama de un árbol. El vencedor se queda con las hembras locales; el perdedor será arrojado al río, donde ya esperan los gaviales hambrientos... 
Sivapithecus fue un pariente cercano del orangután, pero algunas especies alcanzaban tamaños similares a los de los gorilas modernos. Gavialis pachyrhynchus fue un gavial colosal; se le han calculado de 13 a 17 metros de longitud! D:  Y no, aparentemente no es lo mismo que Rhamphosuchus (vivió antes, en el Mioceno), pero por si acaso, quise darle un ligero aire de falso gavial... :B 
Y creian que el Piscogavialis era malo...

Two Sivapithecus males fight each other high in a tree; the winner gets the local females; the loser gets thrown into the river, where the hungry gharials already wait...
Sivapithecus was a close relative of the orangutan, but some species were as big as modern day gorillas. Gavialis pachyrhynchus was a colossal gharial; its been estimated at 13-18 meters! D: And no, apparently its not the same as Rhamphosuchus (it lived earlier, during the Miocene), but just in case, I wanted to give it sort of a false gharial air...
And you thought Piscogavialis was scary... :B
