**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...

Puma by HodariNundu
Puma
Eso, un puma :B

En Sudamérica hay muchas leyendas sobre pumas amistosos, hasta el punto de ser llamado "amigo del cristiano", y sin embargo, los pumas probablemente se han comido mas gente que los jaguares (tradicionalmente más temidos desde tiempos antiguos...)

That, a puma :B

In South America there's plenty of legends about friendly pumas, to the point of being called "friend to the Christian", and yet pumas have probably eaten more people than jaguars (which are more traditionally feared)

Deinocheirus looked absolutely nothing like a spoonbill after all! And its stomach contents were found, too!

phenomena.nationalgeographic.c…

By the way, to everyone who told me it had feet like a jacana... are you sure you've ever seen one? :B

Very cool dino. Yet another mystery solved. :>
Ocelot by HodariNundu
Ocelot
Más práctica de mamíferos :B Un dato interesante sobre el ocelote; su nombre no viene del Latín "ocellus" sino de "ocelotl", palabra nahuatl para el jaguar. El hecho de que su piel está cubierta de manchas ("ocelos") realmente nunca tuvo nada que ver. D: Eso si, le quedó perfecto...

More mammal practice :B An interesting fact about the ocelot- its name comes not from Latin "ocellus" but from "ocelotl", the nahuatl (aztec) word for jaguars. The fact that its skin is covered on spots (ocellated) really didn´t have anything to do with its name. Fits it perfectly, tho...

Khalkotaurus, Finally! by HodariNundu
Khalkotaurus, Finally!
Khalkotaurus prefiere no ser molestado por raptores impertinentes. :B
No puedo creer que me haya tomado mas de dos meses encontrar el tiempo para dibujar esto D: Por eso no me gusta tomar requests- no me gusta tener a la gente esperando. :/ Mis disculpas a :iconelithedinoguy: quien inventó éste ceratópsido en primer lugar (pueden ver el original aquí The Knew Ceratopsian), y que fue nombrado por su servidor en honor a los toros de la Cólquide de la mitologia griega (que estaban hechos de metal y arrojaban fuego por la boca, porque, Hefesto).

Khalkotaurus would rather not be bothered by impertinent raptors :B
Can´t believe it took me over two months to find the time to draw this D: This is why I don´t take requests- I don´t like to keep people waiting. :/
My apologies to :iconelithedinoguy: who invented this ceratopsian in the first place (see his original here The Knew Ceratopsian) and gave me the honor of naming it, which I did after the Colchis bulls (Khalkotauroi) of Greek mythology, which were made of metal and breathed fire, because, Hephaestus.

Hope you like it!

Hopless but not hopeless by HodariNundu
Hopless but not hopeless
Interrumpido en medio de un duelo con machos de su propia especie, un Sthenurus (canguro gigante de cara corta) se ve obligado a luchar por su vida contra un Megalania hambriento. :B
Inspirado por la noticia de que (segun un estudio reciente) los canguros de cara corta como Sthenurus y Procoptodon probablemente no se movían a saltos, sino caminando de forma bipeda como los humanos (o los dinosaurios carnivoros D:) Lo cual habría sido muy bizarro de ver... originalmente iba a dibujar solo un Sthenurus caminando, pero ya lo han hecho antes, y al fin me decidí por algo un poco mas épico :B

Interrupted in mid duel against males of his own species, a Sthenurus (giant short-faced kangaroo) is forced to fight for his very life against a hungry Megalania :B
Inspired by news that- according to a recent study-, giant kangaroos like Sthenurus and Procoptodon probably didn´t move by hopping, but rather by walking bipedally like humans (or theropod dinosaurs D:) Which must have been very bizarre to see.
I was originally going to draw simply a walking Sthenurus, but its been done before, and at the end I went for the more epic scene :B

Thanks! So do I, I've been working very hard to get it done. Kinda nerve-wrecking when you get to the point when it depends completely on other people D:

You know how, whenever you're passing by a house with dogs in its front yard, the dogs will run out and bark at you with no provocation whatsoever? Strange that you almost never see the same behavior from wild animals at the zoo. Instead they're always lounging around their pens, minding their own business.

Given that, what are the odds that some scientist at Jurassic Park got "frog" and "dog" confused and injected dog DNA into the dinosaurs' genomes? The words do rhyme in English, and the dinosaurs did end up much more eager to see people than conventional zoo animals...

I really hope they didn´t go overboard with the dog DNA... I kinda hate it when they make pretty much everything behave like a dog in movies D:

And yeah, I know that annoying behavior too well- the house where I'm living has no less than five dogs which spend the entire day barking, they drive me crazy... :(
