**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...

The Pack by HodariNundu
The Pack
Observando desde lo alto de una colina, los nómadas prehistóricos saben que han llegado a tierras demasiado peligrosas como para cruzarlas; las manadas de feroces carniceros pueden ya haber venteado su presencia. 
Sketch rapido a lapiz inspirado en una famosa hipotesis, segun la cual la presencia de hienas cavernarias pudieron haber sido uno de los factores (si no es que el mas importante) que impidieron a los humanos alcanzar Alaska durante gran parte de la Edad de Hielo, y tambien en los recientes avistamientos de lobos y hienas rayadas cazando juntos en el desierto de Israel, cosa que podria ser una respuesta a condiciones ambientales adversas o bien un fenómeno que siempre ha ocurrido pero que hasta ahora no se habia registrado (tanto las hienas como los lobos del Medio Oriente son sumamente dificiles de estudiar). En el sketch decidí poner una manada mixta con lobos (que en el Pleistoceno y en aquellas regiones eran mas grandes y de mandibulas mas poderosas que en la actualidad) cazando al lado de una hiena cavernaria. Segun los cientificos, puede que los lobos en Israel se beneficien del sentido del olfato superior de la hiena (razon por la cual en el sketch es ésta la que se percata de la presencia de los humanos a la distancia antes que sus compañeros). :B

Watching from atop a hill, prehistoric nomads realize they've reached lands too dangerous to cross; the fearsome pack may have sensed their presence already. 
Quick pencil sketch inspired on a famous hypothesis according to which the presence of cave hyenas may have been an important, if not the most important factor that prevented humans from reaching Alaska for a great part of the Ice Age, as well as recent sightings and records of wolves and striped hyenas seemingly hunting together in the Israel desert; this could be a response to new environmental conditions, or perhaps even something that has always happened and just hadn´t been recorded before (both stripes hyenas and Middle Eastern wolves are really difficult to study). In this sketch I wanted to mix wolves (which were bigger and had stronger jaws during the Pleistocene) hunting along with a cave hyena. According to scientists, the Israel wolves may benefit from the hyena's superior sense of smell, which is why in this sketch, it is the hyena that catches the scent of the humans in the distance before its packmates). :B

Cercopithecoides by HodariNundu
Cercopithecoides
Las hembras y jóvenes han huido a las ramas más altas del árbol, pero el macho dominante se queda atrás para desafiar al depredador. Cercopithecoides fue un mono de gran tamaño; en la especie mas grande los machos podían pesar mas de 50 kilos, siendo considerablemente mayores que los mandriles y babuinos modernos. Considerando lo peligrosos que son los monos cuando se enfurecen (¡incluso los pequeños!), este es otro bicho prehistorico con el que nadie querría tener que verselas...
Uno de tantos bichos que he querido doodlear desde hace tiempo pero no habia tenido tiempo U-U 

The females and young have fled to the high branches, but the troop leader stays behind to challenge the predator. Cercopithecoides was a very large monkey; in the largest species, males could weigh up to 50 kgs or more, being considerably bigger than mandrills or baboons. Considering how dangerous monkeys are when angered or cornered (even small ones!) this is yet another prehistoric critter you wouldn´t want to deal with...
One of many creatures I've been meaning to doodle for a while but hadn´t had the time U-U

Arachnoraptor damocles by HodariNundu
Arachnoraptor damocles

Diminuto pero mortífero dinosaurio de afinidades inciertas, puede que Arachnoraptor esté emparentado con los escansoriopterígidos. Es arborícola y se distingue por sus larguisimos dedos, que le permiten trepar por las ramas, y colgarse cabeza abajo para atrapar a los pequeños animales- insectos, mamíferos y lagartijas- que constituyen su alimento.
Puede lanzar los brazos hacia adelante con asombrosa velocidad, apresando a su victima entre sus dedos con garras y llevandosela a la boca en una fracción de segundo. Sus inmensos ojos le permiten ver en la penumbra y le otorgan visión binocular, pero tambien cuenta con "pelos" sensibles en los dedos que le ayudan a detectar el roce de cualquier presa incluso en las noches más oscuras. 

Aunque no me sorprendería si un bicho así fuera descubierto algun dia, A. damocles es una invención mía, dedicada a mi amigo :iconhueycuetzpalin: por su cumpleaños :B Si alguien puede apreciar un dino araña, es él :B

Diminutive but deadly, this dinosaur's classification remains uncertain; it may be related to scansoriopterygids. Arboreal, it can be easily recognized for its long fingers and toes which allow it to climb and hang from branches upside down to capture the small animals- insect, mammal or lizard- that make up its diet.
It can snatch its prey and take it to its mouth with amazing speed, and its enormous eyes allow it to see in dim light conditions as well as providing binocular vision, but it also has sensitive "hairs" on its fingers which help it detect any close objects even in the darkest nights. 

Although I wouldn´t be surprised if such a critter was discovered for real one day, A. damocles is actually my creation, dedicated to friend :iconhueycuetzpalin: for his birthday, cause if someone can appreciate a spider-dino, I know it's him :B
