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...

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.

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

Pisco Piscandi by HodariNundu
Pisco Piscandi
Distraídas en medio de su frenesí alimenticio, las Piscobalaena adultas no tienen idea de que un hambriento cocodrilo marino Piscogavialis le ha echado el ojo a su cría. La pregunta es, ¿logrará escapar? D: 
Piscobalaena nana fue una ballena del grupo de los cetotéridos (es decir, pariente de la actual Caperea), que apenas medía menos de cinco metros de longitud en la edad adulta. Piscogavialis fue un gavial marino de hasta 8 metros de longitud que seguramente se alimentaba principalmente de peces, considerando la forma de sus dientes y su hocico, pero considerando que los gaviales y falsos gaviales modernos llegan a capturar presas mas grandes ocasionalmente, y que el Pisco era mucho mas grande que ellos, ¿quien sabe? Quizá no hacía ascos a un poco de carne roja cuando se le ponía a tiro...
Sea como sea, debe haber sido una visión fantástica, un cocodrilo de 8 metros nadando tranquilamente en aguas costeras en busca de golosinas, algo asi como el cocodrilo de Peter Pan... :B
Ambos animales vivieron durante el Mioceno-Plioceno en lo que hoy es Sudamérica. 

Distracted and in the midst of a feeding frenzy, the adult Piscobalaena fail to notice that their calf is being targeted by a hungry sea croc Piscogavialis. The question is, will the calf escape? D: 
Piscobalaena nana was a cetotherid whale (that is, a relative of today's Caperea), barely five meters long or so when fully grown. Piscogavialis was a giant sea gharial up to 8 meters long, which surely fed mostly on fish considering its long, narrow jaws and teeth, but if we consider that both gharials and false gharials go for larger prey ocassionally, and that Pisco was a lot larger than them, who knows? Maybe it wouldn´t say no to red meat when the opportunity presented itself... 
Either way, imagine what a fantastic sight, an 8 meter long crocodile slowly cruising the coastal waters searching for snacks, kind of like the crocodile from Peter Pan... :B 
Both animals lived during the Miocene-Pliocene in what is today South America.

If you could bring back 10 recently extinct birds, extinct mammals, extinct reptiles, which would you choose?

Hmm good question... I would say Imperial woodpecker (which lived around where I live right now), the Haast's eagle, moa, dodo, elephant bird, passenger pigeon, Guadalupe caracara, laughing owl and Stephen island's wren... hmmm and there must be others but I can´t remember right now :B

As for the others, you mean recently extinct, or just extinct in general?

Hmm... mammals, I can think of the Mexican grizzly, thylacine, Antarctic wolf, baiji, Steller's sea cow, Javan/Bali tiger, auroch, quagga and Megaladapis (but of course, if I could bring all of them back, I would :(

Unfortunately, I don´t remember many recently extinct reptiles.
