Balaur Grabs Dinner by HodariNundu Balaur Grabs Dinner by HodariNundu
Otro dibujo fantasioso y hodarizado. Un Balaur bondoc atrapa un pájaro en pleno vuelo, desplazandose velozmente por las copas de los árboles por medio de braquiación.
Este dibujo esta inspirado en monos como el colobo y el mono araña que tienen un pulgar muy reducido o ausente, convirtiendo la mano en una especie de gancho especial para balancearse por las ramas de los árboles. Los primates mas habiles en braquiación han sido vistos capturando pajaros y murcielagos al vuelo.
El Balaur al parecer solo tenia dos dedos en las manos, en vez de tres como los otros raptores. La verdad quizá no signifique nada; solo me pareció una idea divertida.


Another flight of fancy. A Balaur bondoc captures a bird in mid air while brachiating through the tree tops.
This drawing was inspired by monkeys such as the spider monkey and the colobus which have reduced or absent thumbs. The brachiating champions against primates have been seen catching birds in mid flight.
Balaur had two fingers in each hand instead of two like other raptors. Truth is this probably doesn´t mean anything but I thought the idea was fun.

This whole "monkey-raptors" concept is pretty awesome, and even plausible, given the Balaur's biology.

Really cool idea, albeit an implausible if not nigh-impossible one for a dromaeaosaur/avialan.

I remember the TV series Primeval had an episode with tree climbing dromaeosaurs.
I think your portrayal of this concept looks better though. ^^ (especially seeing as you have made yours appropriately feathered).

I like your explorations into species that could have been. Yes, a colobus monkey was my first thought.

My only comment would be that as a brachiator, he would probably have had binocular vision...both eyes would have been pointed forward.

Keep up what you're doing. If people don't get it it's their loss.

No sabía que habían llamado así a tus dibujos... lo raro es que tus ideas especulativas son establecidas así, y yo no les veo problema, como estos Balaur tan curiosos. Son un ejercicio artístico, al fin y a cabo, aunque como dice el dicho, nadie es moneda de oro para caerle bien a todos :)

you should be proud that your artwork pisses off so many hardcore dinosaur nerds.

And technically Hodo, you're reconstructions are based off of observations of real-life animal behavior; and it can be argued that ecological traits and behaviors are shared by different orders of animals, wouldn't they?

I'm a "hardcore dinosaur nerd" in many respects, but I like Hodari's stuff. It may not always be scientifically accurate (though he has definitely improved in that respect over time), but I don't mind fantastical takes on dinosaurs, and he does show greater inventiveness and out-of-the-box thinking than some other dino-artists.

Perhaps I should've worded that better; just about everyone including myself would fit that description. I suppose only stuffed-shirts with no sense of artistic license would be "offended".

Es verdad, la vida en la prehistoria fue muy diversa, no debemos de quedarnos con ideas preconcebidas sobre un espécimen, pudo tener comportamientos bizarros que no solo los huesos o fragmentos de ellos nos puedan dar, ni siquiera un archivo PDF de 500 hojas nos puede decir ni la mínima parte de lo que hizo en vida! ;)
No debemos limitarnos a lo que los supuestos genios de la paleontología nos dicen! :D
