Big Bad Wolverine by HodariNundu Big Bad Wolverine by HodariNundu
Hace mucho que queria dibujar a este animal :> Plesiogulo monspessulanus fue un glotón gigante- hay quienes le consideran el ancestro del glotón actual- que podia alcanzar hasta 100 kilos de peso, el tamaño de un oso pequeño (y tres o cuatro veces mas grande que el glotón moderno).
Imaginen que semejante animal todavia merodeara hoy dia :D Plesiogulo vivió por todo el hemisferio norte durante el Mioceno y el Plioceno, aunque, como todo buen glotón, nunca fue muy abundante. Hubo otras especies, pero la mayoria eran mas pequeñas.

I've been wanting to draw this beast for a while now :> Plesiogulo monspessulanus was a giant wolverine- some say the ancestor of modern day wolverines- which could weigh up to 100 kgs, the size of a small bear (and three or four times bigger than modern wolverines).
Imagine if this animal still haunted our forests :D Plesiogulo lived in the entire Northern hemisphere during the Miocene and Pliocene although, in true wolverine fashion, it was never very abundant. There were other species but most were much smaller.

Yes :D I noticed while looking at pics of wolverines yawning and snarling that their teeth actually look a lot like a hyena's, and they've been called the "hyenas of the north" :D

Interesante que en el Neógeno los mustélidos se volvieran depredadores tan notables. Y me imagino que en su época Plesiogulo era el mejor en lo que hacía :D
