Duel Down Under by HodariNundu Duel Down Under by HodariNundu
Thylacoleo y Quinkana se enfrentan por primera vez, pero acostumbrados a cazar y no a ser cazados, ninguno de los dos está seguro de si el otro es una presa potencial, o un enemigo...

Thylacoleo and Quinkana face each other for the first time, but used to hunt instead of being hunted, none of them is sure about the other- is it potential prey, or an enemy?

mismatch in favour of reptile.

Funny how Australia had the ultimate carnivorous land mammal yet it was pathetic compared to two sauropsid predators that ruled supreme.....

I always wondered what an encounter between a Quinkana and a Megalania would be,both were about the same size,and its intriguing to think about witch one would dominate the other.

Also I wonder how either of them would deal with a saltwater crocodile,witch can also grow to 20 feet in lengh,also I have seen documentaries of komodo dragons going into the ocean near the coast for a swim,so its possible that the Megalania might done that from time to time in witch case it could have come into a fight with a large saltwater croc.

Also I like that you drew Thylacoleo with striped on his back side just like with a Tasmanian wolf, I have heard of a aborigine drawing that was identified as a marsupial lion by paleontologists that shows the animal with thylacine like stripes on his back side,its might be that this particular placement of stripes was present in all larger marsupial carnivores.

I would imagine the crocodile would have the advantage. Terrestrial animals must focus on swimming when in the water- very few would be able to fight and avoiding drowning at the same time.

True on land it might be different,Megalania is believed to have had poisonous glands that would fill its saliva with toxin that would cause fatal infections to the  wound,but the question is on wheater he could puncher the armored scales of either the land croc or saltwater croc.

In the fight between giant reptile vs giant mammal, im always rooting for the reptile

Looks like Megalania has even more competition.And I'm not talking about the Thylacoleo.

K dieta crees k tenia thylacoleo? Yo creo k debia ser un especialista en comer una sol parte de los cadaveres. No se cual, pero me lo imagino como un animal altamente especializado.

Tal vez. Creo haber leído que no estaba bien adaptado para triturar huesos así que probablemente comía las partes blandas y el resto quedaba para los demonios de Tasmania y demás oportunistas...

Quizá él mismo era un carroñero especialista en comer las visceras.
