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?

i do think the quinka would have won or they wouldn't kill each other like most of the time

There was apparently a fragmentry specimen of Quinkana 6±1m long.

books.google.at/books?id=AvPHR…

That croc at least would utterly demolish any marsupial lion both figuratively and literally.

A 3m Quinkana from the Pleistocene, not 100% sure, but it'll be a hell of a fight.

Which should be even more true, since these two carnivores and their contemporaries should still exist, except we wiped them out of existence.

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.....

At least this isn't the giant lizard, than even at parity the mammal loses more than half the time (though not all the time)

yep but even against that a three meter sized thylacoleo had a good chance if it avoids the head and tail

caspion161 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015
true the thylacoleo could grapple and had the teeth and maybe the jaws but not the poison like the megalania so it would be a pretty close fight well depends on the size if it was a three meter sized one it could win well if the marsupial lion would have grown to three meters

If it does, but the lizard is more mobile. Still would be far from uneven.

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.

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 para escalar árboles o excarbar bajo tierra. Pero ahora k lo pienso, tu teoria de k era un cazador activo parece más viable que un carroñero especializado.

Also, thylacoleo's "teeth" weren't designed to crush bones, just for slicing through flesh. Quinkana's armor would be more than a match for him.

Doubt Thylacoleo would stand much of a chance against a 5 meter long land crocodile, the largest land predator in australia at that time, after Megalania.
