Un Carcharodontosaurus se lleva una dolorosa sorpresa cuando un Bahariasaurus acorralado se pone casuarioso y le rompe la mandíbula de una patada :B
Bahariasaurus fue un teropodo gigante, probablemente de hasta 12 o 13 metros, pero es poco lo que se sabe de el. Al parecer ultimamente se ha hablado de la posibilidad de que pudiera ser un pariente gigante del Limusaurus, en vez de un "carnosaurio" como se creía.
Esta versión con cresta a la casuario esta basada este concepto por :icontarbosaurusbatar:… aunque lamentablemente no quedé muy satisfecho con el resultado. Ya haré otra despues, cuando tenga mas tiempo. :(

A Carcharodontosaurus gets a painful surprise when a cornered Bahariasaurus goes all cassowary on him and breaks his jaw with one kick :B
Bahariasaurus was a giant theropod, probably in the 12-13 meter range, but very little is known about it. Apparently, there's been talk lately of it being a giant relative to Limusaurus, instead of a "carnosaur" as formerly believed.
This crested, cassowary-like version is based on this concept by :icontarbosaurusbatar:… but regrettably, I wasn´t much satisfied with the result. I shall try another one day, when I have more time :(

Meanwhile check this previous drawing, with a dino I dreamed but that could be an alternate version of Bahariasaurus, who knows :B…

"there's been talk lately" translates to "some people on deviant-art have speculated this", nothing has been said about this by actual Paleontologists. I think the very distinct long arms and shoulder-blade of Deltadroaeus/Bahariasaurus might indicate that this creature was not Elaphrosaur/Limusaur-like, and that it may be more of a noasaur/ceratosaur type creature. I know that there is no reason to attribute even Bahariasaurus teeth to this animal, but I still think a bunch of speculation by amateurs is kind of putting the cart before the horse. Unless of course this is simply a Hodarization, in which case, all bets are off.

My rant is not directed at your art, Nundu. Simply at the attitude taken about this mostly baseless idea on deviantart that Deltadromeus could be like Limusaurus, there is no paleontologist that has said anything like this, no analysis of skeletal characteristics, yet somehow this has become an artistic meme with deviantart paleo-artists.

But now that you mention it, what do you think of the art? :B

I didn´t mean paleontologists by "there's been talk"; I have no idea what paleontologists say or say not, except for what I read on news sites or am told by other people, so yeah, it may as well be just speculation by folks who dig dinosaurs... just not literally. In other words, yes, take it as a Hodarization. Hell, take all of my stuff as a Hodarization. What else could it possibly be? :B

As for the "deviantart paleo-artists" part, I wish I could somehow separate myself from that label, because it's become a very well defined community where everyone knows each other and there's a set of rules and expectations, and really really dedicated people who spend most of their time doing research for their art so they're as exact and updated as possible. I just can´t compete with that, and I don´t intend to, but unfortunately, I AM at Deviantart and I DO draw prehistoric themed stuff so I'm probably not going to escape from being thrown into the same drawer in the near future.

(Not a rant, btw, just my thoughts)

I wasn't meaning to throw your fun-drawings with paleo-art, I know you don't like that. I just don't enjoy baseless speculation that goes mad and becomes a trend for no reason. It's just like that dodo-raptor Balaur stuff that was so popular (mind you, that was Andrea Cau, who is a paleontologist) people when wild with it until it was almost canon, then we found out that raptors clench their feet on their prey like eagles, so 2 claws is logic.

I would like to see actual professional word on if Deltadromeus/Bahariasaurus was in any way like Limusaurus in crucial characteristics. I would say not, since it has large grasping arms and a big shoulder. I just think that fan-speculation like this is just setting up to be blown-away when an actual discovery is made.

Your drawing is great, I think. I still think that a giant Limusaur is a possibility, just not for Bahariasaurus or Deltadromeus. I think Sigilmassasaurus is a better bet, since it actually may have had a small head.

The moral here being:
- People need to stop believing everything paleontologists say as if it was law written in stone
- All those African dinos need to be real Slim Shadys and please stand up. U-U

I'd be fine if people believed paleontologists, just not amateur paleo-artists speculating.

I'm not sure how realistic is this, but it is still cool.

Isn't Bahariasaurus a Deltadromeoid? It was related to Limusaurus, but it looked more like Deltadromeus and had teeth.

Unless I'm missing important news, no one knows what Deltadromeus looked like.
