Monsters from Mexico by HodariNundu Monsters from Mexico by HodariNundu
Acosado por un grupo de albertosaurios, un enorme Coahuilaceratops magnacuerna macho lucha por liberarse de una trampa de fango. Al mismo tiempo, dos Labocania son atraidos por los ruidos y los olores, con la esperanza de conseguir una comida facil.
Aunque la mayoria cree que Labocania fue un tiranosauroide, al menos un paleontologo que conozco cree que podría ser el primer abelisaurio norteamericano. No se si ha habido más avances con el fosil de Labocania pero sea como sea, la imagen de un abelisaurio alimentandose de las sobras de los tiranosaurios me parece una idea interesante :>

Harassed by a pack of albertosaurs, a huge bull Coahuilaceratops magnacuerna struggles to free himself from a mud trap. Meanwhile, two Labocania are attracted by the smells and noises, hoping to get an easy meal.
Although most believe Labocania is a tyrannosauroid, at least one paleontologist I spoke to believes that it may be North America's first known abelisaur. I don´t know if there's been any advances with the Labocania fossil but anyhow, the idea of an abelisaur scavenging the kills of the tyrannosaurs seems like a cool idea to me :>

I'm interested (knowing this is an old picture, but I digress) about what would make that paleontologist believe it could be an Abelisaur.

I don´t remember, I spoke to him a long time ago. He did show me some photos of the fossil but its really nothing to write home about.

I thought the dinosaurs in the picture were Carnotaurus at first, until I read the description. When I saw it I felt like commenting that "you stole my idea"! To explain, I'm doing an art and writing series, which is about a world where various prehistoric species (mammals and dinosaurs alike) survived to the present day and in the series, Carnotaurus crossed into Mexico and the southwestern states of the USA (e.g. Utah, Arizona and Nevada) in the Great Faunal Interchange, along with terror birds, glyptodonts and other animals. That's not the only distributional change I've made. To name but a few, I've got Troodon and Nanuqsaurus in Norway, Spinosaurus in southern Europe, Velociraptors in the Middle East and Coelophysis in the UK!

I'm still working on the project (trying to get my sister, who's the real artist out of us, to help, as well as planning locales), along with many, many others, but am being bogged down by things such as A levels and ill elderly relatives (I was gonna start doing it after my AS levels ended, but my grandmother developed pneumonia and was seriously ill for weeks)! I'm going to be using a lot of obscure animals - in fact, many species of animal that you've depicted in your artwork. Don't worry, I will credit you for telling me about these creatures.

She's OK now, thanks for asking. She recovered and was dismissed from hospital (a huge relief for us as her sister, my great-aunt, died earlier this year after a long battle with liver cancer) and is getting better by the day. I also had to visit my other grandmother (on Mum's side), as she had to have a tumour removed from her leg (I was paranoid about it being cancerous. It wasn't), which left me with virtually no time to start doing the project in.

Don't worry, I will send you a link when I've got something (which is when I've convinced my sister to help and matched a creature with a locale), but I've got school in a couple of days, and a million things to do both here and on Fanfiction.net (I've got an account and some pretty ambitious stories planned). So don't expect anything until at least late October/early November. Possibly even later than that, given that my Mum will force me to spend time with various extended family round about that time, partially due to the irritating fact she, for some reason, disapproves of EVERYTHING I like/do.

I'm also planning a Prehistoric Park-esque project (based on an RPG on Jplegacy that I frequented, the announcement of Jurassic World and our very own Julio Lacerda's The Aquarium series, as well as halfpennyro04's Dinosaur Zoo project and Hyrotrioskjan's Global Dinosaur Monument project), and periodically posting character and creature designs for my fanfics (I specialise in Simpsons fanfiction and monster stories) and maybe comic versions of some of the fanfics in question. As well as, of course, just random junk done for the fun of it.

Great picture,looks like a dino version of the La Brea tar pits,it captures the look of primeval scene form the late Cretaceous very well.

As for the Labocania,its classification is still somewhat dubious,but it is generally now thought of as a tyrannosaur,the ide of another northern abelisaur other than the fragmental Tarascosaurus is certainly interesting.

What other dinosaurs lived with Coahuilaceratops, Labocania (I consider it as a Tyrannosaur), and the Abelisaurid at that time?

The abelisaur in this pic is supossed to be Labocania; there's no more evidence of any abelisaurs living in Mexico.

Apparently they coexisted with big Lambeosaurus-type hadrosaurs, ankylosaurs and ornithomimids amongst other creatures.

Nobody really knows. A paleontologist I know believes it may be North America's first abelisaur. He suggested this scene in the first place :>

That's really cool, and really realistic. I love the way the coahuila thrashes around.

But....even Tarascosaurus and that strange tyrannosauroid bone from Australia are quite doubtful bits, aren't they? Couldn't labo be a tyrannosaur after all?
Maybe a small, stunted carcharodontosaur or allosaur? Neovenatorid?

it would be interesting if Abelisaurids were North America, and why not? we've got most of em in South America, and a couple species in India, which are thousands of miles apart. To be honest, i doubt that the Labocania will win, but, who knows?

Hey, we don't know Everything about life ourselves, so odds are, there were abelisaurs in possibly North America... considered only a theory.
