My Butt Is Watching You by HodariNundu My Butt Is Watching You by HodariNundu
Un Ojoceratops disfruta de su almuerzo, confiado en que los ojos falsos en su trasero intimidan a la gran mayoria de depredadores, y que cualquiera que decida atacar el extremo opuesto tendrá que enfrentarse a sus mortíferos cuernos.
Este dibujo está inspirado, por supuesto, en el nombre "Ojoceratops" y en la fantástica mariposa Caligo u "ojo de búho" de nuestros dias, que usa ojos falsos para espantar a los pájaros y otros depredadores.

An Ojoceratops enjoys its lunch, confident that the false eyes on its butt will intimidate most predators, and any that decides to attack the opposite end will have to face its deadly horns.
This drawing is inspired of course by the name "Ojoceratops", as "ojo" means "eye" in Spanish, and also by the fantastic Caligo butterfly of our times, which uses false eyes to frighten birds and other predators.

We can only imagine what the color patterns were for these guys. If you ask me, this was probably a trick used by the smallest herbivores that lacked horns and armor.

I like to think of Ankylosaurids having eye-spots on their tail clubs to make it look like a "false head", kind of like this:

A rather intriguing idea. I always enjoy your crazy interpretations of paleo-biology since (as things like pigmentation and behavioral clues rarely makes themselves evident via fossil evidence) it does seem like they could possibly be right. Am I making sense here?

Yes. :> I always think dinosaurs must have been (externally) much more varied and "colorful" than we believe. In many books, dinosaurs of any given group look like slight variations of the same themes, but then again, the Carnivora, for example, would seem like that if we had only bones to go by.

Es una teoría interesante. Muy hodarizada, pero por otro lado le añade a la función disuasoria de los cuernos y placas, no hay forma de saber si le apuntas al extremo correcto del animal.
El tiranosaurio emplumado... es un juvenil?

Claro, claro. Lo que hacen el tamaño y la experiencia...
Lo decía por lo de las plumas. No me convencen los tiranosaurios adultos emplumados, excepto Yutyrannus. Al menos nada más grande que un Dryptosaurus.

Judging by the fact that nothing would have eyes that big, I doubt a predator would think of such markings as the eyes of a giant creature or something.. It works for the butterfly because the spots are exactly the size and shape of an owl's eyes, which are very big and evident. In the case of dinosaurs, the eyes were so relatively small and insignificant in forming the image of a theropod that trying to mimick them wouldn't make much sense. But on the other hand such big and obvious markings could be intimidating for whatever other reason.

(Sorry if it wasn't meant to be taken seriously)

Then again, the frills themselves could have eye markings matching the ones in the butt.

That makes sense. Either eye markings or any other easily recognizable shape/color could work.

It wasn´t precisely meant to be taken seriously- more like an interesting slash comical slash visually interesting concept, but still, I think it would at least startle some creatures... not precisely what you expect to see in your prey's butt. :D
