Pannoniasaurus Is Awesomesauce by HodariNundu Pannoniasaurus Is Awesomesauce by HodariNundu
Pannoniasaurus debe ser una de las criaturas prehistoricas mas geniales halladas recientemente; era un mosasaurio. De agua dulce. Con patitas.
Probablemente podía arrastrarse en tierra como un cocodrilo, y media entre cuatro y seis metros de largo; sus restos fueron hallados en Hungría.
Al parecer, al contrario que otros mosasaurios que vivian en el mar pero pasaban parte de su tiempo en agua salobre, el Pannoniasaurus pasaba toda su vida en agua dulce, ya que se han hallado restos de individuos de todas las edades en lo que alguna vez fueron ríos.
Aqui está uno haciendo contorsionismo para caber en la hoja de papel y emboscar a un infeliz Ajkaceratops.

Pannoniasaurus has to be one of the coolest prehistoric creatures discovered recently; it was a mosasaur. A fresh-water mosasaur. With legs.
It could probably walk on land like a crocodile, and was between four and six meters long.
Its remains were found in Hungary.
Unlike other mosasaurs that spent most of their time in saltwater and probably visited brackish water at times, there's evidence that Pannoniasaurus spent its entire life in freshwater, due to specimens of all ages being found in what were once rivers.
Here it is doing some serious contorsionism to fit in the paper sheet and ambush a hapless Ajkaceratops.

We have freshwater plesiosaurid's, freshwater pliosaurid's, and now a species of freshwater mosasaurid. All we need now is to find a species of freshwater ichthyosaurid. =)

 

By the way. How big was this Mosasaurid? I'd imagine it wouldn't of been that big since oceanic animals living in freshwater environments aren't as big as oceanic ones due to the fact a freshwater environment is smaller than a oceanic environment.

Crocodile sized, about 4-6 meters. Quite big for modern day standards

Actually, I just arrived from the 3 weeks of the Hungarian Dinosaur Expedition:) We found many bones of this animal, and I was happy when I saw this drawing. Thanks for it:) I really like the Ajkaceratops:) Thanks again!

My question is why you, the artist, always draw Komodo/Snake Tongue on Mosasaurid?

Because mosasaurs are very closely related to monitor lizards and snakes, and it is very possible that they did have this sort of tongue- I'm not the first one to draw them this way, actually. I first saw the forked-tongue mosasaur in this painting by the late Dan Varner:

There is actually no proof that this mosasaurs had really legs, it was only an assumption, but no limb bones were really found. It´s highly unlikely this mosasaurs re-evolved legs, because mosasaurs had already highly reduced hind flippers and an extremely weak pelvic area.
