The Eye of Sauroniops by HodariNundu The Eye of Sauroniops by HodariNundu
Los diminutos ancestros de hombres (y hobbits, y elfos, y enanos?) observan aterrados a un Sauroniops escondido entre la vegetacion que les devuelve la mirada.
Sauroniops es uno de esos frustrantes dinosaurios que son bautizados y descritos a partir de patéticos restos fragmentarios, de modo que realmente no tenemos idea de como se veian; pero su nombre, que significa "ojo de Sauron" era demasiado epico como para no dibujarlo :>
Sus restos fueron hallados en Marruecos y habría coexistido con Spinosaurus y Carcharodontosaurus.

The diminutive ancestors of men (and hobbits, and elves, and dwarves?) watch in horror as a Sauroniops hidden in the vegetation watches them back.
Sauroniops is one of those frustrating dinos named and described from pathetically fragmentary remains, so we really have no idea what they looked like; but its name, meaning "eye of Sauron", was too epic to be ignored.
Its remains were found in Morocco and it coexisted with Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus.

First Sauroniops in DA, apparently- at least under that name.

Eh, nice composition ;)

But, as far as i've read about this guy, i wouldn't be surprised if he'd turn out to be just a big Carcarodontosaurus (we just have a postorbital which looks veeeery similar to Carcha's ones only slightly larger, for Smaug's sake!)...

I actually agree. I'm not fond of this bad habit of naming new genera based on measly fragments like this one.
Kazuma27 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, but i guess it has to do with the fact some paleontologists wanna be famous, so naming a new species is the easiest way to gain fame and get the headlines...

There is no life in the stomach of Sauroniops, only death
