I thought these proportions looked about right - the key thing is that the head is proportionally very large.. as in, longer than the distance between the limb girdles.

If I ever get to do JTTM vol. 2 which would deal with the Cretaceous, this is one of the taxa I would be most looking forward to reconstruct! I definitely like the direction you went with your reconstruction!

I would love to see you do this animal. My illustration is very speculative but I can't exclude it from the project concerned. Teeth had not been added when this pic was taken.

Super influential from my my childhood: the amazing, incredibly detailed art of Piero Cozzaglio...

Another 4 or 5 animals to tidy before the revised crocodylomorph montage is done. Nearly finished on re-doing the mahajangasuchid Kaprosuchus - previous version was too long in the legs.

Digging through old artwork, here's a never finished bunch of sketches designed to show competing ideas on the feeding behaviour of oviraptorids (shown with feathering etc now known to be very much incorrect).

The Spring migration continues with news that the adventerous Humboldt fitted with a GPS transmitter in April 2019 has returned. After a winter spent in Mali and Mauritania he traveled around 300km a day to get back to the Pyrénées.

🦜 Parrot Of The Day 🗓 18h
Important not to misread this story. The night parrot definitely exists! As notes: “John Young’s initial discovery of the night parrot was genuine”. It’s his subsequent claims that have been retracted by after this investigation.

"In our current climate where science is constantly being questioned and targeted, the idea of creating a film where scientists are heroes I thought was really important." Seriously I fucking love this man )

Found something pretty amazing during a mini-survey today; a juvenile grass snake entangled with a slow worm. I had intended to take my camera and wished I had when we saw this.

They're baaaack. We've started to receive our first records of the season with the haunting calls of the Moaning Frog (Heleioporus eyrei), a native to southwest WA. Autumn is a great time of year for frogging in that region, we look forward to hearing all those submissions! 🐸😀

Sorry for being a little late, but here's day 21 of my palette challenge (palettes found here: ), and thus the last of the 2017 dinosaurs. Ending 2017 is the colorful Borealopelta in #6, heading down to get a drink.
