Inspired by @triceratopsian , I decided to try paleo doodles again for the first time in years. Here's the Late Pleistocene Damaliscus hypsodon, the East African Blesbok described in Faith et al. (2012)--one of the most important taxa in my PhD research

Ceratosaurus dentisulcatus patroling a forest shortly after a fire, possibly for some BBQ. This one's fairly old now (May 14, 2016) but I still like the coloration and overall idea quite a bit.

Anoxic environments and settings are ideal for the fossil preservation. This frog specimen of the genus (3,1 Ma) was the first to be located in the site. You can see the articulated bones and the muscle tissue. It was good start! 🥳

Hoploparia are represented by some really cool fossils in Canada, like this one! They also might have been occasional prey for mosasaurs
