Early dragons 5 by Hyrotrioskjan Early dragons 5 by Hyrotrioskjan
Hoofdragons are a strange group of animals. They lived during the Miocene in north america where they were the nightmare for all small animals. Because they hunted most time on the ground, the claws evolved, convergent to some mammels to hoofs.
Another feature is the hook-like snout. Togesther with a few other non hoofed they form the group of Hamignathidae

question: did this dragon evolve as a flying creature which returned to life on the ground a little bit or is it still a flying hunting dragon which evolved ungulate feet?

really cool, love the design, well done :) do you base them on dinosaurs or pterosaurs or both ?

My inspiration come from many groups. Dinosaurs, pterosaurs, birds, bats, synapsids, therapsids, crocodiles, monitors and so on...
Their ancestors are monitor lizards.

The head looks like a dilophosaur's without the crests.

I like the Dimetrodon-esque Head
were there any Herbivorous Dragons that Evolved, or were they all Carnivores?

I thinking about the possibility, by the way, some small species today eat fruit beside the meat

I could see the Evolution of an Herbivorous Dragon being similar to a the Evolution of Therizinosaurs: starting as Carnivores, and then being Isolated with little Prey, thus having to become an Herbivore

Heh, too tough for the terminator pig himself? Then I could imagine this dragon taking down, maybe, chalicotheres, rhinos, oreodonts, early camels with ease!

Well actually, Hyro said that the entelodon would snack on this. Note the double negative.

Indeed, but they exist not long enough for a evolution in this direction.

The fossils show sometimes bite-marks of animals like Hyaenodon. Because of their way of live near the ground, they often get catched by bigger predators. One reason for their extinction.

So I imagine that their venom did not help them by a lot, eh? Oh, and I noticed that you said over hunting was ONE of the reasons why they went extinction. Got any notion about the others?

Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011  Professional General Artist
We know not much about the venom of extinct animals =)
Other reasons for their extinction was the colder climate to the end of the Miocene and the appear of the first bigger Aquilapoda
