Megaceloxus atlanticus by Hyrotrioskjan Megaceloxus atlanticus by Hyrotrioskjan
Megaceloxus is the first member (late oligocene to early miocene) of an very specialized dragon family which also contain Volatiosuchus, during their evolution they show some refining developements of their body plan for long-distance flight and fishing lifestyle. The neck became shorter but the snout longer and the teeth thinner, the tail became shorter and the keratinous crests larger.

Edit:
Because of some new informations and some material I get from colleagues it was necessary to redraw this animal, I also notice some flaws on my first dragons, so I will maybe remake the whole series again with much more effort on accuracy.

Yes =D
Because of the many salt they absorb with their food they need to excrete it somehow. Like iguanas from Galapogos they do it throw the nose and this individual tries to remove the salt crust =)
