Palalophoraptor by Hyrotrioskjan Palalophoraptor by Hyrotrioskjan
Before we take a look at the early Oligocene I want to show you here a hypothetical encounter of a Plalophoraptor populator and two Thylacosmilus.
Palalophoraptor was maybe the first really big member of the Monopterna, large specimens reach perhaps 5 m in length. The few bones which were collected suggest that the animal wasn't the best flyer but more are like secretary birds.
After the arrival of the Aquilapoda from North america these giant Lophoraptorids extinct (Together with Thalacosmilus) and only a few smaller species remain.

The first drawing I made of the animal: [link]

The protrusion on the tiger's chin, is that a fang-holster?

Yes, it's a marsupial not a cat, these animals are a perfect example for convergent evolution.

Die Farbgebung und Schattierung des Plalophoraptor ist dir wahnsinnig gut gelungen. Die schuppige Struktur kommt echt gut zur Geltung! Die Thalacosmilus sind vielleicht eine Spur zu statisch, aber das wäre auch das einzige, was mir auffallen würde! Well done! :)

This is pretty cool. At first I thought it was a dinosaur taking on the marsupials, but some type of real dragon is a neat idea.

No offense, but my moneys on the thylacosmilus. Unless this draon really can breath fire...

My money is on the dragon. As Hyrotrioskjan explained, these guys have a venom that feels like fire, and from his earlier works- it is stated that it can kill through necrosis and through absorption into the bloodstreams through the skin in roughly 15 minutes. Also- this particular dragon has feet built for running with predatory talons; think cassowary. And finally, take into consideration its tail. A solid tail-whip from an average-sized Komodo Dragon can snap the leg of a human easily, and can even fracture the limbs of water buffalo. This dragon is twice that size- I don't want to know what it could do with its tail.

Oh yeah, and it can fly. I'd like to see the thylacosmilus get away safely after the dragon gets up in the air.

Wonderful piece. Although the dragon is not real I appreciate see something different to the confrontantions/comparisons between the metatherian and Smilodon. :)
By the way, the dead animal is Trigodon, right?
