sunbathing Deinocheirus by Hyrotrioskjan sunbathing Deinocheirus by Hyrotrioskjan
Hi, if you see this, note that the picture of the creature you are looking at was just based on a rough description, is full of flaws and gives you not really a good insight in the weirdness which the new fossil material of this animal suggests!!!

Another quick drawing/painting, without references, so it's definately more Paleoart than Paleontography.
At first I thought this is a very late April fool, but well the best stories are written by nature, right? =D

Beside the new design it's also another picture for my sunbathing nonavian dinosaur series: hyrotrioskjan.deviantart.com/a…
the small guys under the Deinocheirus are Shuvuuia derserti



p.s. would you mind if I call this animal now Struthiocamelus the ostrich cammel (not Struthio camelus, the african ostrich) ;)

We don't know, and it was maybe a hump not a sail =)

Like camels it would make since given the fact they lived in similar environments both may have had similar lifestyles as well a distance traveling herbivore needing fat and nutrion reserves

Actually the environment was more like the Okavango Delta... how I figured out later.

I heard that it was a mix of marshy and desert perhaps I'm wrong

Well, maybe not whole Mongolia and not always during the cretaceous, but the Nemegt-Formation was: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemegt_F…

I find it odd how almost everybody who isn't educated in paleontology thinks everywhere in the past was an ice age or a jungle, seasons change and climates differ

Indeed, such stereotypes are very common :nod:
