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) ;)

Question is it using the fin to help sun bake

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

I had problems too for a long time, but especially because of my GDM and the Jurassic Germany Project I learned alot, my only advise can be: look at photos and practice, practice... and practice =)

Magnificent work as always, but there's a little something certain palaeontologist would like to point out: twitter.com/TomHoltzPaleo/stat…

Well, that's one more reason to call it Paleoart, not paleontography =)
How I wrote in the description this is made without any references and I must say that's long ago that I read something about Ornithomimosaurs which was longer than a few sentences ;)

awesome work :D 

what's with teh sunbathing dinosaurs though? i've noticed a trend on DeviantArt of sunbathing dinosaurs all of a sudden, where did that come from?
Reply
:iconhyrotrioskjan:
Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
Origin of that trend was a Tet-zoo article about sunbathing birds where Darren Naish asked for sunbathing non-avian dinosaurs: blogs.scientificamerican.com/t…

Kamelhöcker? Was hab' ich verpasst? Hat man etwa ein fast vollständiges Fossil gefunden?

Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013  Professional General Artist
Nicht nur eins sondern gleich zwei, bis auf den Schädel sind beide recht vollständig und wie sich zeigt hat verfügte Deinocheirus über ein kleines Segel oder einen Höcker, hier das Abstract: dml.cmnh.org/2013Nov/msg00009.…

Obwohl Strauße haben auch Gastrolithen im Magen und fressen trotzdem manchmal fast alles (Handschuhe, Gummischläuche, Plastiktüten, etc.)!

Oder vielleicht gerade WEGEN der Magensteine? XD

Hmmmm... Die meisten Tiere haben halt einen vielfältigen Speiseplan... Krokodile fressen manchmal Blätter und Schafe fressen manchmal nistende Seevögel... :iconsheepplz:
