Return to the Triassic by Zimices Return to the Triassic by Zimices
Un gran arcosaurio carnívoro ataca a un sinápsido herbívoro con grandes colmillos...

Cuando hacía este dibujo pensé que aunque la escena es del Mioceno de Colombia (hace 13 millones de años) era como salida del Triásico, antes de la dominación de los dinosaurios... El depredador es el cocodrilo terrestre Langstonia y el herbívoro es una especie de astrapoterio, Hilarcotherium castanedaii. A la izquierda, sobre un árbol hay dos monos aulladores, Stirtonia, y huyendo de la escena hay un ave insectívora, Galbula hylochoreutes y en el fondo el esparasodonte primitivo Hondadelphys.

------------------------------------

English: A large carnivorous archosaur attacks a herbivore synapsid with large tusks...

When I did this drawing I though that although the scene is from the Miocene of Colombia (13 million years ago), is like it was from the Triassic era, before the dominance of the dinosaurs ... The predator is the terrestrial crocodile Langstonia and the herbivore is a species of astrapothere, Hilarcotherium castanedaii. On the left, on a tree there are two howler monkeys, Stirtonia, and run away from the scene is a insectivorous bird, Galbula hylochoreutes and in the bottom the primitive sparassodont Hondadelphys.

Or also "there is nothing new under the Sun" :D Certainly the actors change, but the script is more or less the same through the time.

Totally, same script with having a heavy, osteodermed archosaur attacking heavy, herbivorous synapsid.

Well, when someone have a good idea, it tend to be repeated in several times... and the Permian synapsids had moe interesting innovations ;)
(Oh, and a sabertooth mammal live along Langstonia: the thylacosmilid Anachlysictis)

Another often-seen idea is a giant, fully aquatic, fast-moving, intelligent predator that attacks from below....

En las viejas clasificaciones los sinápsidos eran lo que se conocía como "reptiles mamiferoides", como Dimetrodon, pero en la clasificación actual de los vertebrados los sinápsidos son un grupo aparte que incluye a los mamíferos y a sus ancestros directos (de nuevo, Dimetrodon y compañìa). Los verdaderos reptiles más las aves, que son dinosaurios, se incluyen en el grupo de los saurópsidos.

Muchas gracias por el cumplido, saludos :)

Beautiful work here! To be honest, I was unaware there were still largely-terrestrial crocodilians up until this recently... I learned something new!

Thank you for your comment, if you learn something new then I know that I made my job :)

In fact, terrestrial crocodiles were present in different times. Although the sebecids (the family of Langstonia and the giant Barinasuchus) were extinct in the middle Miocene, in Australia exists large terrestrial crocodiles like Quinkana, in the Ice Ages. Unfortunately even these animals and their relatives in the Pacific islands are extinct now.

Oh, and thanks for the favorite too!

if I had a time machine, early triassic would be an interesting age to go, among the very distant past (Burgess shale and contemporary, plus the following eras, it would be so cool to see it all happen before your own eyes and follow the organisms on their way towards present time... =)

Zimices Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Hobbyist
Well, any past for me is interesting, and Triassic have the interest of being the age of the early radiations of archosaurs. With a time machine I will see animals like Tanystropheus, Longisquama, Cynognathus, etc. to understand their biology and implications for the biology. Anyway, like Pedro Calderón de la Barca says, "dreams are only dreams" ;)

Curiosamente me llevó menos tiempo realizar esta imagen que las de los fósiles que he hecho, pero las imágenes "en vivo" dependen de poder tener referencias anatómicas... por ahí tengo algunas en mente y cuando las concrete las pondré en su debido momento.

Muchas gracias, me alegra que la idea de la escena hay gustado, sobre todo porque es el debut de estos animales (menos Langstonia) en Deviantart...
Creo que el nombre que se usa ahora para la familia es sebécidos, y sebecosuquios sería el grupo mayor, pero bueno, no sabía que te interesaban estos animales. A mi me llama la atención que en Venezuela hayan encontrado una especie aun más grande, Barinasuchus, de 7 metros de largo, debio de ser pasmoso encontrárselo. :)

Bueno, supongo que es porque los materiales son en general poco divulgados, aunque gracias a Internet esto ha ido cambiando un poco... por decir algo, me encantaría ver reconstrucciones del esparasodonte Proborhyaena, he leído que aparentemente era mucho más grande que Thylacosmilus y Thylacoleo...
Y gracias por tu comentario!!
