Misc. Spec Evo: Five Deaths Fauna
For :icontaliesaurus:’ contest thing.
Name: Nublar armadillo (Megadasypus nublarensis)
Description: A fairly large armadillo most closely resembling the seven-banded armadillo of mainland South America, this armored omnivore has done surprisingly well with the presence of Ingen’s prehistoric menagerie. Unlike their generally small and inoffensive cousins, these are quite big, stocky animals, averaging up to a meter and a half long, with the largest collected specimen weighing in at over 54 lbs. They're built rather like badgers, with a robust body and head and large stocky front limbs equipped with large claws suited for burrowing, and their teeth are quite a bit larger and sharper than the average armadillo, almost like tiny shark teeth; said dentition is put to use shredding up tubers and fungi, cracking birds’ eggs, and tearing apart lizards, birds, small mammals, and in recent years, baby dinosaurs. Coloration is generally similar to a typical

HWE Secret Santa Year 2 - Return to the Postocene!
20 million years have passed since the strange upright apes known as 'humans' have gone extinct; they managed to take with them countless species of animals, great and small, but as it always does after a mass extinction, life found a way and continued on. New groups have emerged from the shadows to claim the nearly-emptied world, developing into forms both great and terrible... and from the looks of it, they're not going anywhere anytime soon.
Geographically speaking, not too much has changed on earth, but there has been significant tectonic activity. South America separated from its northern brother once again, making the isthmus of Panama into a peninsula; history continues to repeat itself farther north, as a land bridge has formed again between what were once Russia and Alaska have collided again, connecting the two continents. Europe and Africa, too, have reconnected at what was once the Strait of Gibraltar and the former Middle East, turning the Mediterranean into the world's la

World of Magic Contest - Dragons
Pelagodracids:

Manta drake (Mantadraco magnificens)
Found all along the western coastlines of the Americas from Chile all the way up to the Sea of Cortez, these large dragons can measure up to 23 feet in length and weigh nearly eight tons, and earn their name from their general appearance as well as their lifestyle. Their bodies are sleek and streamlined and are colored a silvery-blue that is darker above then on its underside, with tiny web-footed stumps for hind legs, a fairly short, powerful laterally flattened tail, and massive wide wings stretching to over 35 feet across; this, combined with their sleek arrowhead-shaped skulls, gives the manta drake a silhouette shaped almost like a B-52 bomber when viewed from above. Much like manta rays, they are eaters of plankton and other tiny marine organisms, ‘flying’ through the water just as gracefully as their relatives do through the air (While not capable of powered flight, they can leap above the water and g

TMHOTW Contest - Impartial Island
Mammals and Synapsids:

Selamodir
Selamodir gigantis (Gigantic seal-mother)
One of the largest of Palkragar's marine therapsids is the selamodir, Impartial Island's equivalent to the closely-related katthveli, but even larger. Measuring over 28 feet long and weighing in at over 5 tons, its body plan is considerably more elongated and more heavily built than the katthveli, with a proportionally longer, thicker tail and more powerful front limbs. The head is also much more robust, more similar to the short-faced bear in shape then the katthveli's cat-like skull. Colored a dark silvery-grey, the females are considerably more heavily built than the males are, developing crimson streaks down its neck and chest during the breeding season (Which occurs in late fall, a remnant of living on the surface in an environment with changing seasons) to advertise sexual maturity.
Selamodir are voracious predators that spend most of their time in the sea when not resting on Impartial

TMHOTW Contest - Tsuni Prairie
Mammals:
Bearhog
Flagellacauda major (Greater whip tail)
One of the many lineages of mammals that survived extinction on the surface by hiding within world hearts were the oreodonts, a lineage of primitive ungulates related to camels that lived across North America throughout the Oligocene and occupied a wide range of niches; in the hearts, they have continued this diversity, taking up a large number of ecological roles. In several areas largely devoid of competition, they have even seized megafaunal roles, with one of the largest of these being the bearhog of the Tsuni Prairie.
This huge ungulate is without a doubt the largest oreodont to ever live, growing about 25% larger than an adult male American bison and weighing considerably more than one as well. The front feet bear large, curved claws, the back is sloped like a hyena or a bison, and the large, robust skull sports small ears and a pair of large fang-like incisors on the upper jaw that poke out from the lips

TMHOTW Contest - Icowya Bay and Hallow Island
Mammals & Synapsids:

Rhinopotamus
Alcetherium maximus (Greatest moose beast)
Despite its name, this huge creature is not related to deer at all - it is actually a brontothere, one of the last ones alive. Some smaller forms and a couple of larger species managed to get into Therobis during the Eocene and did fairly well for themselves, but like most of the dinosaurs of that heart, their populations were decimated by the arrival of grass. By the time that a breach opened between Palkragar and Therobis, the brontotheres were just barely hanging on by a couple of species, but Palkragar and its softer vegetation provided a haven for them, allowing them to diversify once again. Nowadays, a fair number of brontotheres exist in Palkragar, and Alcetherium, the rhinopotamus, is one of the largest out of them all. Growing to over nine feet tall at the shoulder and weighing in at roughly 13,000 lbs, this immense dark brown creature is much more massively built than i

HWE Secret Summer Santa - Explodingpotatofilms
For millennia, It had slumbered.
It had no name to speak of; not one that could be heard by mortal ears. Besides, It had no need for one - no one had ever seen It, and no one ever would.
And so, It slumbered alone, just as unware of the world around It as the world was of It. And as It slept, It dreamed.
It dreamed of the cold empty blackness of space; a never-ending expanse of inky void that all things originated from and all things would eventually return.
It dreamed of a tiny sphere in this great emptiness; a precious little thing of blue and green warmed by a golden sun. It was a fleeting thing, utterly insignificant in the grand scheme of things, but for some reason, Its dreams focused on the sphere.
It dreamed of life inhabiting the sphere; tiny specks compared to itself, but life nonetheless, coming in all shapes and sizes.
It dreamed of extinctions, testing the specks of the sphere and tempering it like steel in a forge; the mighty died in droves, but the small and meek

Monster Island Expanded - Skull Island Fauna pt. 2
Crawler Lizard: A former inhabitant of Skull Island’s nightmarish canyons, the crawler lizard is a strange, specialized lizard approximately the size of a Nile crocodile, with a long serpentine body with a jagged ridge of iguana-like spikes running down the spine, a robust head with powerful tooth-filled jaws, and two strong, stout front limbs that it uses to drag its snake-like body about. Unable to compete with the giant spiders and tentacle bugs that it shared its environment with, crawler lizards were generally scavengers back home on Skull Island, feeding on the leftovers that the arthropods left behind. On Monster Island, however, these chasm-dwellers have relocated to the jungle floor, where they have made a new living for themselves as ambush predators, lurking in the leaf litter to spring out at passing deer and buffalo and set upon them with its slashing talons and crushing jaws.

Xenocene - Dillodiles
Dillodiles
Family: Pseudoankylosuchidae (False fused crocodiles)
At the end of the Holocene, the rampant industrial activities of human industry caused large portions of the polar ice caps to melt, raising the global sea level for thousands of years and flooding huge sections of formerly dry flatlands, among them being large portions of the Amazon river basin. Many formerly terrestrial animals were forced to adapt to an aquatic existence with this new environmental change, and several descendants of those aquatic creatures live on today in the Xenocene, with the most successful among them being the dillodiles.
As the name implies, dillodiles are descended from the nine-banded armadillos of the Xenocene, armored generalists that were known for their surprising skill at swimming. When sea levels rose, the armadillos took to the water with ease, with fossil forms including burly shellfish-eaters, immense manatee-like herbivores, and even a strange nearly blind long-snouted form tha

Monster Island Expanded - Skull Island Fauna pt. 1
When Skull Island sank beneath the waves, hundreds of species of prehistoric beasts were left without a home. Many managed to swim to nearby islands, where they were promptly found and brought to Monster Island. Strangely enough, many of the island’s animals resemble outdated tail-dragging restorations of dinosaurs; how and why they evolved to look this way remains a mystery.
Of course, Skull Island is perhaps the most famous for being home to several different kaiju, including one of the very, very few beings to have gone toe to toe against Godzilla and come out victorious.

Megaprimatus kong: Many consider 1956 to be the beginning of the ‘Age of Monsters,’ when the first Godzilla made his appearance in Tokyo that shocked the world, but only slightly less memorable is the story of King Kong; a gargantuan ape worshipped as a god by the people of the tiny island that he called home, captured by a thrill-seeking film-maker and presented to

Xenocene - Zhilis of Guinea
Out of the various crocodile lineages that have arisen in the Xenocene, few are quite as widespread or as diverse as the zhilis. Arising in southern Asia, they’ve adapted to a decent number of niches in their homeland, but it is along the Guinea Land Bridge that they truly thrive; having been relatively early arrivals to the area, the zhili were able to seize quite the diverse array of roles as they migrated south, with some eventually reaching Australia and giving rise to the massive predators known as the kasai and the burrunjor. In fact, it could be argued that the explosion of diversity among the zhilis is one of the major reasons why Australia’s marsupials haven’t done well migrating northwards – they simply can’t get much of a foothold in the face of the competition that the crocodilians provide.

Crikey!
I went out of town for a couple days, and when I returned, my doodle of Steve Irwin with the baby spinosaur has become the most favorited and commented in my entire gallery!! D: I seriously wasn´t expecting that! 

I think this speaks volumes of how beloved this guy was. I really hope people remember his message as well as his unique personality and fearless antics. These are hard times for the world's wildlife, but we can all help. Sometimes it only takes something as simple as taking that bug out of your house and safely into the garden, rather than stepping on it, to make a difference. Steve respected and loved every living creature, no matter how small, "ugly", or dangerous. It gives me hope that so many people remember him, because then we can all continue his labor whatever way we can. 
Thanks a lot for your kind comments, everyone! :)
