“Dances With Crocs”


If Steve Irwin were alive, and wanted to be in a movie with Kevin Costner … No! I will not shut up! It would be a glorious movie! And that’s what it would be called.

This isn’t really a post. I need filler before finishing a big hadrosaur post on recent work detailing how they “chewed,” so here we have some crurotarsan goodies. (Most of it’s repeats.) Seek ye, below the fold:
The dynamics of living animals never cease to amaze me. If this animal were alive, it wouldn't cease to amaze me MORE.

“Sphenosuchians” are a pretty awesome bunch, one which I hope to work with in the future. Especially on the behaviors I have drawn them in on this page. Way back here, I called them “fox crocs,” as “dog crocs” as being taken for araripesuchids.

Some croc wandering around without it's skin, the poor fella.

    Those are gorgeous illustrations Jaime.
    Fascinating animals too.

    • Thank you. I tried to make them as dynamic as i could, for the sake of just making an unusual set of hyper-dynamic crocodilians. It seems to work! (Now the questing is to determine IF they can do these things…)
