Description

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work on a new book called Monster Sharks: Megalodon and Other Giant Prehistoric Predators of the Deep and got to paint a bunch of fun prehistoric sea critters. 

Next up is Livyatan, the awesome raptorial sperm whale and potential rival of Megalodon. Those teeth are enormous, like the size of energy drink cans. I feel like predatory whales are an under represented creature design inspiration. Every one always thinks of whales as peaceful giants, but man they have some of the biggest teeth, they have like straight up monster teeth.

Although it may seem gruesome, I'm convinced that this whale would feed on people. However, no one is certain how an ancient sperm-whale-like animal would respond to a scuba diver.
