Albino Llama: Llamas are awesome! (52)
  Ursus “maritimus tyrannus” Described and named in Kurten (1964), it consist of a lone ulna found near Kew Bridge, London, catalogued as BM 24361. The ulna is missing the distal epiphysis which Kurten (1964) interpreted as a sign of the specimen being sub-adult, even with said piece missing the ulna is about 440mm long and it was estimated that it would have been 485mm long when complete.  On plate 2 of his paper, Kurten compared BM 24361 with a large sub-adult polar bear (UZI 3) and here I do the same. On the face of it BM 24361 is a giant, 13.3% longer than UZI 3 and the maximum proximal diameter corroborates that measuremen

Ever since reading this post by Cameron McCormick (AKA The LordGeekington (https://www.deviantart.com/lordgeekington)) and subsequently Soibelzon and Schubert (2011) I’ve been interested in the size of bears and I’ve wanted to know how true were the claims. Did bears the size of the average hippo really exist? Did prehistoric bears really dwarf extant species? I will list the fossil taxa that has been claimed in recent years to represent the largest bear known, be it in the literature or on the web, I will look into the claims and if possible, estimate their mass with the same equations used by Soibelzon and Schubert (2011), comparisons with extant taxa will be made and t

What are the skeletal differences between an aurochs and a bison?
Would I be right in saying that adult tyrannosaurids had skulls that were proportionately not much smaller than those of hyaenodontids? Or somewhere in that vicinity? Do you think I'd, then, be similarly correct in presuming they could bite as hard as each other proportionately (considering similar skull size and adaptations for powerful biting)?
A quick question I would like to ask, but how big does Dinocrocuta gigantea get, for the "average" and largest individuals?
Do you happen to know the average size of known P. onca augusta specimens from North America?
profile pretty good but I see to many mexico-related things here.

Hello,

Looking at your work, you seem to be familiar with the brown bears of Pleistocene Europe.
I have a little (or big) query, if you don't mind answering.
