Harpagornis
Harpagornis, el águila de Haast, fue una gran rapaz que vivió en Nueva Zelanda hasta hace 500 años- tan reciente que los maoríes todavía contaban historias sobre ella en tiempos recientes, describiéndola como un predador peligroso muy capaz de cazar y devorar seres humanos. No debería sorprender, por cuanto ésta ave se alimentaba comunmente de moas, aves no voladoras de tamaño comparable e incluso superior al del hombre.
Harpagornis tenía un pico enorme y poderoso, garras más grandes que las de un oso grizzly, y podía dejarse caer sobre su presa a 80 kilometros por hora, con las garras por delante, golpéandola como una tonelada de concreto. Los orificios dejados por éstos impactos han sido hallados en los esqueletos de los moa. Era tan pesada como un Velociraptor, y tenía una envergadura de alas de tres metros, es decir, comparable al cóndor de los Andes, pero solo porque sus alas eran proporcionalmente cortas y redondeadas, como en las rapaces que cazan en hábitats cerrados; ésto la volvía muy maniobrable, a pesar de su tamaño. 
Doodle a color porque, práctica. 

Harpagornis, the Haast's eagle, was a great raptor that lived in New Zealand until about 500 years ago- so recently that the maori people still told stories about it in recent times, describing it as a dangerous predator very capable of hunting and eating people. Not surprising, as this eagle fed mainly on moa, giant flightless birds often as big or bigger than a human. 
Harpagornis had a huge powerful beak, claws larger than a grizzly bear's, and could strike at 80 km p/h, hitting its victim talons first like a ton of bricks; puncture wounds of its talons have been found on the skeletons of moa. It was as heavy as a Velociraptor and had a wingspan estimated at three meters, that is, comparable to today's Andean condor, although only because its wings were short and rounded, as is usual in forest-dwelling raptors; this made it extremely maneuverable despite its large size. 
Color doodle cuz, practice.

Beware the Cat
Aunque a salvo de tiburones y mini-cachalotes asesinos, Nanodobenus todavía tiene que cuidarse las espaldas en la playa, donde un Pratifelis hambriento acecha en busca de cualquier personaje comestible. 
Nanodobenus fue una morsa prehistorica cuyos restos han sido hallados en Baja California, México. Era muy pequeña comparada con las morsas modernas; con tan solo 1.65 m de longitud, era de hecho el miembro mas pequeño de la familia Odobenidae. 
Pratifelis por su parte fue un félido que vivió en Norteamérica durante el Mioceno. Su aspecto debió ser similar al de un gran ocelote, pero aparentemente llegaba a ser mayor que el puma moderno. Parece haber estado muy extendido, lo que me hace preguntarme si tendrá relación con el género Leopardus, que incluye a los félidos americanos como el ocelote y el margay. 

Although safe from sharks and killer mini sperm whales, Nanodobenus still has to watch out when on land, where a hungry Pratifelis seeks its edible neighbors. 
Nanodobenus was a prehistoric walrus whose remains have been found in Baja California, Mexico. It was very small compared to its living relative- in fact, at an estimated 1.65 m long, it was the smallest member of the walrus family known thus far. It 
Pratifelis on the other hand was a cat that lived in North America during the Miocene. Its appearance must have been similar to that of a great ocelot, but apparently grew even bigger than modern pumas. It seems to have been very widespread, which makes me wonder if it may have been an ancestor to genus Leopardus, which includes small spotted New World cats today such as ocelots and margay.

Savage Steppebear
Sorprendido mientras acechaba a una manada de ciervos gigantes, ni siquiera un cazador Neanderthal no es rival para un oso de las estepas. 
Ursus arctos priscus fue una subespecie de oso pardo que vivió en lo que hoy es Europa (incluyendo Gran Bretaña donde por algún tiempo parece haber sido el depredador dominante), y que alcanzaba tamaño colosal, siendo tan grande como los osos Kodiak modernos e incluso, quizá, más grande que el oso cavernario promedio. Tambien parece haber sido muy carnívoro, quizá ocupando un nicho ecológico similar al del Arctodus en Norteamérica. Considerando que los osos pardos modernos se cuentan entre los animales salvajes más peligrosos de nuestros días, cabe imaginar que los encuentros cercanos con humanos prehistoricos no terminarán bien en la mayoría de los casos... 

Surprised while stalking a herd of giant elk, not even a Neanderthal hunter is a match for a steppe bear. 
Ursus arctos priscus was a subspecies of brown bear that lived in Europe (including the UK where it appears to have been the top predator for a while), and which reached huge size, being comparable to Kodiak bears and possibly bigger than your average cave bear. It also seems to have been very carnivorous, probably filling a niche equivalent to that of Arctodus simus in North America. Considering how brown bears rank among the most dangerous wild animals today, it is to be expected that close encounters between them and early humans ended badly in most cases...
Thanks to :iconanonymousllama428: for letting me know about this fantastic and obscure beast.

Hey, heard of the Zanzibar leopard being rediscovered? It's somewhat old news, but it's still amazing in my opinion

I did hear about it but honestly I dont know what to think... it comes from an Animal Planet show (of merfolk and living megalodon fame). Also, even if it was genuine, there's rumors that leopards from the mainland were introduced to Zanzibar after the local subspecies' extinction, meaning it could also be one of those... 

I dunno. It would be awesome if true, tho.

well the Megalodon was Discovery Channel, not Animal Planet. I do get your point-but looking at the camera footage the leopard doesn’t really look like an African leopard.
