Perhaps you remember my first text about the lophoraptoridae. Today they are small or middle sized, but before north and south america get together, the south continet was the home of big and extremly dangerous species. Terrorlophosaurus was not the biggest...but maybe one of the most successfully dragons. It's remains was found all over the landmass in nearly every enviroment. It perfer the dry and warm habitats but can also survive in colder or wet climates

THey look like the kind of thing that could face a contemporary terror bird or a thylacosmilid........but what about the other mammalsl like Arctotherium, Smilodon, Theriodictis, jaguars, pumas, American lions and maned wolves that came from North America. Surely the North American mammal hunters might've had a profound effect on this genus......

Smilodons and jaguars were competitors too, but Terrorlophosaurus played in a other league. Because of their venom and flight-abilities they had nothing to fear except of other dragon species

Ah, so your....dragons don't produce fire? Why venom?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
The legend of fire come from the venom. The wound get blisters and it feels as it would burn your whole body. Someone who saw this, went to another and say "It was as he would burn", 20 times later the dragon spit fire.

Ah, so a dragon functions like a spitting cobra in one way?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Indeed.
They can inject or spit it (Eurovenator up to 7m)

Whoa! That's murder!

A shield is a obligatory tool for a modern dragonologist ;)

Interessantes Bild! Ich finde es immer wieder erstaunlich wie gut du zeichnen kannst. Die Szene wirkt richtig realistisch und man kann sowohl dem Jäger, als auch der Beute nachfühlen. ^^"

Ich hab aus dem Bild auch eine kleine Animation gebastelt, bei der Terrorlophosaurus schwer atmet und dann seine Schnauze in den Kadaver stößt, leider nimmt DA das primitive Windows Movie Maker nicht an...

Klingt richtig cool! Schade dass ich es bei DA nicht sehen kann ^^" ...

He must be big cause that prey is at least as big as a camel!
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
The fossils show enormous venom glands.

Very nice though, pretty cool.
