What about Pyroraptor? Didn't it live here, too?

Please read the description again.

Hi Hyrotrioskjan,

Is your picture copy-righted? May I use it in my teaching or writing?

How about Tarascosaurus? How big would he be? 
AlexanderChiltonWebb's avatar
BTW Tarascosaurus was (supposedly, from what I should tell) a type of abelisaur. He was on Dinosaur Planet (2003) on the episode Pod's Travels, where he coexisted with Pyroraptor, Rhabdodon, Ampelosaurus (on the old island, which I could very well be wrong about; it might've been Magyarosaurus on both), Magyarosaurus (of course)), Elopteryx, and the crocodilian Allodaposuchus.

The hatzegopteryx neck is a bit shorter but still very nice.

This Hatzy was done long before Witton and other realized that, here some more recent sketches: www.deviantart.com/art/Short-n…

Hatzegopteryx is the king of this island!

I'm hoping they find an apex preditor on that island doesn't seem like just hatsegopteryx could keep the population in check all on his own you'd think he wouldn't be a permanent resident

That's why many island faunas are called 'unbalanced'. They lack some elements of the faunas found on mainland, simply because they never made it onto the islands. Island faunas don't necessarily have an apex predator: just dwarf herbivores that reproduce slowly.
Dinodc98's avatar
Its odd to think of the preditor prey relationship not as a rule.
Eurwentala's avatar
Yeah. :) There are no natural laws in biology. Everything has exceptions, and many of them are on islands. Island faunas are really, really weird.

Speaking of which...what's the weirdest case of island evolution? Not just flightless or giant/dwarf-bizarre, but incredibly bizarre (say unusual breeding cycles)

BTW, there are many cases of unlikely apex predators evolving in islands (terror skink, Haast's eagle, Galapagos giant centipede, Cuban giant owl, etc)
