Angistorhinus grandis, a phytosaur from the Early Carnian of Wyoming. Phytosaur taxonomy is somewhat a mess and it is unclear how many species of Angistorhinus there is or even if Angistorhinus is a valid genus or a junior synonym of Rutiodon. A. megalodon (usually referred to Brachysuchus megalodon) and A. alticephalus have been described from the Carnian of Texas while another unamed species has been discovered in Morocco.

LOL He looks like he's been disturbed from his sleep

You achieved great result! With the focus on the phytosaur's head and blurred staffage (the nearest animal's back or tail) and background this artwork looks absolutely like a photo of a living creature or perhaps a freeze frame of a movie! When I look at the picture I even hear the cicadas and the water bubbling...

The beauty of convergent evolution ...

fantastic... the smudged body of the other phytosaur (the one placed in front of the image) gives a lot of realism to the scene.
