Are you planing to do more like this for other parts of the world and different time periods?

Good art but Macrauchenia isn't a camel.

I belive the sebecosuichian is a Langstonia huilensis, no?

Sebecosuchia must be a very recent or very discovery because there's no wikipedia article on him yet. But still, with legs like a predatory savanna cat, it's got to be the coolest looking crocodilomorph I've ever seen in my life. It's like a perfect cross between a croc and a jaguar. :D

Wow these are great! They remind me of this future evolution project I have floating around my head, I wish I could draw them like these so much!

Muchas gracias.....hise cada dibujo por separado y luego los uni a escala en el Photoshop.... un trabajo largo, pero no tan complicado.

South America was a fascinating continent back in the day. Not that it still isn't, but it's different now.
