I included a wolf for scale. Poor wolf.

The Short-Faced Bear already had an illustration. It was fairly accurate-- Arctodus simus has these long and relatively thin limbs, and a very thick skull. Unfortunately, our eyes are used to modern bears, and the creature just wasn't credible. This is a strange hazard when depicting creatures related to very familiar animals: "change" the proportions, and it looks weird to us. So, Arctodus got a second picture, one that didn't show off its lean and lanky form the same way.
