Tetanurae matriarch by Tapwing Tetanurae matriarch by Tapwing

3-6
To confirm foreign development the team located and recalled one of our active Matriarchs to compare how the ‘caged’ and ‘wild’ specimens develop.
 
The cage Matriarch grew only slightly and remained physically unchanged. The wild specimen however, grew substantially and adapted common traits of theropoda. Losing it’s wings and developing denser structure along with a more muscular build that serve it in grappling or climbing. 
Some unknown growths spark concern, but nothing outside of the current margin of error.

Further observation required.

drawn in Procrate
inspired by ‘the isle’

Hey Tap, i see your now a Dev! I'm wondering if you can talk to dondi about having it where if you tap on the dino you want to eat and see it's current bleed, health, run speed, attack damage, ect. Really will appreciate it if you could!

So this, and the other two Matriarchs are the result of the Triatominae Matriarch feeding on certain species. This is the result of Raptors, Carnos, and possibly Ceratos. While the Tyrannosauridea is the result of large carnivores like Rex, Giga, and maybe Spino. While the Pterosauros is the result of feeding on Pterosaurs, and possibly Raptors given it's appearance.... intruiging possibilities of hybridization indeed.

Sort of? There’s more to it than that but that’s getting into some head canon lore I have yet to get down on paper.

quick question, are the 'growths' you mentioned the osteoderms on its neck and back-side? or are they something else?

Nice design. Procreate is awesome right, I got my i pad pro and pencil very recently, it's fantastic. Anyways when I first saw this I though 'Shadow raptor' like my old creature design. Great deadly and very menacing design.

‘Some unknown growths spark concern’

What kind of growths?

I like how it have all the mouths of it's evolution!
It's like it have layers, the slowly changing visual is very well constructed!
Oh, i really like it!
You took the Matriarch idea an made it to another level, really great job!
Keep the good work!

DOES this mean that they will cage this one and look for another one and it’ll look different or something due to evolving and also look at one of his previous art which showed this...

(Specifically look at the third one.)

Just to clear things up: is this the same specimen of the matriarch we've seen in the other two illustrations and it's evolving, or are they just uniquely mutated individuals?

The Matriarch is back with her(?) nice skin textures, and fantastic manicure and pedicure. Colors on the tail is very nice too; must be some sort of thermoregulation? Could double as an aquatic propeller? (Make up for losing wings.) Could triple as some anti-predator signaling? The list of theories goes on. The same goes for there being more than one matriarch. Cloning? Surely these things cannot be reproduced so easily? The plot thickens.

So vicious too. Seems like it has an affinity to bully the bulls (C-Taurus). That carno is completely confused; probably the most traumatic bull riding it will ever experienced. If it's still alive. The plot thickens.

Heheh well you’re on the right track with some of these theories, thermoregulation’s a neat idea, and the aquatic tail’s a bit of a glimps into the future. 

When you’re trying to develop something, you’ll need more than 1 test subject.

That's an allo, the old allo model, not the carno, the carno has a short bulldog-like face and horns that go to the side

also, if it was a carno, its arms are waaay too big

it seems like a pterosaur grew tired of getting called "a dinosaur" so it broke free and went "bitch I'll show you fucking dinosaur"

looks a bit like a Utahraptor, despite it burrowed blood from an allo, amazing work though gives me goosebumps :)

Yeaaah that sort of slipped by me ^^” I actually forgot I used the allo in the first stage.   
she’s gotten most of her DNA from other animals during her 2nd stage (particularly utah, austro and potentially the magna-raptor).
