There is a lump in the right front leg, which looks like a tumor.

Awesome artwork! Many new ceratopsians have been uncovered these last years! :) This artwork is easily one of my favourites!

Is the crocodylian in the background supposed to be Deinosuchus?
tuomaskoivurinne's avatar
No, it's not. Mercuriceratops is known from two specimens, found from Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. The crocodylian remains the paleontologists have found there include Albertochampsa, Leidyosuchus (which I had in mind), one undescribed specimen and Brachychampsa.

So Deinosuchus lived further south in places such as New Jersey, Colorado, and New Mexico?

Deinosuchus remains have been found over in 10 US states, as south as Northern Mexico and as north as Montana. Theoretically it might have inhabited the same area as Mercuriceratops (and it lived around the same time), but I wanted to depict another animal.

OK, thanks for telling me so.

I think this is one of my favourite pieces that you have produced!  Everything is great, but especially the subtle but still vibrant colours on the Mercuriceratops.  Well done!

Nice, Glad to see that Horns is still going.

Of course, when ever they find new ceratopsids.

I like the Red/Pink Spots decorating it.
