Blancotherium
Time for another proboscidean portrait! Here is Blancotherium buckneri, a gomphothere that lived in the late Miocene (10 million years ago) in North America. During years it was considered as a species of Gnathabelodon, but an analysis published this year indicates that was a separate genus. For me is interesting that although it have a very long mandible, the lower tusks are reduced and the upper tusks are gently curved upwards, like in Notiomastodon or Sinomastodon; is it closely related to them?

Hope you like it. :)

Lycopsis longirostrus
El esparasodonto depredador Lycopsis longirostrus, un pariente algo mayor de Lycopsis torresi de Argentina. esta especie vivió hace unos 12 millones de años en la zona de La Venta en Colombia, en el período Mioceno. Era un animal menudo con hocico alargado, con cierta capacidad de trepar a los árboles como las actuales martas y manturones.

Actualización (18/03/2019): Hacía tiempo quería darle una revisión al esqueleto, lo cual implicó como se imaginarán trabajar desde el principio con las ilustraciones publicadas del animal; por fortuna, este es precisamente uno de los esparasodontes más completos conocidos por fuera de Argentina. He querido darle una pose más neutral, con base en las reconstrucciones de parientes suyos como Prothylacynus y Cladosictis. Llama la atención lo largo del cráneo, el cuello algo más corto y patas más alargadas que en otros parientes suyos y que la cola parece no ser demasiado larga como en Cladosictis, aunque en su mayor parte es especulación. Espero sea de su agrado. :)

English: The sparassodont predator Lycopsis longirostrus, a somewhat larger relative of Lycopsis torresi from Argentina. This species lived about 12 million years in the area of ​​La Venta in Colombia in the Miocene period. It was an slender animal with an elongated snout, with some ability to climb trees like the current martens and binturongs.

Update (18/03/2019): Since a long time I've want to make a new version of the skeleton, which implied, as you can imagine, work from zero with the published illustrations of this animal; fortunately, this is precissely one of the most complete sparassodonts known outside Argentina. I wanted to give it a more neutral posture, based in the reconstructions of its relatives as Prothylacynus and Cladosictis. Is remarkable the relative length of the skull, the shorter neck and the longer limbs in comparison with its relatives and that the tail it seems to be no too long like in Cladosictis, althought this latter is basically speculative. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Miocene big noses
A couple of unfinished (well, almost abandoned) drawings of two Miocene herbivores with big noses: the macrauchenid Huayqueriana (top) and the paleorchestid Propalorchestes (below). I wanted to explore the "no-trunk" look for these animals, but I'm not convinced about how they ending. Anyways, the papers about them are very interesting!
