Los Thylacosmilidae fueron una familia inusual de marsupiales carnívoros (o parientes cercanos de los marsupiales) con dientes de sable de Suramérica, de los cuales Thylacosmilus es su más famoso representante. Sin embargo, existen otros representantes, como Anachlysisctis y Patagosmilus, aparte de otros restos indeterminados. Entonces, aquí está su primer "retrato familiar" hecho.;)

I recently read about them in Mauricio Antón's great book "Sabertooth" - before that I didn't know there were any relatives of good ol' Thylacosmilus!

I guess you already know that, but there's another illustration of Patagosmilus (which want to take down a Peltephilus), made by Velizar Simeonovski.

Great artwork, by the way! ;) It was among my "Favourites", but somehow I totally forgot this one. Silly me! :D
