Shansitherium by Leogon
Shansitherium ("Beast of Shanxi") is an extinct genus of superficially moose- or antelope-like giraffe from the late Miocene epoch of Shanxi Province, China. It was closely related to the genus Samotherium.

This reconstruction is done based on several skeleton images,in PS CS6 and Artrage4.I hope you like it.:-)
Samotherium boissieri by Leogon
Samotherium boissieri
Samotherium is an extinct genus of giraffe from the Miocene and Pliocene of Eurasia and Africa. Samotherium had two ossicones on its head, and long legs. The ossicones usually pointed upward, and were curved backwards, with males having larger, more curved ossicones, though, in the Chinese species, S. sinense, the straight ossicones point laterally, not upwards. The genus is closely related to Shansitherium.(…).Some authors believe that it grazed on the low-lying grass of late Miocene Africa and Eurasia rather than nibbling the high leaves of trees.they stood up to 2-2.5m at the shoulders,so they were tall enough to consume short tree leaves...
I made this Samotherium in Artrage4 and PS CS6 and it took me about three days of partial work.I hope you like it...:-)
Mastodon by Leogon
 A bull American mastodon (Mammut americanum),wandering around the coniferous forests of North america,during the late Pleistocene.
M. americanum, the American mastodon, is the youngest and best-known species of the genus. They disappeared from North America as part of a mass extinction of most of the Pleistocene megafauna, widely presumed to have been related to overexploitation by Clovis hunters, and possibly also to climate change.
The average body size of the species M. americanum was around 2.3 m in height at the shoulders, corresponding to a large female or a small male, but large males could grow up to 2.8 m in height and weigh as much as 4.5 tonnes.(
I made this mastodon by Artrage and PS CS6,and Wacoim pen&tab.
Hope you enjoy it and don't forget to help me improve my work by your critiques and comments...:-)
Bison latifrons:The last man standing... by Leogon
Bison latifrons:The last man standing...
The time was dawn of Holocene,when the last broad horned bison roamed the frozen plains of North America.Undoubtedly, B. latifrons  was on of the largest bovids that ever lived on the planet.they could reach 2.5m at the shoulder and weigh up to 2 tons.Yet the most spectacular of all would be their horns which measured as great as 200 centimeters from tip to tip.However any of this could not save them from Quaternary extinction event)...
I created this one by PS cs6 and Artrage4 and used some photos to make it's habitat.Hope you like it...:-)
Megantereon by Leogon
A Megantereon ventures to pass a newly frozen river in cold winter.Who knows...may be like modern tigers and jaguars they were quite familiar with water life!It is possible that megantereon species living in northern regions had a fur color similar to that of snow leopard or Persian leopards to better camouflage in frozen forests.
Anyway,I reconstructed the Megantereon in PS CS6 and Artrage4 and then used a photo by one of my friends to make a habitat for him.Hope you like this kitty...:-) 
Today,I celebrate my 400th watcher!! not a bad "friends list" in less than 2 years...I really feel honored to be beside you,a member of Great DA!:D
