American lion vs Smilodon populator by Leogon
American lion vs Smilodon populator
Well,well well...
It's the beginning of a clash,still no bloodshed,but "There will be blood"!the too giants were both extremely territorial,both the same size and both fierce enough to win this battle.What's your idea about the winner of this war?:-)
The majestic Panthera atrox or the mighty Smilodon populator?

Arsinoitherium zitteli by Leogon
Arsinoitherium zitteli
An Arsinoitherium Drinking water from river.
Arsinoitherium fossils were first found in the Faiyum area of Egypt,‭ ‬and to date these fossils are the best preserved with some specimens being almost complete.‭ Arsinoitheres were elephant-like herbivores that lived during the late Eocene and the early Oligocene of northern Africa from 36 to 30 million years ago.‬Arsinoitherium now seems to have been spread further across Africa as well as parts of the Middle East,‭ ‬while fossil material from Europe and Asia has revealed that the possible ancestors to the Arsinoitherium genus may have come from other areas.
Although it is tempting to state that Arsinoitherium was rhinoceros-like,‭ ‬the legs and hips have both been noted to actually be more elephant-like.Adults of the species A. zitteli stood around 1.75 m (5 ft 9 in) tall at the shoulders and 3 m (9 ft 10 in) in length.

Platybelodon grangeri by Leogon
Platybelodon grangeri
Platybelodon ("flat-spear tusk") was a genus of large herbivorous mammal related to the elephant (order Proboscidea). It lived during the Miocene Epoch, about 15-4 million years ago, and ranged over Africa, Europe, Asia and North America. Although it thrived during its time, it did not survive past the Miocene.
Platybelodon was very similar to Amebelodon(coming soon...), another, closely related gomphothere genus. Due to the shape of the two lower teeth, which are worn by many gomphothere genera (such as Platybelodon, Archaeobelodon, and Amebelodon), they are popularly known as "shovel tuskers."(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platybel…)

Palaeoloxodon naumanni by Leogon
Palaeoloxodon naumanni
Palaeoloxodon naumanni is an extinct species belonging to the genus Palaeoloxodon that lived in Southern Japan in the late Pleistocene about 500,000 to 15,000 years ago. It is named after Heinrich Edmund Naumann who discovered the first fossils at Yokosuka, Kanagawa, Japan.
Palaeoloxodon naumanni is closely related to the modern Asian Elephant, Elephas maximus. Similar to mammoths P. naumanni had a subcutaneous fat layer and long fur[1] as an adaption to a cold environment. The species had a pair of long twisted tusks and a bulge on the head.These tusks grew more than 2.4 m in length, 20 cm in diameter. It was a little smaller than Asian elephants averaging 2.5 metres (8.2 ft) to 3 metres (9.8 ft).(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palaeolo…)
I hope you like this Samurai!:D

Llallawavis scagliai by Leogon
Llallawavis scagliai
A couple of terror birds,Llallwavis scagliai found the carcass of a dead Pliocene Caviomorph rodent on a river bank.
Llallawavis scagliai (Magnificent Bird of Scaglia) is a large extinct predator bird, the most complete fossil of a Phorusrhacid "terror bird" yet found. The fossil, discovered in 2010 in sediment among the cliffs above La Estafeta beach, contains the complete palate, complete trachea,skull, voice box, and eye bones.[1] The new species was around four feet tall and lived in Argentina approximately 3.5 million years ago during the Pliocene Epoch. L. scagliai likely roamed in grassland and weighed around 1.2m tall and weigh 20kg. The joints separating the skulls bones were fused, unlike modern birds, and that may have helped it smash prey.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llallawa…)

As a rule of sexual dimorphism I painted the male bird with more brilliant saturated colors.I hope you like this birdies.:-)
