Omg, what a terrible pun.

A female Pliosaurus funkei, formerly known by the awful nickname Predator X, starts the process of giving birth to a little devil.

I thought she was eyeless for a sec. They seem too small for a visual predator with binocular vision.

And OMG this thing is so FLOODED with punsrofl

I read in Nat Geo. Magazines; this types of Species have a 'Parental instinct' at least a social behavior; what do you think about it?

Nice pic, unfortunately it does not show how absurdly large the flippers of P. funkei were.

Personally, I think the nickname was so much better than that name. Scientific names ruin ancient reptiles and dinosaurs in my opinion. Saurophaganax is cursed.... :(

More to the point, this is awesome! :D

That theropod should have been named Ultimatovenator (ultimate hunter) IMO.

Or Securivenator ultimator (Ultimate Battleax Hunter)

Pliosaurus macromerus is also a massive animal, known from the "Cumnor Monster" specimen from the Kimmeridge Clay

Finally, the sensation dissipates and the true animal is able to reveal itself. Pliosaurus funkei, estimated at a comfortable 30-40 feet long. Welcome to the 21st century, ex-Predator X!

Aww, I'd actually expect the little one to be quite cute, you know, just because. what did you base your painting on btw? I don't know why but it looks slightly more Kronosaurus-like than Pliosaurus-like in some proportions, but maybe it's just me or the perspective. Great job anyway :)

:iconjulio-lacerda:
Julio-Lacerda Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Indeed, I based it heavily on Kronosaurus since there are many reliable skeletal reconstructions for it, and very few for Pliosaurus (nevermind P. funkei)

:iconmarcoornithodira:
marcoornithodira Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I've seen a reconstruction including preserved remains of P. funkei, with the rest of it probably based on other Pliosaurus or Liopleurodon skeleons... good amount of detail in the preserved bits, apart from that it was a bit sketchy though (not unbearably so however).

I based the main proportions on Kronosaurus, so I guess the head could've been quite bigger. :P
