Anomaly from La Bocana Rojas by PaleoJoe
Anomaly from La Bocana Rojas
L.anomala is here reconstructed as a carcharodontosaurid related closest to Shaochilong.This is the only known carcharodontosaurid from Mexico based on that statement;and if the scaling is correct this would be one of the largest and most robust of its kin,contra almost every other source.Unfortunately,it's placement is tentative presently and awaits more examination.
References:-'s Labocania skull
- my Shaochilong skull
- Theropod Databases Labocania entry

Constructive comments and critiques welcome.Enjoy.😀
The Shark-Toothed Dragon by PaleoJoe
The Shark-Toothed Dragon
This is the skull of S.maortuensis an unusually short and robust carcharodontosaurid;it is the first carchararodontosaurid from China to be described(Brussatte et al,2010).It is here restored after C.saharicus specimen SMG DIN 1 because it fit well with the remains of S.maortuensis.Constructive comments and critiques are highly welcome.Enjoy.😀
The First Shark Toothed Lizard by PaleoJoe
The First Shark Toothed Lizard
This is the C. saharicus holotype which is older(Early Cenomanian) and smaller than the neotype SMG DIN 1.It was discovered in the Baharija formation,Egypt and was destroyed in WWII by the Allies.I hope you enjoy it,comments and critiques are welcome.😀
Saharan Shark Tooth Lizard by PaleoJoe
Saharan Shark Tooth Lizard
This is my Carcharodontosaurus saharicus neotype specimen updated and formally outfitted in my new format;I found that the holotype's parietal fits nicely with this one's and maybe ended up being similar Acrocanthosaurus' parietal.Comments and critiques are welcome.Enjoy.😀

Update 1:added date,refurbished teeth of main drawing,and fixed parietal (11-22-14)
Sauron(The Dark Lord)-iops by PaleoJoe
Sauron(The Dark Lord)-iops
This is the Dark Lord of Cenomanian Africa,and is being portrayed in my new format for skulls and eventually skeletals;the thumbnail represents what we know of the specimen.Positive feedback welcome and needed.

I promised a life reconstruction of MOR 008 which I am still working on,but on the flip side I am doing more technical work aka skulls like:

Eocarcharia dinops
Carcharodontosaurus saharicus (Holotype & Neotype)-(Updates)
Carcharodontosaurus iguidensis
Sauroniops pachytholus

Soon I will turn my attention to other theropods.

I am 15 years old and I live in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Dinosaurs came into my life 10 years ago and they are my prime interest (second are Transformers). I am currently an amateur paleoartist and a big transformers fan.
