Tiktaalik Hunter by JohnRaptor Tiktaalik Hunter by JohnRaptor
A Tiktaalik hunter emerges from the water's edge in search of dinner.

The Tiktaalik is a recently discovered "missing link" fish, with features intermediate between ancient fish and early land creatures, including limb-like fins. Scientists think it lived along the shore, perhaps using it's limb-fins to propel itself onto land and back into the water for hunting, just like the one in my picture here.

Except the real ones probably didn't have tridents and shell necklaces.

Probably.

Ink & Colored pencil

... and the trident's didn't have heads tipped with metals requiring mining, smelting, alloys, and metalworking... all requiring tool use.

... probably.

Awesome pic of the Tiktaalik though.

... but I think they TOTALLY could have had shell necklaces.

tasty slugs and arthropleura babies, or wandering baby eurypterids.

Hermit crab? I still think it's a mutant snail!

I love your sense of whimsy.
