A Hiatus at last!

Whew, it's been getting a bit dusty here in the Paleo Kingdom. Exams are over and things have entered a new stage. And pterosaurs will dominate the next few weeks. I'm working on a lot of new things right now, paleo-related and not. Since the pterosaur gallery on ArtEvolved will be opening soon - AND since the debate surrounding it has grabbed a bit too much of my attention (and that of many others) - I've decided to take a break from pterosaurs (and mile-long blog posts) and spill just a few beans on my next project... (which incidentally will NOT contain any pterosaurs!)

Here's a preliminary sketch for part of it. Anyone dare to guess what this creature is?

(Hint - it's anything but obvious.)

Good luck paleo fans :) Post your guesses below.

Kentrosaurus seems too obvious. Nice neck & head posture, though. ;-)

I have to say I like the head and neck posture too.

Especially in light of the recent article by Darren Naish pointing out how Stegosaurs with the usual straight low necks are wrong...

Nima said...

LOL It's not kentrosaurus (yeah I know it's been a while!). I wouldn't make it that easy! But you're getting warmer...

As for the neck, thanx. It's a pure GSP tribute, that one!

I think it's that Portuguese long necked Stegosaur - Miragaia.

Nima said...

Good guess, but still wrong :( Miragaia had a much longer neck than this guy, almost as long as the tail in fact - the species I drew has pretty much the standard-sized Stegosaur neck (in this diagram, it's only a bit over a meter in length).

However, you're still getting warmer. It shared the same habitat as Miragaia.

Hi!
Maybe is Dacentrurus, rests of this stegosaurid were fonded in England, France and Pourtugal...

Lexovisaurus durobrivensis Hoffstetter 1957 (=Omosaurus durobrivensis Hulke, 1887); early-middle Callovian.

Cf. Galton, P. M., 1985; "British plated dinosaurs (Ornithischia, Stegosauria)"; J. Vert Paleontol. 5: 211-254.
