Really? Well, that's new to me. Thanks for the info ;)
Do you know if there is any kind of paper on the net about it?

Most probably no lips - no milk, no lips!

Really nice. May I ak you a thing? Since I'm a little ignorant about "proto-mammals", is it wrong to restore animals such Inostrancevia and Gorgonops with fully developed mammal-like lips?
Still, Cool picture :)

In reality Trochosaurus (=Trochosuchus)is poor known, it can be not so related to Lycosuchus. In any case this animal is'n direct ancestor of mammals, but side branch.

I love looking through your artwork - always makes me want to grab an encyclopaedia and read more about the weird and wonderful creatures of the past.

Oh, splendid new installment of images! This is my fave, for all its veiny, furry, wrinkly, waddling details.
