Art illustration - Prehistoric Mammals - Protypotherium: is an extinct genus of placental mammals interatheriidae family, suborder typotheria. They lived from the Paleocene to Miocene. They are the size of a modern rabbit, but its tail and legs were long and the head was as rat. Had 44 teeth, The neck was short and the body was long and had a long, thick tail.

Art illustration - Aquatic animals - Tiktaalik: is a fish sarcopterygian (lobed fins) Late Devonian period, with many features of tetrapods, which is considered an important transitional fossil. It lived about 375 million years ago. Paleontologists suggest that Tiktaalik was an intermediate form between fish as Panderichthys, which lived 385 million years ago, and the latest as Acanthostega and Ichthyostega tetrapods that lived about 20 million years later.

Art illustration - Aquatic animals - Platysomus: is an extinct genus of ray-finned fish that lived in the Carboniferous and Permian periods. Fossils have been found worldwide.was about 18 centimetres (7.1 in) long, and shaped similarly to the discus fish, having the same flattened body and alongated dorsal and anal fins. Its jaws were placed vertically under the braincase, giving it a wide gape. Platysomus is thought to have fed on plankton, and lived in both fresh and salt water.

Art illustration - Aquatic Reptile - Rhomaleosaurus: ("strong lizard") is an extinct genus of romaleosáurido pliosauroide, who lived in the Lower Jurassic (Toarcian, between 183 to 175,600,000 years ago), known Northamptonshire and Yorkshire in the UK. It could grow to about 7 meters long. It was a carnivorous marine reptile. Like other Pliosaurs, Rhomaleosaurus fed on ichthyosaurs, ammonites and other plesiosaurs.

Art illustration - Dinosaurs - Nanotyrannus: ("tiny tyrant") is an extinct genus represented by a single species of theropod dinosaurs tyrannosaurid, who lived in the late Cretaceous period, about 68-66 million years ago, in the Maastrichtian, in what is now North America. It is the smallest known tyrannosaurid, since only measured about 5.5 meters long and 2 meters high, his weight of about 900 kg, short arms, legs and long legs.

Art illustration - Aquatic Reptile - Muraenosaurus: ("brown reptile") is an extinct genus of plesiosaur criptoclido who lived in the Middle Jurassic, in what is now Europe. Its fossils have been found in England and France. Remains probably belonging to this genus are also found in Argentina.crecía to 6 meters long, with about half of this length consists of the animal's neck.

Art illustration - Aquatic animals - Orthacanthus: is an extinct genus of sharks, which appeared 400 million years ago in the Carboniferous period. It has been named as "the terror of the marshes". Its fossils have been found in North America and Europe.

Art illustration - Dinosaurs - Alectrosaurus: ("single lizard") was a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived tyrannosauroid late Cretaceous period, approximately 75 to 70 million years ago, in the Campanian and the Maastrichtian, in Central Asia. It was a bipedal carnivore with a shape similar to its much larger relative, Tyrannosaurus rex body. It was however much smaller, probably about 5 meters long and 2 meters high, showing an estimated weight of 600 kg.
