    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Complete article here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/02724634.2019.1570222 Intro: Hyainailourine hyaenodonts are among the largest terrestrial carnivorous mammals known. The clade is widely dispersed, found in Eurasia, North America, and Afro-Arabia in the Paleogene and early Neogene. In this study, we describe dental and postcranial material from Simbakubwa kutokaafrika, gen. et sp. nov., the most complete hyainailourine known from sub-Saharan Africa. The material is from a relatively young adult from the early Miocene locality of Meswa Bridge, Kenya. Simbakubwa differs from Hyainailouros in exhibiting lingually oriented molar protocones, gracile metastyles, and buccolingually compressed, shearing canines. Like other large Miocene hyainailourines, Simbakubwa has deep carnassial notches on the molars and tall paracones fused to shorter metacones forming single piercing cusps. A Bayesian phylogenetic analysis recovers Simbakubwa as the sister taxon of a clade of large-bodied Miocene hyainailourines that includes Hyainailouros and Megistotherium. Bayesian ancestral state reconstruction supports an Afro-Arabian origin for Hyainailourinae with subsequent dispersal to Eurasia during the early Miocene. Regression analysis based on carnassial size is applied to Simbakubwa and closely related hyainailourines, recovering a body mass up to 1,500 kg for the new taxon. The evolution and extinction of Hyainailourinae offers important insights for interpreting ecological transitions from Paleogene to Neogene faunas in Afro-Arabia and Eurasia.

    Darn typos! Corrected. Hmm I suddenly wonder if it was wise to share this.

    Scientists discovered a gigantic carnivore from the Miocene. it was probably twice as big as a Polar Bear Lived in what's now Eurasia, North America, Africa and Arabia. It was capable of killing an Elephantsized prey It is named Simbakubwa kutokaafrika.( Swahili for Giant African Lion)

    On the other hand I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the Efreeti and Djinni. Win some lose some.

    Hm, Argent being 4 inches smaller is something I would have liked to know as well.

    The Year of The Goblin...maybe

    Indeed, I get my inspiration from both fictional and historical sources and from projects like yours, but in the end I give it my own twist and I include whatever I want in my projects and paint it the way i want it. So that's definitely a thing we both do. FUN! That's the main factor!

    I get that! And I like your take on these. There is no dissapointment on my part at all, I love your projects and I do get a little inspired to make up stories, but those are also just for fun. I paint my Reptilian Army for fun, and I try to paint each creature as an individual, makes for a colourful and disordely wild group. Much more fun than following strict rules. So I can relate.

    another plus, these are stackable and some versions come with little wheels for easy moving.
