Marine crocoracoon by JWArtwork Marine crocoracoon by JWArtwork
Cetiscotherium gigantae, also known as the giant marine crocoracoon. With a lenght of six meters it is quite large for a crocoracoon [link] (the record is 7.5 meters for a freshwater species). The convergence with chevrotian-whales is stunning and it is not surprising to hear that this predator is, just like most marine crocoracoons, specialised in catching fast and small chevrotian-dolphins, but also has an appetite for other prey, such as sharks of young individuals of big fish.

The marine crocoracoon lives some 131 million years in the future, in the Early-Palalom, around the waters of the westcoast of North-America. It shares its habitat with an extraordinary fauna that includes lots of chevrotain-dolphins [link] , which can serve as prey, but can also pose a danger to the crocoracoon himself [link] . Next to this rich mammalian marine fauna, there are also some notable fish to be found, amongst which are the mammal-shark [link] (not the crocodile-mahi) and fast predators such as the tuna-salmon [link] and the hunter-salmon [link] .

P.S. If you like this, become a member (request is automatically approved) of the Neozoic-Project-group, to see more of this appear in the future, or even design your own Neozoic creatures and submit to the group! :) [link]

P.S. "One more drawing and the crocoracoons are complete and you can start drawing out their evolution. ;)" Only if you still feel like it, of course! ;p

I'm glad to hear you do! :) But what body part(s) are you having problems with:? Or is it the overall body shape:? If it are the teeth or eyes or so, I can put those in for you! But don't worry about the time or pressure! If it's not working out the way you want it, just take a break and take all the time you need! ;)
