Welcome to the DA group dedicated to prehistoric/extinct animals that are not dinosaurs or pterosaurs. (Not that we have anything against the 'Thunder Lizards' but there are plenty of groups dedicated to them already on DA.)

I'm not very good with keeping up a blog, so don't expect to hear much from me in that regard.

Purpose: A place to find artwork of any kind about prehistoric and extinct animals, outside of dinosaurs or pterosaurs.

Submissions: We accept artwork based on prehistoric and extinct mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, etc. This includes any recently extinct animals. We do not accept dinosaurs or pterosaurs of any kind! I'm sorry, but there are plenty of groups out there for them already.

Addendum: There might be some confusion as to what classifies a bird. For the purpose of this group, a bird has a defined beak or bill (toothed or not), rather than jaws.

I will research the submissions to ensure they follow this rule.

More to be added as needed.

Group Info

This is a group dedicated to art of any sort about the prehistoric fauna that roamed the Earth however long ago. The only exception being Dinosaurs. Why? Because there are groups already out there dedicated to that class of animal.

Outside of that one exception, we welcome any class of prehistoric, or extinct animal: bird, reptile, mammal, fish, insect, etc.

Hi, I tried to submit a deviation but my request got ignored. I make trading cards of all kinds of extinct creatures. If you don't mind me asking, why were they ignored?

An RP group surrounding Prehistoric Mammals is being constructed right now!
Give it a watch if this sounds interesting to you!!!


(Sorry for advertising, I just thought it would interest some people here! I can't find any other paleo groups w/o dinosaurs.....)

How about I assist you by becoming a cofounder?

Thank you for accepting my terror bird image, though you may want to move it from "Mammals" to the "Birds" folder.

Thank K4nK4n, I fixed which folder it went into now.

Hi Pyroraptor. Sorry, but I don't accept every piece. I probably would have taken it, if it were on plain paper.

oh that's it
DOn't worry them! I would submit it in white paper for the next time ;)
