What I Want for 2013 by Smnt2000 What I Want for 2013 by Smnt2000
Every year, around New Year's Eve, I post here on DeviantArt a special wishlist. A wishlist where I depict some of the new species I want to see the year after. Very simple drawings, partly comic book-like (ok, more than usual), just to see if they come true. This time is no exception. The main difference is that I've been invited to the interesting Hell Creek's Collaborative Calendar (go on and take a look: [link]) and, since the deadline is for the 1st of December, I have to submit the entry earlier. No big deal, right?

Last year I wasn't very lucky: the only animal vaguely similar to one of my list was Eoabelisaurus. And, as I said, it's VAGUELY similar. So, my dear Santa Claws, What I Want For 2013?

The omnipresent feathered sauropod and flightless pterosaur, a gorgonopsian with unambiguos evidence of fur, a little new pachycephalosaurid with clear Psittacosaurus-like quills, a Concavenator-like sailed ornithopod, a new dilophosaurid, a giant scansoriopterygid, a long-necked and vaguely sauropod-mimic iguanodontian and a Torvosaurus-sized herbivorous megalosauroid (friendly called "Dumbface-osaurus"). Oh, and the first little guy is a nectar-eating alvarezsaurid. This one makes me think a lot.

Ah, sweet dreams are made of this...

Enjoy it!

Ps: I know, "Dumbface-osaurus" and the dilophosaurid are feathered. Read this: [link]

A little late maybe, but look:…

Flightless pterosaurs (Not any of the big ones this time) confirmed?

Peters' flightless pterosaur is a doubtful discovery and it still needs a further description by other pterosaur experts.
Hatzegopteryx could also be a flightless pterosaur since we know so little about it (as I wrote on my blog: ktboundary-smnt2000.blogspot.i…) but it's a mere conjecture and nothing more.

We have yet to find a confirmed flightless pterosaur but as of now we have these two possible specimens.

So, Giant scansoriopterigid, eh?

Well, it would have been awesome, don't you agree?

Headbang! Yeah friggin' awesomeHeadbang! 
-Too bad you're not accepting Lurdusaurus, we would have atleast one wish comfirmed!
-With the redesigned Hatzegopteryx monster we are getting closer and closer to a flightless pterosaur.
- Sinosaurus triassicus could fit as dilophosaurid although I'm not sure whether it is from 2013 or a species on its own.
-There's Acrotholus, the new little pachy, but no quills. :C
-Thinking gorgonopsians are even older than dinosaurs, we'll have to settle with ambigous evidence for now.
-I heard there's a sailed ornithopod on the block... not sure though
That comment still confirms nothing but there is atleast something to base off of XD
Haha, a herbivorous megalosauroid, nice :)

I like all of your ideas, maybe some of them become true. I hope so.
