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!

On my blog too: [link]

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

A little late maybe, but look: www.reptileevolution.com/sos24…

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.

(Another very late reply)
Judging by some of the Azhdarchids, it would seem the existance of flightless pterosaurs is more plausible than not.
I will not be surprised if (once) they are discovered.

-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

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

Good. We need Pachycephalosaurus not to feel so awkward amongst his kind. He's like the extremely tall teenager in a school of midgets.

Giacchè ADORO speculare su aspetto e vita dei dinosauri non posso che applaudire la tua "lista dei desideri"!

Probably. Then, let's say a taxon so close to Dilophosaurus for naming definitely that family :P

I think we could all use a few things on this list haha.
The pachycephalosauroid especially.
I love all of the "odd-one-out" dinosaurs, I believe there is one in each distinct group, such as Balaur, Miragaia, Brachytrachelopan, Icthyovenator, and so on. They're all so odd...but so awesome...

Hairy sauropod for the win. Or at least some integument. Theropods can't be the only ones to have all the fun, no?

Quite similar to my wishlist! I'd add a jehol alvarezsaur though- pretty much every other coelurosaur clade is represented there.

The sauropod-mimic iguanodontian.....ummm.....Lurdusaurus gigas, I might call it, and Concavenator-sailed ornithopod Phytospineus lashoyasi........ummm, new dilophosaurid, I might say it'd be Dilophosauroides sinica, and I might say the gorgonopsid should be Filamentarctops viatkensis. The rest, I dunno. Giant scasorioterygid looks plain creepy, however.

Why not Lurdusaurus; the existing species is already sauropod like? And I may be the first to notice those freaky but awesome toes on Vegevenator.

Smnt2000 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I want an even more sauropod-like ornithopod, more than Lurdusaurus.
Also: Vegevenator? Dumbface-osaurus you mean. What's freaky with its feet :P ?
Reply
:iconorionide5:
Orionide5 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
It's walking on the tips of its toes, like each foot is a tripod. An alternative to a long neck for high browsing, perhaps evolved in the absence of sauropods?
