microecos:

Adapted from Duria antiquior the single most important piece of paleoart ever produced. Not a bad version, though censoring out the pooping fish was a mistake.
unnaturalist:

There once was an Ichthyosaurus,Who lived when the earth was all porous,Be he fainted with shameWhen he first heard his name,And departed a long time before us.
biomedicalephemera:

Animaux perdus [“Lost Animals” - colloquial term for extinct creatures]

Dictionnaire Pittoresque d’Histoire Naturelle et des Phenomenes de la Nature. F. E. Guerin, 1833.



Reblogging for the poem and Duria antiquior link. Both of them are excellent.
