Ceratosaurus juvenile by WaylonRowley Ceratosaurus juvenile by WaylonRowley
This is sort of a WIP, but I'm happy with it for the most part. It was done for the North American Museum of Ancient Life. I based it off of a Ceratosaurus specimen on display there. And yes, the fangs really are that big in the fossil.

I tried to research something about why ceratosaurus' teeth were so huge but no one on the internet seems to notice :O

holly crap looks like he can bite someone in half with thos 1 meter long teeth but still probably took a long time to draw the skin

Thanks, ferahgo. I'm still working out the kinks in that technique, though. I need to pay more attention to my light source, I think. We'll see if I can fix that in my next drawing, which should be ready in roughly a week, universe permitting.

Wow, that has got to be the most impressive scale detail I have seen in quite a while.

Wonderful picture. And I won't tell you the teeth look too big LOL. I can't see a problem with them, though I can't really tell much from the size of the photo of this little brat. I've certainly seen similar sized rows of fangs on other creatures. I would question how he *used* them, but I don't think I'd question the size.

My guess is that it was an ambush predator that avoided prolonged struggles with prey (the teeth were very thin). It might inflict a few very deep bites, and allow the victim to bleed out. This might explain why the teeth seem relatively bigger in juveniles. They needed to accomplish the same task with a smaller overall body size. Just a guess, until I get the time machine working again (cracked head gasket).
