well, this is my take on Neoclinus blanchardi, based on what I could find on google, so I don’t have all details corect.

I was checking out photos from my Naturhistorisches museum Wien trip, when I found photo of this Rhyticeros undulatus male. Originally I wanted to make something like species sheet with other views, but at 1 a.m. I wasn’t really feeling like doing so ;-)
Anyway, Rhyticeros undulatus is member of hornbill family, found in forests from far north-eastern India and Buthan, east and south through mainland Southeast Asia and the Greater Sundas, except Sulawesi. They have the dark bar on the lower throat, males have white neck while females have black one. [wiki]
Utamania torda. Razor-billed Auk. Thomas Gentry. 1882.
From my piece idea I have begun researching the time gap of 100 mya to 80 mya in NA and have found a ton of information! Ill post it written out soon but I may have about eight pages of research for this one piece. But with that research it will be a piece from this time zone inside the Cedar Mountain formation featuring Eolambia and Animantarx with the subject of Siats. Im going to draw a neovenator skeleton with the pieces of Siats found placed in before I draw the composition sketch so expect that later on!
