Literature
The Five Races
The "Five Races" refers to the five sapient species of the genus Homo present on Telluris.
Humans: (Homo sapiens) Medium-sized diurnal omnivores. The most widespread "race". Average 5-6 feet tall.
Giants: (Homo giganteus): Very large, robust, diurnal omnivores. Once ruled over much of the world, but are now a dying breed. Size varies between 8-10 feet tall.
Fae: (Homo nympha) Also known as "the Fair Folk" due to their fair skin. Gracile crepuscular omnivores with large eyes and pointed ears. Due to their unusual appearance, and crepuscular habits, they are often attributed with supernatural powers by superstitious humans. Average 5-6 feet tall.
Gnomes: (Homo pygmaeus): Often nicknamed "halflings" or simply "the Little People". Small nocturnal omnivores closely related to (or possibly descended from) fae. 2-3 feet tall.
Orks: (Homo orcus): Large, robust, nocturnal carnivores with dark grey skin, and prom

Literature
The Fenghuang
The Fenghuang (Augustogallus orientalis) is a species of galliforme bird indigenous to the eastern Orient.
Physical description
The Fenghuang is a roughly peacock-sized bird with mostly bright yellow and orange feathers covering most of the body. The flight feathers are sky blue. The tail feathers are brilliantly coloured in yellow, red, blue, black and white. The legs are long and yellow. The head is decorated with a rooster-like comb, and a feathery crest.
Behaviour
Unlike most other galliformes, Fenghuangs are monogamous, and exhibit very little sexual dimorphism. Fenghuangs are primarily carnivorous, feeding primarily on small reptiles like snakes.
Distribution and habitat
The Fenghuang is found throughout the eastern Orient in woodland, grassland, and highland forests. Their primary method of predation is stamping on prey until it is rendered stunned or unconscious enough to swallow.

Activity


Hi guys,

There hasn't been a great deal of activity on my blog Mesozoic Musings recently - but I assure you, I have a lot of ideas in the works. I am currently quite interested in tyrannosaurids, the unused potential of keratin, and hadrosaurids. In particular at the moment the latter, as some activity on Twitter has led me to be discussing a theory on hadrosaurid vocalisations with a pretty awesome and clever person who just happens to be the natural history curator of a museum!
We may even, if possible, publish something in a paleontology Journal or another professional setting. Whether we do or don't, I will definitely at some point be releasing the full story on my theory, so keep an eye out over the coming months. This could be the thing that gets me out there into the professional world of paleontology! We'll have to wait and see. But rest assured, you'll be seeing something awesome soon enough.

Here's my latest blog post on Mesozoic Musings: mesozoic-musings.blogspot.co.u…
I don't why the font size has gone so weird in the post, I'll sort it out as soon as I can. Anyway, I just wanted to say that, as usual, Mesozoic Musings would welcome any artwork based on, inspired by, or reintepreting ideas and theories proposed on the blog. As in the past with Pinacosaurus artwork, it will most likely be featured on the blog with a link to your DA profile.

Beach Comber
A sub-adult male Eustreptospondylus finds a young Cryptoclidus washed up after a storm, beached on a coastline of a tropical island in southern England. Please go to read the blog post I made this for, titled Spinosaurid Saga I: Aquatic Ancestors & Megalosaurid Musings: mesozoic-musings.blogspot.co.u…

Tyrannosaurus rex
My first reconstruction of Tyrannosaurus rex, and obviously pretty speculative. First of all, I've added more soft tissue around his snout and neck. If you look closely you can just about make out the line of the skull at the top of his snout. I also gave him quite extensive lips, which are endowed with whiskers. Yes, dino whiskers! These modified feathers are connected to nerve endings, making them highly sensitive. I think that sensory bristles such as these would have been quite common amongst small non-avian dinosaurs, and lives on today in the form of rictal bristles around bird beaks. However, amongst large theropods they may not have been as common, although I have speculated on Spinosaurus having sensory bristles adapted to use underwater. Other than that, he's mostly featherless, apart from some sparse bristles on his face and neck. This is because I'm not neccesarily for a full covering of feathers on all theropods. I think that amongst theropods plumage in SOME form would have been common, but I have no doubt that it would have varied a lot. Some may have been naked save for some whiskers, but many were probably covered in a thick layer of plumage. That's why I reconstructed T. rex as mostly featherless in this case, not neccesarily because I have some theory or argument against it, just to show that we don't neccasarily have to cover all theropods in feathers. Variation would probably have been present, and as paleoartists, we have the great and fun freedom of experimenting with that.

Spinosaurus
I know, I know, this is really bad, but this is my first attempt at Spinosaurus. I will probably do a better one some time. Yes, he's pretty fat, and I also gave him some soft tissue connecting the neck to the sail.
