Alabama Cretaceous Fauna by Ashere Alabama Cretaceous Fauna by Ashere
A poster version of the various art bits I've been posting. This won't be the cover, but it's cool and I thought I'd share it.

If only Sri Lanka and Kenya had non-avian dinosaurs.

I agree, that would be cool. Sri Lanka (if it had Non-avians) would most likely have similar fauna to that of India.

There has been a (dubious) Australian Ceratopsian named after Sri Lanka: Serendipaceratops arthurcclarkei. Perhaps coincidentally, "Serendip" is a former name for Sri Lanka, Sir Arthur Charles Clarke's adoptive country.

And there have been some Dinosaur-related fossils found in Kenya: www.abc.net.au/news/2005-03-10… including a possible Spinosaurid jawbone and a piece of armor plating from a Titanosaur.

Yeah. Sri Lanka would have abelisaurs, noasaurs and titanosaurs. There's also questionable abelisaur remains in the Turkana County region of Kenya. Hopefully those are abelisaur remains and not something else.

If Vermont had non-avians, it would probably have Triassic creatures like Anchisaurus or Coelophysis.

Well, that is the thing - it would be impossible for Vermont to have any Mesozoic (terrestrial) fauna due to its geology. However, there was still an interesting variety of Pleistocene animals. Though, you would have more luck in finding Non-Avian trace (and in rare cases body) fossils in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania (even on the battlefield of Gettysburg!). Even though all of the states that make up New England (the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S.A) are a part of the Newark Supergroup, Vermont and New Hampshire had no Mesozoic fauna whatsoever.

I like the Tylosaurus the best. Fascinating creatures.

Well, that's just lovely. I note some reconfigured digits on the Appalachiosaur; funny how some of those basal tyrannosaurs' forearms were a wee bit (or much) more functional-looking than their descendants. Random observation #2: it's one thing to know sharks have been doing their thing for 300-odd million years, but the awareness that such specific derivations as the goblin were kicking about Cretaceous seas somehow drives the point home.
