Top Predators Need to Eat Something

[media-credit id=1 align=”alignnone” width=”465″][/media-credit]

Dunkleosteus is considered the top predator of its time (415 – 360 million years ago). It grew up to 8 to 10 meters long. But what does an animal this size eat? And what does one do with those huge slicing jaws? I theorize an even larger filter feeder of the time that held the whale niche. Very tasty treats for Dunkleosteus. Again I have included my friend here to encourage him to make a firsthand examination. This could get dicey…

A friend of mine is working on some ink drawings of Paleo-Predators. I am encouraging him to have a first hand look before firming up the details on the monster Eurypterid… (note Dunkleosteus waiting in the deeper waters in the upper left).

Possum species were one of the few to survive the holocost of the world at the end of the Cretaceaus Period… 4 out of 5 possum species did die out, however.
