The Incredibles (2004)Rest In Peace Elizabeth Peña
Oh boy guys it’s a nice new template! This one was designed by miss-hudders and I think it looks great :)
I’mma watch it a bunch of times, just to let them now how much a story that celebrates my culture does have an audience >:C… (I know it doesn’t make that much of a differene but it’s what I can do.
workin’ on my app for pokemon amie
Revamped my original Xatu concepts in order to make this guy
PREHISTORIC SHARK: MEGALODON
Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived 1.5 million years ago and as you can probably tell from the above pictures it was HUGE, here are some few facts
- It’s teeth were over 7 inches long
- It’s bite can deliver from 10.2-18.6 tons of force, enough to crush a prehistoric whale’s skull like a grape
- It feasted on prehistoric whales, dolphins, squids, fish, and even giant turtles
- It’s fossils have been found all over the world
- No one knows why it went extinct
That last fact is the scariest fact
Actually, we do know* why: Food and competition. Megalodon was, like it’s relative the Great White Shark, A temperate-water creature and a high-energy cost one as well. This means first that it lived in mostly warm waters, not venturing too far north or south and was not a deep-sea dweller. Second, it needed a continuous food supply to keep that massive body ready to spring into action at any time.
A shark the size of Megalodon would need a huge amount of food and because of its size it would have to eat whales in order to survive. But there aren’t that many whales and most of them spend a lot of time in polar waters. Unlike the time when they were alive, there just aren’t that many huge marine animals living in warmer waters to keep a beast like that alive.
Supposing it survived on consuming a lot of smaller prey, it would then be competing against a miriad of succesfull predators with a much more eficient body when it comes to hunting medium-sized prey such as Killer Whales and Great Whites themselves.
It’s a process that has happened before: Creatures grow huge in lush environments, something happens that either diminishes the amount of their food supply or gives another creature a better edge when competing for it and the numbers dwindle until there’s none left.
As an example of this there’s the Kelenken: biggest and baddest of the Terror Birds that were gradually pushed to extintion due to their usual prey items dying out and more efficient mammalian predators getting what little options they had left.
*This is of course a theory, which some would argue that means we don’t really know why. But in that case we don’t really know why anything went extinct except what we killed ourselves, seeing as we weren’t there in prehistoric times to go look.
Day 18/19: Cauldron & eyeballs
I’m late with these, but I had plans for the next few, so i’m trying to do them to help get my art flow goin’ again! Working on the crowd shot and finishing up the film c:
The first one always gets me for all the little details, specially how Link seemingly tried to murder Ganondorf in his sleep.
Reblogging for grumpy dad Ganondorf.
