Too big for a deer animation, so I’ll leave it as its own animation. Jurassic Month is around the corner people. What Mesozoic creature should I use for Jurassic Month. Time close around 7 pm.

  • Anodontosaurus
  • Bambiraptor
  • Falcarius
  • Saichania
  • Sanajeh
  • Talos
  • Xiaosaurus
  • Zhenyuanopterus

That creature looks like a mix of giraffe and elk!

It’s also too big to be using a deer animation

It might be a bit of a stretch, but they could use the Indricotherium rig for Sivatherium. They are sort of similar in overall shape, and Ludia have used weird combinations of rigs and creatures before.

I remember the Onchopristis from JW:TG, with the shark animations, and that thing was an abomination.

That sawfish is actually related to shark

Yeah, so the model makes perfect sense, but it uses the regular shark animations where it uses its jaws like a shark, while feeding and attacking instead of using its rostrum. They essentially turned it into Megalodon with a sawfish rostrum instead of an actual sawfish.

Agree. Also, Sivatherium runs like a giraffe

Cool. I love siva. Super underrated
