Tired of Tyrannosaurus?  Sick of Smilodon? Craving weird, bizarre, and/or obscure prehistoric organisms?
We've got the solution for you! No, this time seriously!
Machaeroides and avancna have founded a new deviantART Club that caters to obscure and arcane prehistoric animals.  You won't find "popular" critters such as Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Pterodactylus, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor, Spinosaurus, Pteranodon, Deinonychus, Elasmosaurus, or Dimetrodon here, as we regard such subjects as passé, bordering on trite (our apologies to those who hold these particular genera in high regard).
We intend to make an effort to focus on lesser known creatures to the public, such as Stahleckeria potens, Keratocephalus moloch, Shokawa ikoi, Opabinia regalis, Pseudopalatus andersoni, or Astrapotherium  magnus, for example. The organisms can be either plant or animal.
Anyone interested is free to join, and please inquire about available club positions!

Members are welcome to send us a deviation at any time of the day.

Thanks avancna. I'm familiar with the first one, Theriodictis was only briefly mentioned in there and it focused mostly on Dusicyon and Canis nehringi. The other one about Protocyon I haven't yet read though.

Maybe this could help a little, too.…
From what little I could glean off the internet, Theriodictis was a wolf-sized (hyper)carnivore closely related to bush dogs and Protocyon

And for those that watched Terra Nova on FOX, on Thur Sept 29 at 8pm and again at 11pm is Terra Nova: Genesis, which is I would guess a preview/prequel of before the show because the summary basically has many things said on the episodes that aired.
