Tired of Tyrannosaurus?  Sick of Smilodon? Craving weird, bizarre, and/or obscure prehistoric organisms?
We've got the solution for you!www.stfd.net/. 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!

Rules:

1) To Join: Simply request to join group by pressing the "join our group" button. Put the group on your watch list. Putting the avatar link in your journal is optional. You will then be accepted as a member.

2) Submission: To submit artwork, press the "submit to this gallery" button found in the featured folder. You must submit obscure/lesser known extinct organism paleo-art, or at least something relevant to the subject. This club will not accept any famous fossil, science fiction/fantasy, and/or anthropomorphic artwork. Please make an effort to make realistic prehistoric organisms. Members are welcome to send us a deviation at any time of the day.

3) To become an administrator, simply request to become either a co-founder or any administrator. Once you become an administrator, be sure to check messages frequently for any member submissions or requests.

So, is this just about dinosaurs?

We want to focus more towards unusual or little known prehistoric animals, in addition to dinosaurs.

So none of your links on Theriodictis worked. I was wondering if you knew where I could find some good ones? If not, can you tell me what you know about Theriodictis' paleocology? I haven't been able to find much on the internet about it.

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. onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10…
From what little I could glean off the internet, Theriodictis was a wolf-sized (hyper)carnivore closely related to bush dogs and Protocyon
