Not everything about this duck-like creature may be as duck-like as it seems.

In December 2013, me, John Conway and Darren Naish held a launch & signing session for our latest book, the Cryptozoologicon. We had a great time and many of our fans asked us to draw little zoology or cryptid-themed artworks on the books they bought at the event. Here is a collection of those sketches. The artwork here belongs to me, John and Darren.

Suggested sketch by armaknee : A plethora of Squamozoic concepts and amphibians from an earth covered 90% in water (I’m sure you remember that concept of mine)
Yep, I remember :) Here are three animals from such a world; a lurking, armored estuarine form that works like an ecological crossover between a turtle and a crocodile, an amphibian equivalent of an ichthyosaur (but with gills,) and a big, semi-terrestrial herbivore.

Suggested sketch by bugcthulhu: a gorgonopsid version of a panda bear.
Here is a fat, semi-herbivorous gorgonopsid feeding on horsetail-like plants. Such a plausible niche, I wouldn’t be surprised if a fossil like this turned up someday.

doctor-beak answered: what do you think a sapient cephalopod would look like?
Here is an intelligent cephalopod, holding an Archimedes screw cast out of a semi-transparent, organic resin secreted by corals grown in specially-cast molds. It has an enlarged brain, a bigger siphon with a dedicated pumping chamber, and its tentacles have assumed rigid joints like cartilaginous fingers. (In real life, octopi arms also, briefly, form such joints when manipulating heavy items.)

Suggested sketch by cmipalaeo: How about hypothetical rauisuchians, etc that survived and became dominant at the end of the Triassic, rather than dinosaurs? This drawing shows a gracile, bounding herbivore descended from Effigia-like animals, and a giant, secondarily herbivorous grazer descended from Erythrosuchus-like ancestors, in scale with a human explorer.
