Gastornis by EsthervanHulsen Gastornis by EsthervanHulsen
Darwinius masillae (Ida) looks at gastornis. Both animals have been found in the Messel pit in Germany. They lived about 47 million years ago.

Look closely in the background, there are other animals hidden there (a prehistoric small predator, two woodpecker-like birds, a lizzard, an ant and a grass hopper).

Watercolor and gouache on board
37x52 cm

This image appears in the book "Ida", written by prof. Jørn Hurum and Torstein Helleve, and illustrated by me.

Well, that is the theory. Another says they did not eat meat, so in this painting, I left the monkey´s on doubt too. :)

Never would I think that a piece of Paleoart would make into the daily deviations.
Also the bird might of spotted them already, best just climb higher.

No, me neither. But there is a theory suggesting they only used their large beak for cracking open nuts, and not breaking bones. :)
