Mermay 2022: Paleontology Infuenced Merfolk
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3
The final batch of drawings for Mermay! Thank you all so, so much for the response. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this series to be so well liked and successful on so many of my social media platforms.
I felt like for the final batch, I wanted to explore how paleontology influenced merfolk would look like, and how they influence ‘modern’ merfolk. (Prehistoric Planet probably influenced my decision haha)
These are the lads and lasses that help found the formation for merfolk culture, from first-of-the-firsts like the Anomalocaris and the Tiktaalik to true giants of the sea, like Shastasaurus, Livyatan and Megalodon. The Megalodon is Kara’s personal idol. (Kara’s the great white shark featured in all previous batches, here she’s teaching kids how cool history is!)
The most important figure here in Merfolk history is actually the Mosasaurus, AKA The Ocean Lord. He was a Barbarian King who hated landlubbers and was the sworn nemesis of "The Tyrant King”. He’s revered by modern Merfolk for his combination of strength, cunning, battle prowess and magnetic personality.
However, a tablet written during his time paints a different picture of the Ocean Lord: One of an arrogant, bloodthirsty ruler whose conquering ways and obsessive hatred of the landlubbers did more harm long term than anyone could have imagined. A shout out to @miuzes , who motivated and helped me with tips all throughout the way. Another shout out @florence-is-gay / @legendary-disaster​ , who made fan art of Kara!. I’m STILL freaking out! Never would I expect I’d get fan art for this! :D

Happy first day of #SharkWeek! We’re kicking things off in a big way, with the megalodon! The prehistoric behemoth had the strongest bite force of any known animal, including T. rex. But these two megapredators never met.🦈🦖 The megalodon evolved just 23 million years ago–that’s long after large dinosaurs went extinct. This extinct shark lived until 3.6 million years ago, meaning it shared the planet with early hominids and overlapped with the great white shark for about a million years! See this life-size megalodon model and explore the underwater world of these amazing animals in the Museum’s special exhibition Sharks, which includes footage from @Discovery’s @SharkWeek! Link in bio for more details on our Sharks exhibition. Photo: E.

My favorite thing is thinking that they'll find some newly discovered shark and everyone will be like "oMG IT'S THE MEG MEG ITS THE MEGALODON MEGALODON WE TOLD YOU S—" and it's just Some Shark. Like average size or maybe even on the smaller size, nothing really surprising... Just an absolute yep a shark.
I want to see these fuckers cry as they learn it isn't their dear Megalodon, no it's just a normal ass modern shark that hadn't been discovered yet because of sheer luck

Daily fish fact #186
Sharks!

Sharks have a skeleton made from cartilage! This makes determining the appearance of certain prehistoric sharks quite difficult, as cartilage doesn't fossilise and we're instead only left with some teeth. With context clues like the size of the teeth, any possible related shark species and the time the teeth are from help us make good educated guesses though! It's never entirely up to guesswork.

It's estimated that the megalodon could have grown up to 65 feet in length, bigger than scientists previously thought.

It’s Day 10 of 12 Days of Sharks—and since it’s Thursday, we’re throwing it back! This image shows an early reconstruction of the jaw of the famous extinct shark Otodus megalodon, displayed in the Museum circa 1909. Megalodon measured up to three times the length of great white sharks, with a dorsal fin that is estimated to have been more than 5 feet (1.5 meters) high! See a life-sized megalodon model in the Museum's new special exhibition Sharks, or visit an updated megalodon jaw in the Hall of Vertebrate Origins.
