Your Moment of Paleoart Zen

It’s back to the Triassic this month, with Keller Pyle’s scene of a victorious Postosuchus tucking into a nice, hot, presumably fragrant Placerias.

I love that trio of hungry Coelophysis waiting in the wings, hoping for the chance to nab some bites of their own while another Postosuchus lumbers toward the scene. I feel like there’s gonna be some strife in a few moments. Keep up with Keller at his website, DeviantArt gallery, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.
