Pink Dinosaur #220

Pink Titanis by David Tana
27 – Titanis walleri – this flightless, carnivorous phorusrhacid known as “Waller’s titan” lived in the Pliocene and Early Pleistocene (~ 4.9 – 1.8 mya) of North America. It was one of the last surviving members of its group, and the only “terror bird” known to have migrated out of its ancestral home in South America.  The reference for this restoration comes from a skeleton (cast?) on display at the Florida Museum of Natural History.  Pen and color pencil on paper.
