Science Art: Momma Oryctrodromeus stays in the burrow with her babies…., by Julio Lacerda

from to embiggen

I found this on the Scientific Illustration tumblr, and though it seems to have been used in an Earth Archives article with a morbid title, it originally came from the artist’s tumblog.

These critters were well preserved for millennia because they liked to hide underground… basically pre-burying themselves.

Maybe a lesson for our times?
