It's awesome how many amazing animals have lived here! It's almost like from some speculative evolution project! =)

One wonders why people bother with speculative evolution at all.

Hmmm... It's an interesting though, but i think it's like giving a tribute to the past, by following the same mechanism and proposing what could happen in the future, or what the present time would look like if the past was at least slightly altered. It's a wonderful mind game, and the unseen body shapes sported by widely known animals can draw people closer to being interested in the "real" thing, and it can popularize ideas about the various alien lifeforms that almost certainly live lightyears away! It's science wrapped in an entertaining and visually attractive coat, so I think it definitely has it's place, but I think palaeoart of other animals than mammoths, sabertoothed cats and dinosaurs is equally visually pleasing, in many cases hard to believe that we actually have evidence of such animals being alife once (tullimonstrum =P) To be fair palaeoart of a lesser known species wins over any speculative project, because it's written in the rock that it's 100% real, but playing with possibilities and variables can be incredibly interesting too. ;-)
