Yes, according to some estimates, its bite was stronger than a lion's bite. To be more precise, he is descended from the most archaic members of Diprotodontia, which were more like possums and preferred to omnivorous diet
About this picture to me was a criticism in other websites. Specifically, I am a constant participant of the Russian Zoological Forum [link] By the way, I have consulted with experts about the flexibility of the forelimbs of marsupial lion. As expected, the flexibility most is developed in the shoulder joint - he could freely move their forelimbs almost like primate. Terrible power of muscular embrace made it possible to tightly grab the neck of even adults diprotodon and bite to the throat. Now in the Thylacoleo on this picture proportions of body parts was corrected more true than it was before. Thank you for your comments and ANY criticism - through this I hones the accuracy and quality of work. In what follows I will try to pay more attention to the representatives of the Australian fauna. Thanks again for your comments!
As I said, I enjoy this work and I don't think it should be changed. But if you are serious about rebooting it as you said in an earlier comment, then I should also point out that Thylacoleo had elbows more flexible then as depicted by you. Thylacoleo was a very much a grappler. I only point this out because you seem to be a person who takes pride in his work. I'd hate for you to have to "reboot" again. Frankly I feel bad for saying anything in the first place. I hope you won't take offensive as I really do enjoy your work and I'd hate to upset you.
Anyway, you said you didn't have many sources to draw from, so I dug some up for you, though the 2nd and 3rd links are videos and I don't know how good your English is for you to watch them.
[link]: A good bio on Thylacoleo from the Australian Museum. [link]: A good piece centered entirely around Thylacoleo. It's from this I found about about the kangaroo-like tail. [link]: More about Megalania, but it has a good piece of Thylacoleo.
Largely agree. Image was rebooted. "Thylacoleo had elbows more flexible then as depicted by you." This point is a bit puzzled me, because, to my knowledge, the flexibility of the forelimb is determined not so much the ability to bend at the elbows (elbows bent well in all animals) as well the ability to rotate in the shoulder and in the ability to rotate the brush to him and from him.
Tried all the tricks - not, in this perspective, hard to emphasize this characteristic of this predator. I'll try make a hunting scene where the Thylacoleo catches prey. In any case, I am preparing a series of pictures with him.
It's your work. Like I said, I feel like shit. Your first upload was good enough for me.
And speaking of Thylacoleo, how come you don't do more Australian and New Zealand megafauna? You create so many animals from the America's, Africa and Eurasia but Thylacoleo seems to be your only one from Australia.
Wow1 I didn't see your work in a while... it's good to see more of your prehistoric mammals again. Not to mention that it is a very realistic marsupial lion (one of my favorite marsupials). nice touch of the pair of diprotodontids in the background, by the way
