Fitting after Marc provided us another excellent analysis of Ely Kish's work: Christoph Hoppenbrock called my attention to this photo he took in the Phillippines. Case study in what shrink wrapping looks like in a real animal, and why the world of paleoart is better for having abandoned the trope. An ailing saltwater crocodile. No issues with paleoartists depicting sick animals, but when you've got an entire environment populated by them, it sure looks like a Mesozoic plague is happening!
