Forgotten Dinosaur

©Alain Beneteau
Tarascosaurus has been one of those dinosaurs that has somewhat escaped the limelight of the dinosaur world. Its inclusion in Dinosaur Planet made it better and more widely known. The dinosaur never gained enough renown to make an impact on the toy or model market, the video game market, or the children's book niche. Tarascosaurus is simply not that well known to the outside world. It is very unfortunate for people that like Abelisaurids, insular dwarves, or Late Cretaceous apex predators like Tarascosaurus. Alain Beneteau clearly likes the dinosaur,as he sketches them often, including the wonderful illustration below and a painting that was shown earlier this week.
