Cool. Can you make a picture of the prehistoric wildebeest, "Rusingoryx"? In fact, if it was any bigger than the two living species of wildebeest, maybe you could add it to your megafauna pictures.

I think you should have included the Arsinotherium, and the Common eland in it. Both the Giant and Common eland are big. But, other than that, it looks nice

Africa truly is the last "stronghold" for megafauna, and even then some of them are living life on the edge.

Why do you count a Cape Zebra as a prehistoric animal?

It is indeed an extinct animal. I guess you should have confused it with the modern cape mountain zebra which is small. I forgot to add the word 'giant', it's the giant cape zebra. You might have had a doubt about it's large size, if you didn't then that will be surprising because modern zebras are not that big. Search - equus capensis. These are most likely the largest zebras to have existed and among the largest equids.

Well at least you could have added more extinct megafauna in this picture like Afrovenator, Aegyptosaurus, Bahariasaurus, Deltadromeus, Rugops, the Atlas Bear, the Bluebuck, and the Quagga.

It's not Prehistoric. This is just African Megafauna throughout time.

I don't recall a cape zebra being that bigger than any other species of zebra.

This is an amazing drawing. My only criticism is that it is missing the following dinosaurs: Afrovenator, Aegyptosaurus, Bahariasaurus, Deltadromeus (assuming Deltadromeus and Bahariasaurus are different animals; which is my theory at least), and Rugops
