Tasmanian Devil

A wild encounter
Serafu encounters one of future North America's strangest inhabitants, a Common Hadrogator or Common Duckbill Gator (Hadrogator Americana) and tries to approach it.

This strange reptile is a herbivorous crocodillian that is a decendant of the modern day Missisipi Alligator and is one of the most wide spread animals in North America of 50 million years hence. With a length of 8 to 10 feet and about as tall as a sheep, Common Hadrogators can be found as far north as Canada to as far south as Southern Mexico.

They are usually quite shy creatures but this individual lost it's herd and lets Serafu approach it, because it's also curious about her, since the strange crocodillian never encountered humans before.
A Flat-Earther's nightmare

Explanation of the title:

If the Earth was flat, it wouldn't cast such a shadow on the moon, which is not the case. This photo alone pretty much proves the Earth is round. 

Wake up, Flat-Earthers! Just use basic observation!

Kineko the Monkat

Species bio:

Monkat (Simiafelis Sylvestris)

- 15 inches at the shoulder
- Head to body 20 inches, tail length 23 inches
- Weight: 25 - 30 lbs

- 10 inches at the shoulder
- Head to body 15 inches, tail length 20 inches
- Weight: 20 - 25 lbs

Diet: Squirrels, small birds, small reptiles and primates but also occasionally insects and berries.

Lives: Forests of Northern and Central Africa 50 million years hence

Monkats are the decendants of feral cats that have adapted to hunting prey in tree canopies. Their paws have developed a pseudo thumb similar to those of Giant Panda's that allows them to stalk on branches similarly to what Chameleons do. The Monkat also developed a grasping tail as seen in modern day spider monkeys in order to keep them from falling out of the trees.

Monkats are usually solitairy, even though males and females occasionally stay together to raise their litter.

Kineko's bio:

Name: Kineko
Species: Monkat (Simiafelis Sylvestris)
Gender: Male
- 13 inches at the shoulder
- Head to body 18 inches. Tail length 22 inches
- Weight: 25 lbs

Voice Actor: Ikue Otani (Pikachu from Pokémon)

Personality similar to: Pikachu (Pokémon) and Muttley (Wacky Races)

During an exploration expedition through the forests of Africa, Serafu finds a dangerously emiciated monkat with a severe infection in it's left front paw and barely breathing.

Serafu decides to take in the sick Monkat, nurse it back to health and names the critter Kineko. After months of nursing Kineko back to health, Serafu tries to release him back to the wild, but Kineko grew so attached to Serafu and was so grateful for the care he received that he refuses to go back.

After some disagreements, Kineko became a part of the gang, getting into loads of shenanigans but despite his flaws, Kineko becomes a valuable member of the group, often saving his friends from some really sticky situations.

Hope you guys like this little guy

Ten Things About Me:

I'm born on September 14th 1983 in Den Helder, The Netherlands


My mom is from Greenock, Scotland while my dad is from the very south of the Netherlands (Near Maastricht)

I grew up on series like the original TMNT, Thundercats, He-Man, The Smurfs, Ducktales and 80's anime such as Alfred J. Kwak, Wowser (Dommel in The Netherlands), Ox Tales (Boes in The Netherlands) and other series from the late 80's and early 90's.

My love for dinosaurs and other prehistoric life started with receiving a black and purple toy Triceratops and a light-brown with black striped toy Parasaurolophus. 

My love for anime and manga started with Pokémon first airing in the Netherlands in the late 90's but really took off when Dragonball Z was first airing in the summer of 2000.

The first anime conventions I've ever attended were Anime 2003 in Haarlem (Only a couple of a few hours) and Anime 2004 in Almelo (For 1 day). After those, I've attended whole weekend conventions every year (First restricting to Animecon but later expanding to Abunaicon, Nishicon and MGC Experience)

Up to now I've been to Japan 3 times.

The first time was in 2012 for barely a week staying only in Tokyo in combination with the International Animefair. This was a test to see if I would like Japan as a travel destination.

The second time was in 2014 for just under 10 days which included Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, Tsumago and Tokyo.

The third time was last may for about 2 weeks which included Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Sandankyo, Kurashiki, Kyoto and Tokyo.

Next to dinosaurs and anime, my other passions include traveling and zoo photography

My favourite dinosaurs include Parasaurolophus, Therizinosaurus and Gallimimus. Don't get me wrong, T-Rex is an amazing dinosaur and I do have a great fondness of the Tyrant Lizard King.

The most unusual animals I had the pleasure to see in real life include the Amazon River Dolphin, the finless porpoise, the short-beaked Echidna, The Giant Panda, the Babirussa and the Shoebill

YamchaFan91's Questions:

1. How long have you been into anime/manga?
As I said before, I started to get into anime/manga starting in the early 2000's so that would be around 16 years now.

2. What are your most favourite hobbies?
These include:

- Drawing
- Photography
- Video editting
- Traveling
- Watching anime
- Reading manga and comics
- Gaming

3. Which was the first video game you have played/remember playing?
Super Mario World and Tetris

4. What are your opinions on OC Fighting Tournaments?
As long as they are well executed, I don't have a problem with them.

5. Do you write fancomics/original comics?
I am working on an original comic/manga concept that takes place in the distant future

6. Is anime/manga popular in your hometown?
Not particularly

7. If you play Pokemon, which is your favorite Gen?
I would say it would be gen 3, 5 and 6 so far, but gen 7 might change that.

8. If you're a Dragonball fan, which is your favorite out of the four anime? DB, Z, Super or GT?
I would say my favourites would be DBZ and Super. DBZ because it was the first anime which I followed religiously and because it introduced me to some of the most awesome anime characters ever.

9. What are your opinions on character bashing?
I hate it. Many characters don't deserve the bashing they get without any good reasons.

10. Which video game console was your first? 
The original Gameboy and the Nintendo Gamecube.

My 10 questions to you:

1. What are your favourite anime and manga series?
2. Have you ever been to Japan?
3. What are your favourite games
4. Have you ever been to a zoo?
5. If so, what animals do you enjoy the most to look at when visiting a zoo?
6. Do you play Pokémon?
7. If so, what are your favourite Pokémon?
8. What is the first anime you've watched?
9. What is your favourite dinosaur?
