Q:I saw a post floating around here on Tumblr claiming that sheep are the closest living relatives of Andrewsarchus. Curious about that, I googled it in an attempt to confirm or dismiss that, but the Wiki page didn't answer that question and Google hates the hell out of me for some reason, so I was wondering if any of you could perhaps cure this cat's curiosity? Thank you in advance!
I can’t do a lot of in depth research ATM as I am on my phone, but that’s true according to Walking with Prehistoric Beasts. You can usually find the answer to this question by going back through the classifications on Wikipedia and looking at what extant families it’s related to
I can do that for ya!
If you take a close look at the diagram above, Andrewsarchus and sheep do have a common ancestor, but Andrewsarchus is actually nested in the same branch as whales!
Andrewsarchus and entelodonts are probably both best described as fully-terrestrial, carnivorous hippopotamuses. They are, however, more closely related to sheep than to any terrestrial carnivores of today.
There’s certainly a family resemblance
And here’s a notebook my friend and I made together out of a pair of trousers of hers!!
The old “belt-carrying thingy” of the jeans fits like a glove too! And it also act as a pen holder!
Also, reminder that I have an Etsy where I put notebooks like these up for sale!! And I make commissions too!

Well, I made another, for the same friend!! :> She’s the best, and I wanted to give her something cool for her birthday. What else than another plushie for her?
It’s an Opabinia plush this time, smaller than the Anomalocaris one and more chubby for extra cuteness.
I also made a tiny parasite/friend for it! :>
This is my “Work in Progress” version of Miss Pauling, as seen in the TF2 short “Expiration Date”. As with when I first showed Olivia Mann, I have a ways to go with rigging and making flexes as well as fine tuning VMT settings and textures (Example being her hair being really shiny). Anyway, hope you enjoy this quick preview. Sorry I couldn’t prepare anything flashier.
