Inostrancevia by Kana-hebi Inostrancevia by Kana-hebi

WIP. Sketch. Inostrancevia. No, no exposed fangs in Inostrancevia. Have you seen a Mandrill's teeth? They are as big or larger than those of Inostrancevia and, like most terrestrial animals, fully covered.

I doubt that the fangs were hidden. It is unknown whether they developed the soft tissue of the muzzle to such an extent.

Otherwise is great. I love gorgonopsians!

Look at a gorgonopsid skull: the teeth in the upper jaw are covered by the lips of the lower jaw

If you look at most modern terrestrial Tetrapods, they all have lips. Lipless taxa are actually rare and usually especializad. You don't need to develop a mammalian muzzle to have fully covered fangs. Of course this is an interpretation but it is actually more likely than exposed teeth.

Exactly, unless there is a very good evidence to the contrary, the default should always be lips.

This is the reason why I find Carr's claim on Tyrannosaurs being BS.
