Homo sapiens, GSP Style by nemo-ramjet Homo sapiens, GSP Style by nemo-ramjet
The late Holocene running predator "Homo sapiens."

Some specimens of this animal were found with trace fossils of hair near its head. Its restoration with similar integument near its arms here is tentative.

This animal shared its habitat with the vicious, sickle-clawed, pack-hunting "Cat," the long-necked "Horse," and the sail-backed "Cow."

How will they ever know how glorious we looked when our plumage was cresting?

Nowadays, we know, that "humans" hadn't an upright position, like this. Also, "humans" were semi-aquatic.

Did you hear about the medium sized omnivore "pigs"? It's said, that they are possible relatives of the ancient "cows". They lived near together in "barn" buildings... Maybe some kind of hive, built by them. It could be possible, that they are the same species.

Meanwhile, the "Dog," although often considered an active predator due to its large teeth and long legs, must really have been a scavenger due to the lack of sharp claws. Furthermore, its large olfactory lobe clearly indicates it was adapted for tracking down carcasses. Its larger size compared to a cat was obviously for scaring packs of cats away from their kills.

After all, we know cats had to have been pack hunters due to evidence from the larger but closely-related "Lion."

there are some theories stating that the humans were a advanced civilization that had wiped themselves out by nuclear war, but scientists have dismissed them as stories made by paranoid crackpots.

Was just thinking, could you imagine how future paleontologists would interprit an Ant-Eater? "Clearly some manner of nectar feeding herbivore, moving about from flower to flower like a massive butterfly, using its claws for self-defence."

If you ever color this specimen, I suggest using vivid, bright colors in elaborate patterns (of red, green, yellow and orange, for example) . Anatomical studies have shown that members of this genus had well developed eyes, as well as the accompanying areas corresponding to vision in the brain, but a comparatively poorly developed sense of smell, unlike related genera of mammals. Although speculative, it is entirely possible that these animals would actually have been able to distinguish a variety of colors, and if so, they would likely have possessed vivid coloration to facilitate social interactions - for example, for mating purposes and intra-species recognition (which is doubly plausible considering that they probably could not use scent for this purpose, owing to their relatively underdeveloped olfactory sense). Otherwise, I fully endorse this restoration and expect to be seeing full, life sized reconstructions mounted in our finest museums in the near future, so that all may admire these magnificent creatures as they must have looked like while they still roamed this world!

That's called clothing. That's what we do with clothing.

True, but we didn't evolve with clothing, it's just something we've been using in the last few thousand years (compared to the hundreds of thousands and millions of years that our species and genus has been around). We can also fly (with aircraft) and "see" x-rays now, but we didn't evolve with that ability either. Humans use technology to do all kinds of things.

In any case, primate ancestors of Homo Sapiens probably evolved color vision to help with distinguishing fruit (ripe from unripe, for example), but it's easy to see how a future scientist might arrive at the erroneous conclusion that we were a biologically brightly colored species and reconstruct us as such, though in actual fact, we are not - at least not compared to many birds and reptiles, for example!
