Two of the most fearsome creatures of ice age Europe are having it out. A rogue male cave lion (panthera leo spelaea) has wandered too close to a grazing woolly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis). Much like what happens when the modern rhionoceros and lion cross paths, a confrontation occurs. Kicking up snow and rocks, the rhino charges the lion while the great cat attempts to circle behind the thundering behemoth. It's a prehistoric battle between two of the mightiest Pleistocene animals.
This image is part of my paleoart series. I liked it so much that I made it my new cover image for my Facebook page.
A disclaimer about my paleoart: When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images and paintings. Scientific accuracy comes second behind artistic expression.
