"TetZoo Time!
Come on, bring your squads
We'll go and explore tetrapods...
With Darren Naish
And Johnny Conway
The fun will never end
TetZoo Time!"

XD

So you know that feeling you get when you have a pretty great idea and you just have to draw it up and create it? Yep, that happened just now.
These two gents are none other than Darren Naish (right) & John Conway (left), the head honchos behind the infamous blog & podcast "Tetrapod Zoology". The sites feature a menagerie of information and musings on all things tetrapods (mammals, reptiles+birds, & amphibians: any vertebrate with four limbs) and brings great interest and curiosity to all who read it.

I figured a proper tribute was in order anyway, and what better way to show it then in the epic Adventure Time style (I do recall that Darren Naish is a fan of the show). Getting their likenesses was pretty easy and drawing them up was really fun.

Behind them is a notorious fellow who needs no mention ;)

All in all, if this was a television series, I'd watch the heck out of it. There'd be like a super awesome plot followed by a follow-up where Darren tells you about tetrapods, kinda like those after-school specials (only not terrible).

BTW, here is the link to Darren's Blog: blogs.scientificamerican.com/t…
And here is the link to the Podcast: tetzoo.com/

The awesome font used to create the title is by :iconask-angelo:, found here: ask-angelo.deviantart.com/art/…

Done in Inkscape.

I wonder who should be the Lich? Maybe a young earth creationist or a Birds Are Not Dinosaurs (BAND) member?

I feel as though the biggest threat to our heros wouldn't be a creationist or even a BAND-it, but perhaps someone who would destroy the planet's biodiversity for money.

Oh, right. That makes more sense, with the destroying all life and stuff. Sweating a little... 


So who do you think the creationist or BAND-it antagonist should be?

Without giving too much away, we already have a BAND-it character & two creationist characters who are regular antagonists :)

Lich should DEFINATELY be Ken Ham or one of the even nuttier science denialists. They're science's public enemy #1.

Our Lich character deals with something much greater and more threatening than creationism ;)

Are you sure you don't want another BANDit character with one being stupider and more evil (Based off feduccia) and the other being smarter and more sympathetic (Based off Larry Martin)

Nice, I haven't watched Adventure Time but it's so ubiquitous I got the reference right away. Also, making David Peters the villain with an inaccurate pterosaur minion is just genius.

I can't confirm but I, uh, might have had a hand in that. By the way, thanks a lot for getting the Adventure Time theme stuck in my head. =P

Songs from Adventure Time are easy to get stuck in your head... "Bacon Pancakes"? It's been like three weeks now...

I love how the penguin minion is a Petersian Pteranodon...

There can never be enough Tet Zoo fanart. It's appropriate here that Peters was once a, uh, less deviative paleoartist.
