Dana Ellyn’s paintings lend a darkly humorous twist to the subject of our consumption and use of animals.

Giant beaver, or castoroides, is an extinct genus of enormous beavers that lived in North America during the Pleistocene. C. leiseyorum and its northern sister species Castoroides ohioensis, were the largest beavers to ever exist. Giant beavers were much larger than modern beavers. Their average length was approximately 1.9 m (6.2 ft), and they could grow as large as 2.2 m (7.2 ft). The weight of the giant beaver could vary from 90 kg (198 lb) – 125 kg (276 lb). This makes it the largest…

Short Faced Bear - The short-faced bear (Arctodus spp.) is an extinct bear that inhabited North America during the Pleistocene epoch from about 1.8 Mya until 11,000 years ago. It was the most common early North American bear and was most abundant in California. There are two recognized species: Arctodus pristinus and Arctodus simus, with the latter considered one of the largest known terrestrial mammalian carnivores.

This is the size of giant short faced bear, Arctodus simus, compared to a human. I have to say I am glad we don't have these things running loose.
