Here's what she had to say about her prehistoric Avengers.

"It was fun deciding what dinosaurs should be what characters. I ended up with an Ankylosaur as Iron Man (a no-brainer, as this animal is naturally armored), a Parasaurolophus as Captain America, just because I thought with that crest it would look really funny, a Triceratops as Thor, especially since when it grows up it is actually a Torosaurus, hence Thor-osaurus, and a T-rex as the Hulk so I could give it really muscularly odd little arms.

"It's a breath of fresh air to do fan art, and any excuse to draw dinosaurs is a good one!"
