Paleozoic alphabet 2

Here is the other bunch of creatures from A to Z, (the others being Mesozoic and Cambrian, Ordovician and Siluruian) the next 26 after the (chronologically) first alphabet. This second batch covers the Devonian, Carboniferous and Permian. A lot of things in and out of the water, with some gigantic insects thrown in.

Arthropleura Batrachiderpeton Cephalaspis Dimetrodon Eusthenopteron Fleurantia
Gorgonops
Hylonomus Ianthasaurus Jiuchengia knoxosaurus Lystrosaurus
Meganeura Niassodon
Ophiacodon Placerias Quasipetalichthys
Rautiania Stethacanthus Tiktaalik Urocordylus Viatkogorgon Whatcheeria Xenacanthus
Yunnanolepi, Zatrachys

As with any project on such a scale (I think it's quite a big project) there are always mistakes.The most glaring one of mine was to a whole creature without realizing I had another one planned. I like to have a variety of different creatures (herbivores, carnivores, air/sea/land adapted) and I had Meganeura planned from the beginning. Maybe it's my affection for the old kid's TV series, but I only realized after I did Moschops that he wasn't needed. I'll put him at the bottom...he doesn't really fit with the rest.
