In this painting, entitled "Awakening of Hunger," two adult Tyrannosaurus rex are alert and ready to hunt. A pterodactyloid pterosaur (Pteranodon ingens) can be seen overhead. The scene takes place on the margin of a floodplain in the future area of western Montana, during the Hell Creek formational time of the late Cretaceous Period.
