Esto deja bastante evidente porque es ilogica e improbable (por no decir imposible) la existencia de los centauros... ¿dos corazones, 2 pulmones?, ¿por donde respiran los pulmons de caballo? :T

Maybe centaurs evolved like humans and horses did, so millions of year ago you would have seen half a hairy ape/mineature preevolved horse.

This is really cool. I've been searching for people's interpretations of centaur anatomy and this caught my eye.

I do have a question though, when someone asked you where centaurs could've evolved from and you asked if they are even feasible due to their double ribcage - what makes it that double rib cages are not possible? (i wish there was some good books that explains stuff like that; they why and why nots, since google can only do so much :XD:)

Some Dinos had multiple hearts, I don't see why a duplication of genes for a ribcage couldn't happen.

That's what I think too lol. People say it's cause it's just unneeded. I guess double hearts would be more feasible than double rib cages but eh.

My only problem with a big animal like a centaur is having a small head but huge body. Since they'd require a lo of energy intake. but If we make the top part a bit shorter with a bigger head, I'm guessing it could work? Also I'm somewhat confused when people say the back muscles would pinch where both rib cages meet. I can... sorta see it.. but I think I need an animated visual or something to actually understand. Clearly, my anatomy knowledge is poor. xD

It is mainly due to the fact that the fish from which all vertebrates evolved from had only one set of ribs; there would be no reason for them to split into two "sets", it would be detrimental to the very form of the fish, and coincide with a pointless extra set of organs (which was mainly what I was pointing out in my previous comment, how outrageous that would be.)
In addition, in this particular case there are three sets of limbs, and in all vertebrates ever to have evolved, there are only two (or less). There is nothing from which the extra set of limbs could have derived from unless the fish from which we share our ancestry with had an additional set of ventral fins.

This is really fab. I explained to my impressed 6-year -old daughter what a centaur was and she said, "yes, and it's got two ribcages!" ROTFL!
I've faved :+fav: this seriously excellent drawing.

There is precedent for redundant biological systems: I've heard that Klingons have redundant vital organs, which is handy if in your language you have the same word for "hello" as for "come on buddy if you think you're hard enough!" (Not strictly true about the language, actually the closest to "hello" = "What do you want?!")

Thank you very much~ it does seem quite apparent how wrong a centaur is when you get to see the skeleton. :nod:

Oh, I don't know. A bit of extra pipework to join everything up and you've got some nice redundancy there. There's got to be some evolutionary benefit to that, despite the extra cost. Just give it the right environment. ;)

Maye the top set of ribs are to cage the lungs and heart, and the lower ribcage to protect the stomach, intestines, etc? Awesome drawing by the way :)

What sorts of creatures do you think that Centaurs evolves from?

That is a tricky question. Are you implying that centaurs are feasible creatures themselves? I mean, they do have two sets of ribcages...

You just need to find books about horse anatomy and books about human anatomy.
