You may not be aware of it, but there is a thriving community of artists who specialize in drawing extinct animals.
Inexplicably, the community has decided to spice things up by adding lasers into the mix.
Needless to say, #AddLasersToPaleoArt is the best thing happening on the internet right now:
It is giving us epic scenes like this one:
And this harrowing scene:
Or this Mad Max Thunderdome-esque scene:
