Mauricio Anton has painted paleo murals for the Sabadell Museum in Spain, the Museo de Ciencias Naturales de Madrid, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and the American Museum of Natural History. He has coauthored and illustrated numerous books, including Dogs: Their Fossil Relatives and Evolutionary History; The National Geographic Book of Prehistoric Mammals; Evolving Eden; Mammoths, Sabertooths, and Hominids; and The Big Cats and Their Fossil Relatives.
"Mauricio Anton is one of the best paleoartists. What sets him apart is the fact that he is a great carnivore paleontologist in his own right. Probably no one else has thought more about sabertooth than he has. As a result, his illustrations often demonstrate a particular behavior of the extinct mammal that he has personally researched or display a unique point of view." - Xiaoming Wang, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles "The best paleomammal artist working today [and] his knowledge of sabertooths and their evolution is second to none." - Lars Werdelin, Swedish Museum of Natural History
