Prehistoric creatures you'd like to see the new fossil Pokemon based on?

In the first gen we had Trilobites and Ammonites (the poster children of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras respectively) as well as a Pterosaur.

In the third gen we had Crinoids and Anomalocarids, celebrities of the Cambrian Burgess Shale.

In the fourth gen we had a Pachycephalosaur and a Ceratopsian, a pair of dinosaurs from the Cretaceous.

In the fifth gen we had an Archaeopteryx (a dinosaur) and an Archelon (a turtle), from the Jurassic and Cretaceous respectively.

So there's kind of sort of a thematic link in most generations (save for fifth and the first generation's Aerodactyl), so, I dunno.

I'm kind of hoping to see some stuff of the Cenozoic Era. There's a lot of neat animals they could do from then. Like, maybe...

...a Phorusrhacid (terror bird)?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phorusrhacidae
Kind of a big flightless bird with a huge terrifying eagle-like head.

...a Paraceratherium?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraceratherium
The largest land mammal ever, kind of looks like a really big, upwards built rhinoceros with no horns.

...a Gomphotherium?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gomphotherium
A lot like an elephant, but with a bizarre shovel like lower jaw.

...a Glyptodont?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glyptodontidae
Big relatives of armadillos, some have big wicked looking tail clubs.

Anyone? Ideas?
