Andrewsarchus or "androsarcus"



The Andrewsarchus is related to the sheep and goat, but has wolf's clothing. Mmífero was a giant of the time. It has a meter jaws, and scavenger. They lived in the late Eocene.
He walked on four short legs and a long body, long tail, and feet with hoofed toes. He had a long snout with large, sharp teeth and flat teeth may have been used to crush bones.
Had a length from snout to the back of the pelvis of about 3.4 m and a height from the ground to the shoulder or mid-back of approximately 1.5 m. Probably weighed about 1000 kg
Your diet may have been more carnivorous and omnivorous that is not yet clear whether he was a hunter or scavenger, because the teeth are more characteristic of a scavenger with teeth grinding.
He is considered the largest known terrestrial carnivore to date.
