More Information

Hyaenodon Horridus (“hyaena-toothed”) were carnivorous mammals that have been found in all continents except for South America, Australia, and Antarctica. They existed for about 26.1 million years. These large dog-like predators (88-130 lbs) have been shown to prey on larger species such as primitive horses, camels, and even other carnivores (including Dinictus). Despite their names, they are more similar to modern day wolves rather than hyaenas.
