Specimen: Hyracodon lower jaw
Age: Oligocene Period
Location Found: South Dahota, USA
It was a lightly built, pony-like mammal of about 1.5 m (5 ft) long. Hyracodon’s skull was large in comparison to the rest of the body. Hyracodon’s dentition resembled that of later rhinoceroses, but it was a much smaller animal and differed very little in appearance from the primitive horses of which it was a contemporary (32–26 million years ago). It had a short, broad snout and its long, slender limbs had three digits.ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
