Indricotherium pervum - Oligocene

INDRICOTHERIUM  pervum
Indricotherium was the largest land mammal ever,  weighing four times that of a modern elephant and twice that of the largest known mammoth.  It's head was small compared to its enormous body which was supported by three toes on each foot (much like the rhinoceros of today). Using two teeth on its upper jaw and two on its lower jaw,  the Indricotherium was able to graze on trees more than 26ft high.  Remains have been found in Baluchitherium (Pakistan) which the animal is sometimes referred to as.
