Paraceratherium transouralicum (Pavlova, 1922)
- Formerly = Indricotherium transouralicum (Pavlova, 1922)
Asia and Eastern Europe (Whose idea was it to divide Eurasia like that anyway?)
Height: 5(+?) m at the shoulder
The largest land mammal of all time… Maybe… (www.app.pan.pl/archive/publish…) Unlike modern rhinos, he prefers leaves to grass, since grass wasn’t all that popular yet.
On a more important note: STOP. KILLING. RHINOS. Rhino horns are no more than incredibly compressed hair (They are composed solely of keratin, the protein that forms hair, nails, claws, and tetrapod scales.) and will not cure any diseases, extend your life expectancy, nor boost your sex life.
