Hyaenodon. Despite the name, these are not relatives of Hyenas. They are more dangerous by far.
— Allen, about Hyaenodon

Hyaenodon ("Hyaena-Tooth") was a genus of predatory mammals, which lived during the Eocene, Oligocene, and Miocene periods in Mongolia.

FactsEdit

Time/Era/PeriodEdit

Hyaenodon lived during the Oligocene period over 25 million years ago. They were perhaps the apex predators in their environment, often rivaled by the prehistoric hogs Entelodont.

Size/DescriptionEdit

Despite their name, Hyaenodon were at all related to modern-day Hyenas, but they were by far more dangerous. Next to a large animal like an Indricotherium, Hyaenodon may have had a smaller appearance, but these carnivorous mammals were the size of modern rhinos and were easily capable of killing an Indricotherium calf, if they could get passed the mothers. Hyaenadon had a bone–shattering force of over 1,000 pound per square inch
