Megacerops was very similar to modern day rhinos, but was not closely related. It actually belonged to a group of prehistoric animals called Brontotheres (“Thunder Beasts”). These animals were larger than today’s rhinos, and were the largest land mammals alive during the Eocene epoch. They lived around 35 million years ago.
This Megacerops toy is proudly holding his forked nose-horn high for all to see. Maybe he wants to impress some females! Individually painted and sculpted based on the most current scientific research, this figure is incredibly detailed right down to its pebbly hide.
