Elasmotherium was a genus of rhinoceroses that lived
from the late Pliocene, perhaps about 1.6 million years ago,
until perhaps early historical times (some people say it
may even has inspired the myth of the unicorn).
During this time, different species evolved and died out,
and the range of Elasmotherium changed, but at various
times it is believed to have inhabited
parts of Eastern Europe.
Elasmotherium was a large animal, about 20 feet (6 meters) long, 6½ feet (2 meters)
high, and weighing around 5 tons. Its most distinctive feature was a single 6 foot (2 meter)
horn on its forehead.
Although it is not that Elasmotherium was a herbivore (plant-eater), details of
how it lived its life are still debate. One hypothesis is that it lived on the
steppe, another is that it preferred riparian (river margin) habitats. There
is some evidence in support of both hypotheses, so it is also possible
that it lived in both habitats.
