Uintatherium was an extinct genus of mammals that lived in North America
during the middle of the Eocene epoch, between about 45 million and 40
million years ago. It was a herbivore (plant-eater) and believed to have
eaten grasses, browsed leaves from shrubs, and probably also eaten swamp
and marsh plants (it is believed to have lived near water).
Uintatherium was about the size of a rhinoceros, and its most remarkable
feature was its heavy skull with a thick cranium. Its upper canine
teeth were enlarged (especially in males), and would have served as defense weapons,
and males also had six horn-like structures ("ossicones") growing from
the frontal region of the skull - these may have been used for defense,
or perhaps to attract mates.
