Uintatherium



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Mammalia
  Order Dinocerata
  Family Uintatheriidae
  Genus Uintatherium
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.

Product Description:
Excerpt from A Memoir Upon Loxolophodon and Uintatherium, Two Genera of the Sub-Order Dinocerata

Clarence King in his recent work' has given an original and interesting account of the early geological history of this region. And this memoir upon the Dinocerata cannot be more appropriately introduced than by a resume of his narrative, accompanied by several observations of our own.

At the close of the Cretaceous period, the country lying between the pres ent Rocky Mountain system and the Wahsatch range lay Open to the sea on all sides. By the elevation of the land which now forms the summit of these ranges, a great area became enclosed on the East and West, and the convergence of the ranges somewhat in crescent shape formed a northern shore. To the South the waters extended into Colorado and New Mexico. The discoveries of Hayden and Marsh have confirmed and increased this southerly extension. Its exact limits are not yet ascertained, nor do they, although interesting, im mediately belong to the present subject.
