Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Mammalia
  Order Perissodactyla
  Family Brontotheriidae
Brontotheres (also sometimes known as "Titanotheres") were a family of herbivorous (plant-eating) mammals that lived during the Eocene and Oligocene epochs of the Paleogene period of the Cenozoic Era, between about 56 million and 34 million years ago. Brontotheres were members of the Perissodactyla order (odd-toed ungulates), the same group which contains horses, rhinoceroses and tapirs.

Outwardly, Brontotheres tended to resemble rhinoceroses, but it is believed that they were probably more closely related to horses. Early Brontotheres tend to be relatively small in size, about 3 feet (1 meter) in height, but later species were much larger, upto 8 feet (2.5 meters) in height. Later species also had horn like appendages made from bone, on the front of their snout, and it is believed that males may have used them in butting competitions for mates.

Other noteable features of Brontotheres include their toes (they had three toes on their hind feet, Ffour toes on their front feet), and their teeth. Brontothere teeth seem seem to be adapted for cutting vegetation and have a distinctive shape.
