Megacerops – A Brontothere otherwise known as a “Thunder Beast”

Just time to post up a drawing of Megacerops, a member of a family of prehistoric mammals known as Brontotheres, or “Thunder Beasts”.  This drawing was commissioned by Everything Dinosaur so that a fact sheet on this prehistoric animal could be produced to mark the creation of the Collecta Megacerops model.

Although this animals superficially resembled modern-day rhinos, they are in fact more closely related to horses.  Our thanks to Mike Fredericks who we commissioned to create this drawing for Everything Dinosaur.
