Elasmotherium caucasicum by sinammonite Elasmotherium caucasicum by sinammonite
高加索板齿犀(Elasmotherium caucasicum)
Elasmotherium which stood, on average, 2.7 metres (8.9 ft) high and 6 metres (20 ft) long, with a single two-meter-long horn in the forehead. The animal may have weighed up to 7 tonnes (7.7 short tons). Its legs were longer than those of other rhinos and were designed for galloping, giving it a horse-like gait. It was probably a fast runner, in spite of its size. Its teeth were similar to those of horses, and it probably grazed low herbs

Wow, well done:) bravo.. (just to let you know, I'm not sure if Elasmotherium was that tall, I think it was more like 7 ft tall, 20 ft long, and 4.5 tonnes or slightly more):)

I would like to see a rhino the size of an African elephant though, that would be very interesting, I wish there was a normal rhino that was maybe 8.9 to 9.8 ft tall at the shoulders, and weigh 7.7-9.4 tonnes in mass..

By the way, while I'm here, perhaps you'd like to take a look at this very cruel, horrible moment a large African Elephant killed a poor defenseless female rhino while she stood her ground to defend her calf

Elephant kills Rhino in a brutal fight in African Jungle

He flipped her on her back and used his massive power and body mass to crush her..:(

African Elephants get highly aggressive and dangerous when their bodies are pumped up with testosterone, especially over territorial dispute..  
!poor rhino!:(

In the ordinary individuals, the E.caucasicum is big than the E.siibiricum.
