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!:(

Is this species larger than E. sibiricum?
Thanks.

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

Very cool! I love prehistoric mammals and you nailed this one. Have you done a smilodon fatalis?

Nicely done....good job.
It was mentioned as 4 tonnes for Elasmotherium in Wiki.
Anyway...i want to know which extinct Rhino is equally heavy to the African Elephant.

I'm not quite sure, but I think the Sinotherium,Elasmotherium,Parelasmotherium,Ningxiatherium and other rhino can compare with the African elephant.For example:Chinese scholars calculation of Parelasmotherium weight is 6.7 to 8 tons,Ningxiatherium is 6 tons.

PS:I think Sinotherium and Elasmotherium's weight may be more.

I didnt heard about those names -- Sinotherium,Parelasmotherium,Ningxiatherium..Now i checked...None of those 3 species weight are mentioned.Ive seen before some days...there are some more similar rhino species.Its just confusing.And as for Elasmotherium, its weight was mentioned as 4 tonnes in some site.In another site it was 5 tonnes.I remember on one site it was mentioned as may be it was 7 tonnes.So i think Elasmotherium is the only rhino
species which could be comparable to African elephant.

Different scholars have different opinions, and their personal views may also results difference in the conclusions made. Hence it is reasonable, in fact common, to see discrepencies between different materials.
