This creature stood 8.5 feet high at the shoulder and is an old relative of odd-toed mammals like the horse, rhinoceros, and tapirs. When I first came across this big guy, my first impression was that it was a gorilla-giraffe-bear. After a first impression like that, there was no way I wasn't going to paint one!
