Chalicotherium, strange prehistoric mammal


This 15 September 2019 video says about itself:

Chalicotherium – The Hoofed Gorilla-Mimic

This strange extinct mammal is actually related to horses, rhinos and tapirs, but they evolved in a very distinct way, giving rise to some of the most unique animals that ever lived.

If anyone knows who the artist is that did the reconstruction in the thumbnail, please do let us know – I tried (and failed) to find out who this was myself.
