Caption: Entelodon fossil skeleton. This pig-like mammal was a type of entolodont (killer pig). These animals were apex predators, with the largest standing 2 metres tall at the shoulder. They lived from the Middle Eocene to the Early Miocene (around 37 million to 16 million years ago). This fossil (Entelodon major) was found in 1954 in the Karaganda Region, Kazakhstan. The specimens were identified by Biryukov in 1961. Photographed in 1970, in the natural history museum of the Institute of Zoology of the Academy of Sciences of the Kazakh SSR, Almaty, Kazakhstan.
