Titanoides, illustration. This extinct prehistoric mammal is an example of a pantodont. Despite its appearance, it was a large bear-like herbivore, an example of the evolution of the early large mammalian browsers. Reaching a body length of around 3 metres, it lived from 59 to 56 million years ago, during the Late Palaeocene. It lived in tropical swamplands in what is now North Dakota in North America.
