This was the first fossil I ever called mine. With a strong earthy smell and distinct grooves, I was convinced this was part of a snout from a meat eating dinosaur at first. Turns out this is actually a piece of two fully rooted teeth from a Chilotherium. Chilotherium was a large rhinoceros from the Miocene with two distinct tusks protruding from the front of its lower jaw. In this picture you can see the grinding surfaces and part of the roots.

This is the hulking skull of an adult bull Chilotherium wimani; an ancient rhinoceros from the Miocene of northwestern China. Chilotherium use their protruding tusks to dig out roots and tubers of swamp and marsh plants that grew in its habitat 🦏 This specimen is one of my heaviest pieces, weighing around 50 kilograms. Though it's not too well handled (tusks broke off during excavation as well as transportation, matrix started falling off of the nasal so a replacement matrix was introduced to stabilize the nose bridge), this is a precious member of my collection and I treasure it dearly. Coin is one inch for size comparison.

Dinocrocuta vs Chilotherium
Artwork by Julio Lacerda / @lacerda.julio

Dinocrocuta was a hyena-like predator, one of the biggest carnivores to stalk the ancient grasslands of China. It could take on prey animals as large as the rhinoceros Chilotherium, as shown by a 9-million-year-old fossil skull with a deep injury on its forehead.

Chilotherium, an extinct genus of rhinoceros, and a small Oreodont, a tiny, extinct mamal. No filter, just low light. #miocene #pliocene #chilotherium #oreodont #fossil #skull #paleontology #curio #skullcollector

The majority of large #Miocene mammal #fossils from the Hezheng locality in Gansu belong to hornless #rhinoceroses like this #Chilotherium, believed to have contributed to 60% of the total mammalian biomass or the ecosystem. A far cry from the few rhinos decimated to the brink of extinction in the wildernesses of South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa
