Adilophontes

Fast Facts 

Type: ‬Amphicyonid
Diet: Carnivore.
Size: Weight estimated between‭ ‬68-69‭ ‬kilograms.
Protection status: Extinct
At almost seventy kilos,‭ ‬Adilophontes was a large daphoenine bear dog,‭ ‬a group of bear dogs so far only known from North America.‭ ‬This large size meant that it was even larger than the largest species of Hyaenodonin North America,‭ ‬H.‭ ‬horridus,‭ ‬and along with other large forms such as Amphicyon and on-going climate change driving a shift in different prey species,‭ ‬Adilophontes likely contributed to the demise of the creodonts as top mammalian predators.
