- 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.
