Skull, Mesohippus bairdi Wyoming, United States UCM 17756 Eocene/Oligocene (36.5-32.8 million years ago)
Long before they became the hoofed grassland giants they are today, the ancestors of domestic horses included small, three-toed browsers that fed on leaves of woody plants. This fossil Mesohippus was one such animal, about the size of a greyhound dog.
