Entelodonts, also called "hell pigs," were fearsome animals that weighed over 1000 pounds. Their closest living relative today is the hippo.
This mountain-lion sized member of the nimravid family looks very much like living cats. However, the two families are not closely related.
Oreodonts were a very successful group of browsing herbivores that lived in the forests. They had pig-like bodies and deer-like teeth.
