The second family
of rhinoceroses is termed the Amynodontidae. The Amynodonts are thought to have
been descended from the more primitive Hyracodonts. This family of rhinoceroses is
found in the late Eocene and Oligocene in Europe and America. Amynodonts are also
found in Asia, where they persisted until the Miocene.
Amynodontidae displayed a larger body size than
that of the Hyracodonts. The body is around the same general size of a Hippopotamus, and they
displayed short massive limbs. The conditions that some of the remains are found in suggest
that there might have been some river living forms of Amynodontidae.
