Early Miocene Horse Fossils
The horse fossils from this time period are very different from the Pleistocene horse we are accustomed to. These tiny horses had 3 toes, were browsers (not grazers) and seemed to be the favorite meal of the Amphicyons and Boraphagines. Quite a few bitten horse bones can attest to that. Parahippus averaged about 160 pounds and Archaeohippus about 95.
