Charlie Chalicotherium

Lived 45-3.5 million years ago.

During the Cenozoic Era and Tertiary Period.


Charlie Chalicotherium lived by himself in Kazakhstan, leaving no direct relatives.The closest relatives


Charlie has are horses and rhinos. He did not have any teeth in the front on his upper


jaw and his back teeth showed little wear, because of his food preferences. Charlie was


a herbivore whose diet consisted mostly of soft shoots, like a panda. His teeth were


pebble like which is where the name Chalicotherium comes from. In Greek it means


“pebble beast”.

Charlies front legs were much longer than his hind legs. He could not


put his front feet flat on the ground, due to his long claws.
