Syndyoceras, Miocene Mammal

Syndyoceras is a small extinct genus of Artiodactyla endemic to central North America from the Miocene epoch existing for approximately 4 million years. Although it looked like a modern deer, Syndyoceras was only a remote relative. This megafauna mammal was an even-toed ungulate, but it belonged to an obscure sub-family of this breed, the protoceratids, the only living descendants of which are camels. Syndyoceras males had a pair of large, sharp, cattle-like horns behind the eyes, and a smaller pair, in the shape of a V, on top of the snout. The horns also existed on females, but in much smaller proportions. They had large, tusk-like canine teeth, which it probably used while rooting for vegetation.
