Embolotherium andrewsi v1

The best known Asian brontothere genus is Embolotherium, literally "battering ram beast." Ironically, while the flattened "horn" is analogous to the horns of North American brontotheres, like, say, Brontotherium, it was too fragile to be used as a battering ram, as there was a hollow running down its center, and was at too oblique an angle to provide good impact.

This is excellent. Simply a bang-up job. I particularly like the expression on the face and the detail on the horn.

But is it true that there were brontotheres that were the size of modern rhinos? At least that's what you said on one of your other works.
