It was massively build as well as looking like Rhinoceros. Weighing up to 5 tonnes,it was one of the large terrestrial mammal.Perhaps it is the largest Brontothere. 



(I asked romanyevseyev.deviantart.com about this animal's height. He says 2.6-2.7 m at the shoulder. While 2.7 m is not that bad,close to 9 feet.So i put this at 9 feet.)

So Embolotherium's Nasal Horn was possibly a nose bone that held it's nostrils up?
hmmm. I never thought of it that way.

I'm not so sure about its nostrils being up there.
