You should compare entelidont (probably didn't spell that correctly ) to its larger, more evolved version (forget the name. But I know they doubled in size when bear dogs crossed over from Asia.)
This image is used on Wikipedia, and I was wondering if you still had the original PSD so I could remove the bottom banner that's covering the feet? the image is pretty small on wiki so it makes it more difficult to see how the feet actually work from a quick glance, take a look for yourself: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Smi…
Just imagine if someone time traveled to the past, brought the largest female American lion on land to the present, and let the cat naturally mate with Hercules the liger. Then the offspring would be more agile, stronger, faster, and of course, nearly as large as Lolong the crocodile.
That'd be cool. Except it may act completely different from typical predatory behaviour. Scientists have avedence that these prehistoric animals didn't really "think" but instead were driven out of pure instinct.
