There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Entelodonts look impressive, almost like the mammalian version of Tyrannosaurus rex with similar big head that walk on all-fours. Pay attention to the forward facing eyes, they must be formidable predators at times.

I think they were scavengers like hyaenas because many of their found skulls have big numbers of broken teeth, it happened when they were biting bones

Perhaps, I think they're opportunistic. Biting bones are one of the possibilities, there are other possibilities on why their teeth are broken though.
