4. Indricotherium

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Finally, here is a land mammal that could really compete with the largest dinosaurs in terms of size. The indricotherium was the largest terrestrial mammal ever, weighing about 20 tons and being twice as large as any elephant. Although it was distantly related to prehistoric horses, its evolutionary line stopped millions of years ago in the Oligocene Epoch.
