Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Deinotherium

Deinotherium (dīnəˈTHi(ə)rēəm)

This is part of my elephant series of bow tie guys. The deinotherium is an extinct relative to the modern elephant. They were known as the “hoe tusker” and lived during the Middle Miocene era. Adults stood over 15 feet tall and over 15 tons making this the third largest land animal to have ever existed. They roamed Europe, Asia, and Africa.
