Looking At That Jaw
As stated earlier, there are no videos of this animal, despite how amazing Borophagus appears to be. Perhaps a dog that can break open the bones of the mega mammals of the Late Pliocene. The mammals we are talking about include mastodons and gomphotheres as well as large birds like Titanis. The mandible of Borophagus is a robust mandible and can be seen in the only video that exists that is accurately dedicated to the animal. It is not much, but appreciate this single mandible and the teeth that remain in the mandible.
