Archaeotherium, partial jaw

There are at least five genera of Entelodonts: Archaeotherium, Megachoerus, Dinohyus, Entelodon and Eoentelodon. Entelodonts represent an extinct family of even toes mammals, and their remains are known from North America, Europe and Asia. They varied in size from a large dog to a large buffalo, and probably averaged cow sized. In North America, the family ranged from the Late Eocene to the Early Miocene, or about 39 to 16 million years ago. Entelodonts occur in twelve states, the greatest numbers found in South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado.
