Hyracotherium - Prehistoric Animals 42/50

The lightly built, fox-sized animal lived in Europe and North America about 50 million years ago, in Early Eocene times; it is also called Eohippus, 'dawn horse', for it marks the beginnings of horse evolution. It ran on the hoofed tips of the three toes on each elongated foot; on the front foot only was an extra, outer toe which scarcely reached the ground. The jaws bore small chisel-like incisors, small canines, and low-crowned cheek teeth with rounded conical cusps. The head was long and low, the brain small, the back curved and the tail rather short.
