Many sources tell me that while Africa was an island continent, Elephant Shrews and Hyraxes dominated the northern grasslands and woodlands. They say that there were many the size of antelope or even small rhinos! And then they never give descriptions, or even species names, much less skeletal or (gods forbid) life reconstructions. So, I'm left with all sorts of questions about these guys. Did these antelope-sized Elephant Shrews have the snouts that make their smaller brethren so endearing? Where they omnivores, herbivores, carnivores? What were some of their names?! I understand that this is a lot to ask of you guys, but could you at least point me to where I could find an image of a reconstructed skeleton?
Thanks for all of your help on my other questions! This site is a goddesssend for frustrated amateur scientists like me. I'm still checking up on my various threads; the answers are even more fascinating and informative when you guys disagree!
