Well and but so Ms. Haversack and I hit the American Museum of Natural History over the weekend. The whooping crane remains North America's stateliest bird. The titanosaur is freaking big. But the most crying out for engamizing is the chalicothere. These things once roamed North America in herds! And people say the country is dangerous *now* . . .

These ungulates, related to tapirs, horses, and rhinos, evolved in the Eocene Period and are extant in many of the forests and steppes of Hyperborea. Unlike most herbivorous ungulates, chalicotheres have long, curving claws on their front front feet. Most of the chalicothere's weight is carried on its powerful hind legs, and they are occasionally seen sitting back on their haunches. They use their claws to reach tender leaves on high branches but mainly for defense. Encounters will be with a family unit or a larger herd.
Dead chalicotheres are prized by necromancers for their excellent adaptability as skeletons.
