Barytherium in GURPS

Barytherium grave

Barytherium was an early proboscidian somewhat resembling a pig, hippo, or tapir. It had a short trunk, and its eight(!) tusks were all small and inside its mouth, like the teeth of a hippopotamus, giving it more of a nasty bite than the ability to gore. It lived in the late Eocene to early Oligocene of North Africa.
