Borhyaena is an extinct genus of South American metatherian, living between 17.5 and 15.5 million years ago. Borhyaena was a large, bear-like marsupial predator of up to 2.2 metres long and with an estimated average weight of 25 kilograms. A typical borhyaenid, it had flat feet and a heavy build. Borhyaena probably hunted from an ambush as its short legs would not have allowed it to run very fast.
