Thoatherium  (†Thoatherium (Ameghino 1887))
 
Order: Litopterna
Family: †Proterotheriidae
Size: 70 cm in length, 45 cm in height, 10 kg of weight
Time period: Early Miocene of Argentina (South America)
A typical representative: Thoatherium minusculum (Ameghino 1887)
 
 
Thoatherium is an extinct genus of litoptern mammals from the Early Miocene of Argentina. Fossils of the genus have been found in the Santa Cruz Formation in Argentina.
With a length of 70 centimetres, the gazelle-like Thoatherium was a small representative of the order Litopterna. Judging from its long legs, it was a fast runner. Thoatherium had remarkably reduced toes; only one horse-like hoof remained. Thoatherium even lacked splint bones, which are remnants of the second and fourth toe found in modern horses. Judging from its generalised, brachydont teeth, Thoatherium fed on soft leaves rather than on tough grasses.
