Menoceras barbour

Menoceras barbouri skull cast from Dixie Co, Florida.

The Miocene Rhino, Menoceras barbouri sp. is an extinct genus of grazing rhino that lived in Florida during the Early Miocene Period about 18 Million Years ago. They were smaller than modern day rhinos and relatively agile and quick running.

This extinct group is noted by their double horns that positioned side by side over their nose. The females were hornless and only the males had the double horns.

Fossils of Menoceras barbouri have been found at the Thomas Farm Site in Florida.
