Fossils of 22 million year old predatory animal discovered in Kenya

A new type of predator was discovered, which was larger than the polar bear and had enormous supernatural teeth.

Paleontologists have discovered 22 million-year-old mammal fossils in a stairwell, where they put them in a museum in Kenya. The samples did not give much attention at the time, until researchers at Ohio State University discovered them and recognized their importance.

The animal was probably at the top of the food chain in Africa when it lived, as was black in modern Africa. However, Simbakubwa was not closely related to large cats or any carnivores of other mammals that were alive Today.

But the creature, which had a large skull like those in the rhinoceros, belonged to an extinct mammal group called “hyunodon.” These resembled cats and dominated Africa after the dinosaurs extinct 66 million years ago.

The fossils were discovered in Kenya decades ago when researchers explored the area for evidence of ancient monkeys. The samples were placed in a drawer in Kenya’s national museums and were not given much attention until they were rediscovered by Dr. Nancy Stevens and Dr. Matthew Burtz.
