Bathyopsis is an extinct mammal that belonged to the order Dinocerata, which means "terrible horned".

It lived in North America during the Eocene epoch, about 55 to 46 million years ago.

It had three pairs of bony knobs on its skull, which were the precursors of the large horns seen in later uintatheres.

It was about 90 cm high and weighed up to 180 kg.

Where does the Bathyopsis live?

Bathyopsis is an extinct genus of mammal that belonged to the order Dinocerata, which means "terrible horned beasts".
Bathyopsis lived in North America during the Eocene epoch, about 55.8 to 46.2 million years ago.
It was one of the earliest and smallest members of the family Uintatheriidae, which also included the giant Uintatherium.
Bathyopsis had a flat skull with weak horn-like projections on its upper jaw.
It also had very large upper canine teeth that protruded from its mouth.
Bathyopsis probably fed on soft plant parts, such as leaves and fruits.
Bathyopsis was a transitional form between the earlier prodinoceratids and the later uintatheres.
It was eventually replaced by Uintatherium, its more advanced descendant.
Bathyopsis is known from fossils found in the basins of the Wind River and the Denver Formation in Wyoming and Colorado, respectively.
