What has been the largest mammal?

As far as it is known, the largest mammal that has ever walked on our planet is an ancestor of the rhinoceros that goes by the scientific name of Indricotherium or Baluchitherium . It is estimated that the weight of this creature, which lived in Asia during the Oligocene – 38 million years ago – was between 20 and 30 tons , twice that of Mammuthus trogontherii – the largest known mammoth – and more than 4 times the weight of any modern elephant. It was more than 5 meters high and up to 8 meters long . It lacked a nasal horn and had a large, flexible upper lip.

The first fossil remains of this extinct giant were found in 1910 by the British paleontologist C. Forster in the eastern region of the Pakistani province of Baluchistan. In this same area, specifically in the Dera Bugti hills, the French paleontologist Jean Loup Welcome, from the Natural History Museum in Paris, discovered last April an excellent collection of Baluchitherium fossils.
