Brontothere by Leogon
Brontothere
Brontotherium like with many other ancient animals such as Paraceratherium has undergone a lot of controversial reclassification with many palaeontologists considering it a species of Megacerops.‭ ‬Although this is not universally accepted,‭ ‬the two genera are very close to one another in form,‭ ‬and both have a Y-shaped nasal horn that most probably served as a display feature.(More at www.prehistoric-wildlife.com/s… and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megacero…)

Xenosmilus hodsonae by Leogon
Xenosmilus hodsonae
Xenosmilus hodsonae (from Greek, xenos, "strange" +smilē, "chisel" ) is an extinct member of the Machairodontinae, or saber-toothed cat. Two fairly intact specimens were found by amateur fossil hunters in 1983 (1981 by some sources) in the Haile limestone mines in Alachua County, Florida. In 1994 the fossils were examined, and it was decided that the cats were of an entirely new genus. The fossils were of Irvingtonian age (1.8 to 0.3 Ma).Physically, the cat measured between 1.7–1.8 m (5.6–5.9 ft) long with a highly muscular body and probably weighed around 230–400 kg (510–880 lb). Only Smilodon populator was noticeably larger amongst the saber-toothed cats.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenosmil…)
I hope you like the roconstruction of this mysterious saber-tooth...:-)

Stag-moose by Leogon
Stag-moose
The stag-moose (Cervalces scotti) was actually a deer that resembled a moose. It resided in North America during the Pleistocene era. Its range included New Jersey and Iowa, reach north from Arkansas to Southern Canada. It inhabited wetlands in these areas. This animal had long legs, a head resembling an elk, and huge, complex antlers.
The stag-moose became extinct during the mass extinction of large mammals that occurred in the last Ice Age on North America, nearly 11,500 years ago.(www.redorbit.com/education/reference_library/animal_kingdom/mammalia/1112533577/stag-moose-cervalces-scotti/)
The reconstruction here based on the picture of skeleton from Royal Ontario Museum,created by PS CS6 and Artrage4.I hope you like it.:-)

Hyaenodon horridus by Leogon
Hyaenodon horridus
A Hyeanodon, checking the skull of a dead enemy,a Dinictis...Perhaps it reminds him of a long forgotten combat...

Hyaenodon ("hyena-toothed") is the type genus of Hyaenodontidae, a group of extinct carnivorous creodonts endemic to Eurasia, North America and Africa, with species existing temporally from the Eocene until the middle Miocene, existing for approximately 26.1 million years.The average weight of adult or sub-adult Hyaenodon horridus, the largest North American species, is estimated to be about 40 kg  and may not have exceeded 60 kg.
I hope you like this reconstruction of a less discussed top predator!:-)

Cave bear(Ursus spelaeus) by Leogon
Cave bear(Ursus spelaeus)
The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) was a species of bear that lived in Eurasia(it's fossils have been found in many caves including from Alborz mountains,Iran) during the Pleistocene and became extinct at the beginning of the Last Glacial Maximum, about 27,500 years ago.
Both the name "cave" and the scientific name spelaeus derive from the fact that fossils of this species were mostly found in caves, indicating this species may have spent more time in caves than the brown bear, which uses caves only for hibernation. Consequently, in the course of time, whole layers of bones, almost entire skeletons, were found in many caves.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_bea…)

The animal is created by Artrage4 and PS CS6. 
I hope you like it:-)
