Procoptodon Goliath.


This huge kangaroo lived in Australia until 18,000 years ago and apparently, the man was partly to blame. And although it is unclear the role of men in ending the Procoptodon, seen the Holocene mass extinction that occurred mainly men (apart from climate change), I have been surprised that Aboriginal Australians. But hey, that's just my opinion.

The Procoptodon measuring 1 meter current that kangaroos and reached weigh 250 kg (2 ½ times more than the actual red kangaroo with an average height of 3 meters.
These giant short-faced kangaroos had their eyes facing forward. At the foot had just pointed a long finger-shaped arrow. With these strange feet moved quickly through the woods and meadows, where he ate grass and leaves. He had long arms.
