Argentine Short-Faced Bear Logo

The Arctotherium latidens, also known as the Argentine short-faced bear, was a large bear that lived in South America during the Ensenadan age (1.2 million to 800,000 years ago). It was an omnivorous creature, with males weighing up to 1,000 pounds. Arctotherium latidens is believed to have died out because of drastic changes in climate, and it was probably replaced by Pararctotherium pamparum. Because very few fossilized remains of this bear have been found, some scientists believe that it was not very populous.
