Hey, does anyone have any information about the Giant Tapir-Horses of the Yucatan? Any morphological or carbon-dating information would be appreciated.

Yes and no. They were Indricotheriinae and were native to central Asia, not the Yucatan.

They must have used boats of curious workmanship to set sail from Central Asia. Let's assume these "boats" were amphibious land schooners that also utilized ice-runner blades. That would explain a lot.

With a name like Indricotheriinae, they were obviously not monosyllabic.

What makes you think any of their remains were found in the Yucatan at all?

All those adobe bricks had to come from somewhere. Besides, they were in all the stories pulling chariots and such. As for the remains, they obviously went to the graveyard along with the flowers, young girls, soldiers and cannon balls.

So ends the tale of the Indricotheriinae shay,
Ashes to ashes, that's all I'll say.
