Epicyon vs human size comparison

Epicyon vs average tall human. The largest canid was Epicyon (“more than a dog”), a large, extinct, canid genus of the subfamily Borophaginae (“bone-crushing dogs”), native to North America. Stood at 37 inches tall (0.9 meters) at the shoulder, it was even bigger than the dire wolf (Canis dirus, “fearsome dog”), the largest wolf ever. Epicyon was about 5 feet (1.5 meter) long, and had an estimated weight of 150 lbs (68 kg). Some sources state 200-300 pounds (90-136 kg). It had a massive head and powerful jaws, giving its skull a lion-like shape rather than that of a wolf. Photo: dinopedia.wikia.com
