Indricotherium vs African Elephant vs Human size comparison

Many sources, including Encyclopædia Britannica claim that the Indricotherium was the largest land mammal ever. According to the Britannica, it stood about 5.5 meters (18 feet) high at the shoulder, was 8 meters (26 feet) long, and weighed an estimated 30 tons, which is more than four times the weight of the modern elephant. If this sizing is true, this means it was even approaching the size of the giant sauropod dinosaurs that preceded it by over a hundred million years. Photo: sameerprehistorica.deviantart.com
