    Hyaenodons were also the most specialized of all creodonts, and were well represented predators in the White River Badlands. Like other predatory mammals, fossil hyaenodons are not commonly collected but do show a variation of different sized species. The peccary lower jaw, attributed to Dicotyles protervus Cope , in Figure 3 was found by Mike Ellwood (a member of the Calvert Marine Museum Fossil Club) in a block of sediment that had fallen from Calvert Cliffs. When he first spotted this million-year-old jaw, waves from an incoming tide were already pounding at it; a rescue.

Scientists describe the Miocene Epoch as the period of time from 5 to 23 million years ago. The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ.

ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma). The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.
