Metaxytherium Scale

Metaxytherium floridanum

Metaxytherium was a fairly cosmopolitan variety of dugong through the Miocene and Pliocene. It has been found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica. Metaxytherium probably lived much like the modern dugong, lazily grazing in benthic seagrass meadows.
