Dino Dossier: Equus (Horse)

Common NameEquusSpeciesEquus MagnusTimePleistoceneDietHerbivoreTemperamentLoyalDomesticationTameableYesRideableYesCommand Wild: Equus Magnus appears to be an ancestor of the modern horse. Based on its stripes, it may be the African Variant of Equus Giganteus, which appeared in North America during the Ice Age, but that is pure conjecture.
