I also saw this back on April1st (didn't get around to post about it in the meantime), thought for a second it was an April Fool's hoax, but it wasn't (and yes, I've heard of Elasmotherium before rotf ). From a perspective of their relationship inside the mammals, both horses and rhinos are odd-toed ungulates (hooved animals), or Perissodactylia. raspberry So in away the prehistoric Elasmotherium is a unicorn in more than one way. catty

I kind of thought it was an early April fools' joke when I first read about it, too.

If it's not specifically equine, then it's not a true unicorn.

For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. -- Carl Sagan
