I is for Isectolophus

Isectolophus is another hoofed mammal. There seem to have been many in the middle Eocene. (The reality is that it’s probably a collection bias – hoofed mammals are bigger and easier for paleontologists to spot than little rodents and primates and things, but that’s a different story.)

Isectolophus is most closely related to modern tapirs.
