The Forgotten Story of the Beardogs

Because of their strange combination of bear-like and dog-like traits, they’re sometimes confusingly called the beardogs. And even though you’ve never met one of these animals, the beardogs are key to understanding the history of an important branch of the mammal family tree. Thanks to Ceri Thomas (http://alphynix.tumblr.com) and Julio Lacerda (https://twitter.com/JuliotheArtist) for the excellent beardog illustrations!
