Savannah’s ambush predators, like saber-toothed tiger and panthers, were joined by cheetahs, giant hyenas and canids, similar to wolves, coyotes and African wild dogs, meanwhile in forests, lynx and bears, which were more dangerous than today’s specimens, were settling. Shortly after new giant deer and hippopotami arrived. The first showcase of this period is dedicated to the most important species from the renewed fauna, the elephant (Mammuthus), the horse-zebra (Equus) and the canids (Canis). The other two showcases show, respectively, the remains of other herbivorous mammals and gregarious and lone predators of that period.
One of the showcases is dedicated to the extraordinary site of Poggio Rosso, an accumulation of remains from a giant hyena’s lunch (Pachycrocuta brevirostris), formed during a very long period of aridity.
