I'm just curious, Can the borophagids rotate their paws to grasp prey and swat other predators across the face like bears and cats?

Apparently, all canids evolved as cursorial predators over long distances. In almost all cases, his forelimbs is losing the possibility pronation-supination movements. That is, almost from the earliest stages of development, all dogs have lost the ability to turn the front paws, as do cats and bears.

Darn, I once read that Epicyon's paws could manipulate prey somewhere.

What an incredible action scene! The blur of motion against the crisp faces is a nice touch.

Great scene! Epicyon haydeni is the biggest species of the genus, right?
Reply
:iconromanyevseyev:
RomanYevseyev Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
Yes indeed. E. haydeni is the biggest of the Canidae family. Some of the remains belonged to the dogs at about 1.2 m at the withers - this the size of large lion.
Thanks for the comment=)

You're welcome :) very massive for a canid, I think. But Epicyon coexists with another great predators or was alone in their niche?

RomanYevseyev Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
He had crossed only occasionally with a few latest Amphicyonidae (Ischyrocyon) and Barbourofelidae (Barbourofelis). But, apparently, the Epicyon evolved in its ecological niche of semi-steppe hunters.
