(A) Life reconstruction of Hoplitomeryx showing the presence of five cranial appendages (two paired postorbital ones, and an unpaired appendage projecting between the eyes on the caudal part of the nasals) and large, flaring sabre-like upper canines. (B) Example of the highly endemized association of Gargano, with a reconstructed life appearance of the giant hedgehog Deinogalerix (in scale with modern Erinaceus europaeus).
