One of the early/mid Miocene era bear dogs, Agnotherium was first discovered in France, but later discoveries from Morocco revealed that Agnotherium ranged across Western Europe and the Eastern portion of North Africa at the very least. Agnotherium may have been replaced by the nearby Afrocyon which appears after Agnotherium disappeared.
