Hand-painted cast of an adult early equid found at the Messel Pit fossil site in Hesse, Germany. The animal is approximately the size of a fox and has clearly apparent four-toed front feet and three-toed back feet. It has historically been seen as a forerunner of the modern horse and is often put at the start of the evolutionary chain which leads to the present-day equines. The item itself may differ in color from that shown in the photograph.
