The short-faced bear, or Arctodus Simus, is an genus of bear that inhabited North America during the last ice age and went extinct about 10,000 years ago. It may have been the largest predatory land mammal of its day. Experts disagree on the exact nature of it's diet, but there is speculation that it would steal other predator's kills by using its intimidating size to run them off.
