OOC, what kind of predator would take on an _Indricotherium_? (And isn't
_Paraceratherium_ the correct name?)

Perhaps a better question is, "Would an _Indricotherium/Paraceratherium_
*need* to gallop?" :)<<

Well, if it's the right season, and if it's the right hormonal balance (or
would that be the wrong balance?) it may not have a choice in the matter
