Andrewsarchus was an extinct carnivorous mammal. It is the largest known carnivorous mammal on land. It was closely related to modern whales, hippos and dolphins and the extinct entelodonts. The type skull of Andrewsarchus is 83.4 cm (32.8 in) in basal length. The type skull is the only known thing from Andrewsarchus, so the full size of the mammal is based on the skull length.

Andrewsarchus can be created in the Cenozoic park in Jurassic World: The Game.


  • In both Jurassic Park Builder and Jurassic World: The Game, Andrewsarchus is based on outdated reconstructions which portray it as resembling a mesonychid. It is now known to actually be a hoofed mammal more closely related to entelodonts. In the latter game, the DNA of the mesonychid Mesonyx is said to have been used to recreate Andrewsarchus.
