Agriotherium is an extinct genus of bears whose fossils are found Miocene through Pleistocene-aged strata of North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia, living from ~13.6-2.5 Ma, existing for approximately 11.1 million years. Materials of the late surviving A. africanum from Africa has suggested that A. africanum died out soon during the early Gelasian.
