Barylambda is an extinct genus of pantodont mammal from the middle to late Paleocene, well known from several finds in North America. Three species of Barylambda are currently recognised. The creature likely lived a life similar of that of a modern tapir, browsing on foliage and soft vegetation. Barylambda seems to have been quite successful for an early pantodont, though eventually it seems to have been replaced in its ecosystem by other pantodonts, such as Coryphodon.
