The sounds of the indricothere were a combination of bear and rhino sounds. According to the audio-editing crew, the sound produced by the entelodont was the most complicated of all the animals - it was made by mixing together a bunch of different animal sounds, similar to the engine noise of the Tie fighters of the Star Wars movies. The calicothere sounds were actually hippo grunts, the favorite animal sound of the crew from this series, as they claim on the BBC website. See more
