Shansitherium ("Beast of Shanxi") is an extinct genus of superficially moose- or antelope-like giraffe from the late Miocene epoch of Shanxi Province, China. They were closely related to the genus Samotherium. In fact, some experts regard Shansitherium as a synonym of Samotherium. The skull of a Samotherium is portrayed almost intact on an ancient Greek vase as a monster that Heracles is fighting.
