Prothero () said TMDD!, in part because he’s aware of research whereby supposedly contemporaneous megamammal species have – over the years, in work including that of his own – been shown to be radically oversplit*. In other words, what were initially thought to be some or many distinct species and genera eventually .

Ursavini is an extinct tribe of mammals of the family Ursidae (bears) endemic to North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia during Miocene through Pliocene, living from about 23— Mya, existing for roughly million years.

Ursavini was assigned to the Ursinae by Hunt () and Jin et al. () and includes the genera Agriotherium and Ursavus. However in a paper Class: Mammalia. Torynobelodon was a genus of large herbivorous mammal related to the elephant (order Proboscidea).It lived during the late Miocene Epoch in Asia and North America.

Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society Roeder. M.A. INTRODUCTION North American fossil primates are known from the earliest Eocene to the earliest Miocene.

They are very diverse and abundant in the early and early middle Eocene but decrease in diversity and abundance by the late middle Eocene and make up only a very small part of mammalian faunal samples from then until their disappearance in the early .Creodonts were the dominant group of carnivorous mammals from 55 to 35 million years ago (mya) in the ecosystems of Africa, Eurasia and North America.

They competed with the Mesonychids and the Entelodonts and ultimately outlasted them. In Oligocene Africa, they were the dominant predatory group.

At last, they lost ground to the Carnivora. The Class: Mammalia.Richard C. Fox, "The succession of Paleocene mammals in western Canada", Dawn of the Age of Mammals in the northern part of the Rocky Mountain Interior, North America, Thomas M. Bown, Kenneth D. Rose.
