We here describe the endocranial cast of the Eocene archaic ungulate Hyopsodus lepidus AMNH (Bridgerian, North America) reconstructed from X-ray computed microtomography data.

This represents the first complete cranial endocast known for Hyopsodontinae. The Hyopsodus endocast is compared to other known “condylarthran” endocasts, i.

Hyopsodus was an extinct, odd-toed ungulate mammal living in western North America during the early to late Eocene epoch, approximately million years ago (GingerichOrliac et al.

Primate - Primate - Eocene: The known fossil families of the Eocene Epoch ( million to million years ago) include the Tarsiidae (tarsiers), the Adapidae (which include probable ancestors of lemurs and lorises), and the Omomyidae (which include possible ancestors of the monkeys and apes).

The family Adapidae and the related Notharctidae contain two North American genera, Notharctus and. Lasting nearly 22 million years, the Eocene is the longest epoch of the Cenozoic. During this time, the first ancestors and close relatives of modern mammal species appeared.

Condylarthra, extinct group of mammals that includes the ancestral forms of later, more-advanced ungulates (hoofed placental mammals). The name Condylarthra was once applied to a formal taxonomic order, but it is now used informally to refer to ungulates of.

The Eocene epoch was when the first prehistoric whales left dry land and opted for a life in the sea, a trend that culminated in the middle Eocene Basilosaurus, which attained lengths of up to 60 feet and weighed in the neighborhood of 50 to 75 tons.

Sharks continued to evolve as well, but few fossils are known from this epoch. New Species of Apheliscus, Haplomylus, and Hyopsodus (Mammalia, Condylarthra) from the Late Paleocene of Southern Montana and Early Eocene of Northwestern Wyoming,Contributions, 29 (6):7 figures.

Upper Paleocene and Lower Eocene Fossil Mammal and Plant Localities of the Fort Union, Willwood, and Tatman Formations, Southern Bighorn Basin, Wyoming By Thomas M. Bown, Kenneth D. Rose1, Elwyn L. Simons2, and Scott L.

Life during the Eocene was pretty similar to that of the Paleocene, a warm tropic world, high sea-levels and island continents, invertebrates and plants similar to those today, while.

Fossil carnivorans are described from earliest Eocene localities in the Clarks Fork and southern Bighorn basins of Wyoming.

The Miocene was a long-lasting epoch in which the earth's climate rebounded from the cooling of the Oligocene and there was a marked increase in both global temperatures and the total number of mammal species. Though warmer than the Oligocene, the polar ice caps remained in place.

Carnivores, creodonts and carnivorous ungulates: Mammals become predators. Predation on mammals, among others by dinosaurs, was without doubt an important factor in the early evolution of this class of animals.

There are, on the other hand, only few Mesozoic mammals that could have been carnivorous, and probably none preyed on larger vertebrates. Dental variability and tarsal morphology of the European Paleocene/Eocene “condylarth” mammal Microhyus.

The Eocene is the second of five epochs in the Tertiary Period — the second of three epochs in the Paleogene — and lasted from about to million years ago.* The oldest known fossils of most of the modern orders of mammals appear in a brief period.

A couple of rare mammal teeth (Order Perissodactyla) were found in the marine base of the Lede Sand of these specimens are housed in the collections of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. These teeth most probably originate from the continental Aalterbrugge Lignitic Horizon (uppermost Ypresian), which is reworked in the basal gravel.

At the Paleocene/Eocene boundary, million years ago, mammal faunas undergo major evolutionary changes. The majority of modern-type placental orders appear simultaneously in Europe, North America and Asia, while archaic groups persisting since the Paleocene start to.

Two assemblages of fossil mammals from the lower part of the Eocene Buck Hill Group, Brewster County, Texas, contain two species of marsupials, five of primates, two of condylarths, one taeniodont, six of bunodont artiodactyls, and one uintathere.
