Order Perissodactyla

  • Class Mammalia
    • Subclass Placentalia
      • Order Perissodactyla

The Perissodactyla are the older of the two great groups of large, placental mammalian herbivores. The more recent Artiodactyla evolved in the south, and do not exist on the Hajasith. The Perissodactyla are an older group and evolved before the continent bearing the placental mammals split into its northern and southern pieces (respectively the Hajasith, and the eastern Kellsith, now) and a few Perissodactylan species still survive in the South, but most of their diversity is on the Hajasith.
