As ungulates have hooves rather than toes, this animal really should not be considered an unguluate. --18.104.22.168 18:21, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
- Ungulates do have toes - the hooves are their toenails. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:03, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
It seems like there is only one species of the genus known. I think that should be mentioned in the text. Does anybody have good sources for that fact?--Altaileopard 10:36, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Reminds me of a tapir. Is there a possible connection?
- No. Tapirs originally came from North America.--Mr Fink 12:23, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Borhyaena cannot be predators of Macrauchenia
Mixed events in "Evolution"
These last original South American hoofed animals died out at the End of the Lujanian (10,000-20,000 years ago) eventually at the time of the arrival of humans at the end of the Pleistocene, along with numerous other large animals on the American continent (such as American proboscideans, equids, camelids and saber-tooth cats)."
Arrival of proboscideans, equids, camelids and saber-tooth cats in South America (i.e. the Great American Interchange) predates the arrival of humans by 2 million years. Macrauchenia stands out among the Litopterns in the first place because it was practically the only one of them that was not affected the migration of North American mammals at all and its way later extinction in the Lujanian is therefore not related to that at all, contrary to what the current text implies. Alas, edition is currently blockaded. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:51, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
