Untitled[edit]

I moved the page Pakicetids to Pakicetid since that's the singular form of the word. The page should really be moved to Pakicetidae or Pakicetinae, but I wasn't sure what the consensus was of those involved with this page. Are we recognizing full family status for this group or are we treating it as a subfamily of Protocetidae? The term pakicetid is just a way of referring a member of the family Pakicetidae and the technical family name would be the more appropriate home for this page. --Aranae 04:31, Jan 21, 2005 (UTC)

I am all for moving it to Pakicetidae!! The treatment as a subfamily has not reached wide consensus (yet) as far as I can see. Fedor (talk) 20:35, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Confusing[edit]

The article says that only skull fragments have been found, then goes on in detail about limb characteristics. Is there something missing? Kortoso (talk) 20:19, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

No, the article says that all parts of the skeleton are known, but that there have been no complete individual skeleton found yet.--Mr Fink (talk) 20:50, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
