Merge to genus[edit]

The species articles should be merged here per wikiproject paleontology general practice to have articles to extinct genus level only and treat species in the genus page as there is often very little different information wise between genus and species.--Kevmin (talk) 16:32, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I concur
Like several other articles, i.e. Moropus and others, there is little distinction between species with usually a slight difference in the skull (canids), dentition, or vertebrae (Basilosaurus). Review editor, Noles1984 (talk) 01:17, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Oral history[edit]

Giant beavers are mentioned in some Native American oral literature, explicitly as an extinct animal. It seems possible that these stories refer to the Castoroides, so it would be good to discuss them here, if a decent source of information can be found (I don't know of one). 2601:441:4480:53B0:5889:DA4B:3BA7:42E4 (talk) 02:16, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
