Megafauna are large animals (for definitions, see Megafauna). This list includes extant and recently extinct (in the Pleistocene) native North American species with a body mass of 40 kg or greater, the minimal mass to be considered megafaunal. Other definitions of megafaunal place use a higher threshold mass, up to 250 kg. Some species listed here do not qualify as megafaunal if a higher threshold is used.
