Abstract Juvenile material with the main focus on the upper jaw of the fossil predator Hyaenodon was evaluated to study the tooth eruption sequence and to examine the ontogeny of its dentition in detail. The comparison in size of milk to permanent teeth indicates a growth rate of 12–16 % in Hyaenodon. The thin section of a deciduous canine of a North American taxon shows four dental rings. Based on the knowledge of recent carnivores, this implies an age of 3–4 years in the last stage of tooth… 

First Radiological Study of a Complete Dental Ontogeny Sequence of an Extinct Equid: Implications for Equidae Life History and Taphonomy

It is determined that the order of permanent cheek teeth mineralization and eruption of hipparionine horses is m1, m2, (p2, p3), p4, m3, and there are differences in the eruption timing of the p4 and m3 between horses belonging to the Anchitheriinae and Hipparionini compared to equids of the Equus genus.

Deciduous dentition and dental eruption of Hyainailouroidea (Hyaenodonta, “Creodonta,” Placentalia, Mammalia)

The deciduous dental morphology for six hyainailouroids, a clade of hyaenodonts distantly related to Hyaenodon that dominated early Cenozoic meat-eating niches of Afro-Arabia for nearly 20 Ma, is described and the dental eruption sequence of Hyainailsouroidea is reconstructed.

Tooth Eruption Sequences in Cervids and the Effect of Morphology, Life History, and Phylogeny

In ruminants, the different patterns of emergence of permanent teeth seem to be best explained by phylogeny, but the degree of hypsodonty, age of first molar eruption, and life history parameters do not explain the observed sequential differences in eruption patterns.

Deciduous dentition and dental eruption sequence of Bothriogenys fraasi ( Anthracotheriidae , Artiodactyla ) from the Fayum Depression , Egypt

This study provides the first description of the complete deciduous dentition and dental eruption sequence for the early Oligocene anthracothere Bothriogenys fraasi and suggests a useful test of competing hypotheses of a relationship between Anthracotheriidae and either Hippopotamidae or Suiformes can potentially be developed based on eruption patterns.

NICHE PARTITIONING OF THE EUROPEAN CARNIVOROUS MAMMALS DURING THE PALEOGENE

Based on body mass and the general Hyaenodon body plan, it is confidently identified H. leptorhynchus as a cursorial hypercarnivorous predator, hunting prey such as small artiodactyls.

Taxonomic affinities of the enigmatic Prionogale breviceps, early Miocene, Kenya

Understanding of the deciduous dentition of Prionogale allows future analyses to compare homologous morphology, and to explore the environmental factors that shaped carnivorous mammal evolution through the Miocene.

Dental topographic and three‐dimensional geometric morphometric analysis of carnassialization in different clades of carnivorous mammals (Dasyuromorphia, Carnivora, Hyaenodonta)

An ancestral state reconstruction shows that this longitudinal elongation of the carnassial blade may be a plesiomorphic ancestral state for the Carnivora, which is different from the Dasyuromorphia and the Hyaenodonta.

The first hyaenodont from the late Oligocene Nsungwe Formation of Tanzania: Paleoecological insights into the Paleogene-Neogene carnivore transition

The description of Pakakali is important for exploring hyaenodont ontogeny and potential influences of Afro-Arabian tectonic events upon mammalian evolution, providing a deep time perspective on the stability of terrestrial carnivore niches through time.

Palaeobiology of Hyaenodon exiguus (Hyaenodonta, Mammalia) based on morphometric analysis of the bony labyrinth

This study provides the first anatomical description of the bony labyrinth of the extinct European species Hyaenodon exiguus in comparison to selected extant carnivoran taxa discussed from a functional–morphological perspective.

Implications of the dental eruption sequence in Barbourofelis (Carnivora, Nimravidae) for the function of upper canines and the duration of parental care in sabretoothed carnivores

The eruption sequence of, and patterns of wear to, the dentition of Barbourofelis demonstrate that juveniles were processing meat before the eruption of the deciduous sabres and thus the upper canines were not necessary for feeding, supporting the view that the sabres were preferentially killing devices.

Dental eruption in afrotherian mammals

Morphological characteristics shared by such physically disparate animals such as elephants and golden moles are not easy to recognize, but are now known to include late eruption of permanent teeth, in addition to vertebral anomalies, testicondy and other features.

Deciduous Dentitions of Eocene Cebochoerid Artiodactyls and Cetartiodactyl Relationships

The presence of accessory denticles on some artiodactyl dentitions weakens the morphological support for a monophyletic Artiodactela, suggesting either that whales and cebochoerids may be more closely related than had been thought, or that ceb Cochoerid share a developmental pathway with cetaceans.

New areas of research centered on incremental tooth development, chemical composition, and internal structure have the potential to increase the understanding of developmental biology, including not only changes in the pace of growth and reproduction, but also assessments of diets, migration patterns, environments, and taxonomy.
