ABSTRACT The aim of the present contribution is to describe large felipedid footprints from a new ichnological site from the Late Pleistocene of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. The prints are referred as the new ichnospecies Felipeda miramarensis nov. ichnosp. Based on size and morphology, this new ichnotaxon may have been produced by the large machairodontine felid Smilodon populator. Track analysis indicates that the producer of the tracks had fully retractile claws, a plantigrade feet, and… 
A new late Pleistocene ichnological site with mammal footprints from Brazil
Extensive vertebrate tracksite from the Upper Red Formation (middle–late Miocene), west Zanjan, northwestern Iran
Abstract. An extensive vertebrate tracksite from the middle–late Miocene Upper Red Formation in western Zanjan Province, northwestern Iran, provides new records of paleobiogeographical significance.
Les Canidés (Canis, Cuon) de la grotte Chauvet Pont d’Arc : réflexions sur les données paléontologiques et ichnologiques
En raison de l'exceptionnel etat de conservation des parois (peintures ...) et des sols (ossements, empreintes, coprolithes), la grotte Chauvet Pont d'Arc est un site remarquable, qui permet de


Late Pleistocene steppe lion Panthera leo spelaea (Goldfuss 1810) skeleton remains of the Upper Rhine Valley (SW Germany) and contributions to their sexual dimorphism, taphonomy and habitus
The Upper Rhine Valley (SW Germany, Europe) has delivered 20,000 Late Pleistocene megafaunal remains found at gravel pit sites in the past decades and only 0.1% carnivore remains including a nearly
Late Quaternary Palaeoichnological Sites from the Southern Atlantic Coast of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina: Mammal, Bird and Hominid Evidence
Palaeontological and palaeoichnological studies were made along the southeastern coast of Buenos Aires province, Argentina. Continental Late Pleistocene and continental, transitional and marine
Carnivore Trackways from the Miocene Site of Salinas de Añana (Alava, Spain)
A fossil tracksite of Lower Miocene age discovered near Salinas de Anana, Alava (Spain), has rendered an exceptionally well-preserved assemblage of vertebrate ichnites. The site shows a high
Can Footprints of Small and Medium Sized Felids be Distinguished in the Field? Evidences from Brazil's Atlantic Forest
Carnivores, particularly felids, face threats in many regions of the world. They are a crucial component of biodiversity with a functional role in the top of the food chain. Therefore, they have been
Killing Behavior in Smilodon Fatalis (Mammalia, Carnivora, Felidae) based on Functional Anatomy and Body Proportions of the Front- and Hind Limbs
Limband skull proportions of the extinct cat Smilodon fatalis were compared with those of six extant species of large felids and those of Canis lupus, and cats can accurately be distinguished into three different categories upon these ratios (even across taxonomic boundaries).
Modern vertebrate tracks from Lake Manyara, Tanzania and their paleobiological implications
We studied mammal and bird track formation at the northern edge of Lake Manyara, Tanzania, to develop models for interpreting fossil tracks and trackways. Lake Manyara is a closed-basin, alkaline
The functional anatomy of the forelimb of some african viverridae (Carnivora)
The functional morphology of the forelimbs of the following African Viverridae was studied and the osteology of all the species and the myology of three species is described.
