uintathere n : a variety of dinocerate [syn: dinoceras]

Extensive Definition

The Uintatheriidae is a family of extinct mammals that includes Uintatherium. They belong to the order Dinocerata, one of several extinct orders of primitive mammals that are sometimes united in the Condylarthra.
Because the skulls of the species of Gobiatherium lack the diagnostic ossicones and fang-tusks of other uintatheres, the genus is sometimes placed within its own family, "Gobiatheriidae."
uintathere in Catalan: Uintatèrid
uintathere in Spanish: Uintatheriidae
uintathere in Chinese: 猶因他獸科
