      The order Carnivora has a shorter history in Africa than on any other continent except Australasia and South America. The definite record of the order on the African continent extends back to the Lower Miocene, though some earlier records may exist. During this time, the order has diversified enormously, first as a result of migrations from Eurasia and later as a result of in situ : Lars Werdelin.

They thrived in Africa and Eurasia, with a few species ultimately entering North America during the died out in Europe and Africa during the Miocene, possibly due to a combination of Class: Mammalia. The Miocene ruminant fauna of East Africa shows similarities to the Middle Miocene ruminant fauna of Europe, and undoubtedly includes the fossilized remains of deer.

The Miocene deposits of Rusinga and Songhor are probably of similar age, but the fossil faunas which they contain differ, and may represent distinct environments. The Libycosaurus anthracotheriids are similar to those from Sahabi 24 ; the fauna from this site is consistent with an Upper Miocene age Anthracotheriids are unknown from this time in East.

Bukwa is an early Miocene fossil site in eastern Uganda with a small but diverse assemblage of early Miocene mammals.

Unlike many contemporary early Miocene fossil localities in East Africa, early expeditions to Bukwa produced very few primates, with only two isolated catarrhine teeth attributed to Limnopithecus legetet (Walker,Walker,Harrison, ).Cited by: 2. The Miocene Epoch (23 million to million years ago) is probably the most fruitful for paleoprimatology.

During this Important Miocene deposits occur in North and South America, southern Europe, India, Mongolia, East Africa, and Pakistan. Both marine and terrestrial environments are represented in the Miocene stratigraphic record.

The affinities of the Hippopotamidae are at the core of the phylogeny of Cetartiodactyla (even-toed mammals: cetaceans, ruminants, camels, suoids, and hippos). Molecular phylogenies support Cetacea as sister group of the Hippopotamidae, implying a long ghost lineage between the earliest cetaceans (∼53 Ma) and the earliest hippopotamids (∼16 Ma).Cited by: The Middle Miocene Fauna from the Nachola and Aka Aiteputh Formations species of Proconsul at Nachola.

The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma).

The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.

The earliest anthracotheriids appear in the latest middle Eocene in Asia, and they survive into the late Miocene in Africa and Asia. Because members of the family are widespread, the group has often been important for interpretations of biogeography. Anthracotheres have also been pivotal in discussions of mammalian : Patricia A.

Extant African great apes and humans are thought to have diverged from each other in the Late Miocene. However, few hominoid fossils are known from Africa during this period.

In the early Miocene of East Africa there is a diverse radiation of fossil apes with numerous species and genera at numerous sites, primarily in Kenya and adjacent parts of Uganda.

In the middle Miocene, fossil sites in Africa yielding either monkeys or apes are much rarer, but there are indications that the two living groups of Old World. Recent molecular studies suggest that the divergence between humans and chimpanzees occurred at 7–5 Ma and that the divergence of gorillas occurred at 9–8 Ma (1 –4).Consequently, the Late Miocene (11–5 Ma) is the crucial period for understanding the origins of African great apes and humans, but unfortunately the African hominoid fossil record is extremely poor after 13 Ma (5, 6).Cited by: mammals fossils available for purchase here online.
