Information about Ungulates:

Ungulates – which means “being hoofed” or “hoofed animal” include several groups of mammals, most of which have toes that tapir to rigid hooves that the animal puts all or most of it’s weight on. Ungulates may be either odd-toed or even-toed. Native ungulates are found on all continents except Antarctica and Australia (except where they have been introduced by humans as in the case of goats, sheep, llama and other domesticated animals) and in virtually all terrestrial environments from dense tropical forests, to savanna grasslands, arid deserts to rugged mountains to the tundra.

There some disagreement on what exactly an ungulate is in regards to either being a cladistic or evolution based group or a “folk taxon” which means the animals are similar but not necessarily related. Ungulates also have reduced canine teeth, molars with low and rounded cusps, ankle bones at the end of the leg and a short, stocky head. They are a very ancient group of animals, dating back as far as the late Cretaceous. Nearly all ungulates are herbivores, but there are some omnivores and even a few carnivores as in the case of some of the whales – although some do not consider whales as part of the group – only land mammals with hooves.

American Bison – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the American Bison:

The American Bison - more commonly referred to as the Buffalo (which is actually not closely related to) - is a large North American land mammal. The American Bison once roamed the grasslands of central North America in massive herds, numbering in the tens of thousands. Overhunting and development of their native lands in the 19th century pushed the bison to near extinction with the population dwindling to few a few hundred individuals. Towards the end of the 1800s there was a push for their preservation and aggressive breeding and reintroduction projects were started. Even after over a century there are thought to only be roughly 20,000 bison in the wild today. They are a protected species on federal lands, but in some areas they are raised for their meat.

While the animal is considered endangered by some conservation groups, aggressive programs have been instituted to preserve the species and save it from extinction.

Bactrian Camel – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Bactrian Camel:

The Bactrian Camel is a large, even-toed ungulate native to the cold, barren steppes of Central Asia. While the species has been widely domesticated and there are thought to be over 1,000,000 on the planet, there are only small, isolated populations in remote areas of the Gobi Desert that are wild. The IUCN has the Bactrian Camel on their Red List, and it is considered critically endangered. This camel is liklely the ancestor of all domestic two-humped camels. It is well adapted to the harsh conditions of the Gobi Desert, which is one of the driest, coldest places on earth. These camels can survive through droughts and when food is extremely scarce. Camels are the only land animals that can drink salt or brackish water with no ill effects.

Caribou – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Caribou:

The Caribou or Reindeer is a deer species native to the arctic and sub-arctic regions. They can be found in the tundra and taiga environments. While their population are steady, there are a few sub-species that have gone extinct. Originally, the reindeer was found in Scandinavia, eastern Europe, Russia, Mongolia, and northern China north of the 50th latitude. In North America, it was found in Canada and Alaska, and the lower northern United States from Washington to Maine. Up until the 19th century, this deer was found in North America as far south as Idaho. Unlike some deer species, both sexes grow antlers. Reindeer are ruminants, having a four-chambered stomach. They mainly eat lichens in winter, especially reindeer moss. However, they also eat the leaves of willows and birches, as well as sedges and grasses.
