Perissodactyla is a family of odd-toed ungulates from Paleocene to today. It is a family of hoofed, herbivorous mammals. The Perissodactyls began as small browsing herbivores with Hyrax-like teeth, and they eventually evolved into some of the largest grazing mammals today. This family includes Palaeotheres, horses, rhinos, tapirs, Brontotheres, and Chalicotheres.
