In North Africa in the eotsena there were hobotny, i.e. ancestors of elephants. The most hobotny animal was meriteriya, growth from a tapir. At a meriteriya, like a tapir, there was a hobotok. It had four increased cutters (two in top and two in lower jaws) which small tusks formed. Almost odes povremenno with the meriteriy there lived larger ancient mastodon. Tusks at it were longer, and the skull is shorter, than at a meriteriya, teeth edge. This is the ancestor of all grebenchatozuby.
In South America in the described time absolutely special herbivorous, called notungulata, or the kopgtny. History of their penetration into South America the quite difficult. The first representatives of these hoofed animals already in a Palaeocene lived in Central Asia. From here they removed to North America and further passed in Southern. After their arrival to South America communication between North and South America was broken. Hoofed animals and predators in South America were almost not therefore began to live safely on a new. For the first of the South American small five-fingered animals with the increased cutters, as at rodents whom they remind on a way of life are known. A big on their forepaws could . as it is observed by the rest> monkeys. Together with small South American hoofed animals five-fingered astrapoteriya, size from a tapir wandered. Their head with and big canines reminded the head of a tapir and pig. There lived in South America also so-called litopterna which replaced the - of hoofed animals which are absent there subsequently.
Neparnopaly hoofed animals were especially numerous in the eotsenovy woods. Ancestors of horses — an eogippusa treat them. These are small, size about a fox. Teeth of eogippus with low crowns specify that these animals ate a juicy, soft. Their tetradactyl lobbies and hind legs were well for circulation on the soft, marshy soil of the wood.
In a Miocene of South America already there lived of modern broad-nosed monkeys. In a Miocene those to Europe on trees clambered pliopitek — ancestors of gibbons, and driopitek — the general ancestors of anthropoids (a, gorillas) and the person. In India at the same time there were ancestors of orangutans. In a Pliocene anthropoids were very close to modern descendants as well as numerous ancestors of sobakoobrazny monkeys already came nearer on a structure to monkeys and baboons.
Parnopaly ruminant (ancestors of our deer, antelopes, a giraffe, goats, sheep and a bull reminded modern antelope beetles or a kabarga. These are hornless animals with strongly developed canines in the top jaw, with four on forward feet and two on back.
