How to use "Uintatheriidae" in context?
The uintatheriidae are a family of the Cretaceous. The name refers to a dubious Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) diagnosis by Hugh Elliot, who elevated certain species arguing that they resembled the uintaurs of the Late Pleistocene. The genus is restricted to South America and contains the following three species: uintatherium, hippopotamus and ankylosaurus. Members of the family exhibit primitive characteristics.
