Record Type: concept
Hippidion (extinct genus) (Equidae (family), Perissodactyla (order), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Genus of stocky, stilt-legged, Clydesdale-sized horse that lived in South America during the Ice Age Pleistocene epoch, between 2 million and 10,000 years ago. Hippidion possessed a highly distinctive, long, domed nasal bone. In an alternate classification, the stilt-legged build is seen as similar to the onager and kiang wild asses of Asia, thus suggesting they migrated from Asia across the Bering Strait.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 身形矮壯,腿細長,體型相當於克萊茲代爾馬(Clydesdale)的一屬,在兩百萬至一萬年前的更新世冰期時居住於南美洲。南美土著馬具獨特的圓頂狀長鼻骨。另一種分類法中,其細長腿的體型類似於亞洲野驢(onager)與騫驢(kiang wild ass),因此代表牠們經由白令海峽(Bering Strait)自亞洲遷徙至南美洲。
