Short Course Hooved Animals

This course is all about ungulates, also known as hooved mammals. Hooves (or hoofs) are put
simply, an enlarged toenail. Some ungulates actually don’t have obvious hooves; but all do have
hoof like structures which differentiate them from other types of mammals. Ungulates include a
wide variety of animals, from deer, cattle and sheep, to elephants, rhinos and whales. They do NOT
include dogs, bears, monkeys or seals.
