The toxodontids are such curious creatures, don't you agree?
A large, mammalian herbivore with no close ties to any extant one...

Very curious, indeed, and by far the most succesful between the South American ungulates. Although about the ties, you have heard that they are related to perissodactyls?

Although its precisse relationship with perissodactyls is still to determinate... in an unpublished work, there is the idea that the perissodactyls and SA ungulates (and particulary, the xenungulates) could be relatives of the uintatheres!
