A typical representative: Chapalmalania altaefrontis Ameghino, 1908

 

The remains of Chapalmalania were found in South America, in areas Chapalmal. Chapalmalania – a relative of raccoons (Procyonidae), who is so larger than all other known members of this family, that he first took for a bear. Sediments and chapalmalaliyas fauna show that the Pliocene there was a plain or pampas with rich grasslands, some woody vegetation and numerous streams. Rainfall was probably significant, but the climate was at least as warm as present-day climate of this region; it probably hasn’t had an impact of an approaching ice age.
