This chapter documents the Artiodactyla recovered from various localities within Porcupine Cave. It provides a listing of all specimens described, including the institution of curation and specimen number, identification, skeletal element, and location. All recovered artiodactyl fossils were isolated remains; articulated or semiarticulated specimens were conspicuously absent. Most of the elements are less than 20 cm in length, and typically less than 10 cm, whether an entire bone or a fragment. Only in one instance was a larger skeletal element recovered: the partial cranium of a Camelops (camel) found in the talus cone in Tobacco Road.

Keywords:   Artiodactyla, Porcupine Cave, artiodactyl fossils, Camelops, camel
