This chapter examines the carnivore fossils present in the Daka Member. Carnivores from the Daka Member include leopards, lions, and crocutoid hyaenas. There are 10 specimens of carnivore fossils in the Daka Member, and the assemblage presents one of the best Pleistocene Crocuta crania known. This cranium, along with remains of both Panthera cf. leo and Panthera cf. pardus, indicate the presence of numerous large carnivores in the community represented by the Daka Member.
