The Daka Member presents a large sample of equids. This chapter discusses fossil records of Equidae, represented by the hipparionine genus Eurygnathohippus and Equus in the Daka Member. The two taxa are very abundant, together representing approximately 20 percent of the Daka Member large mammal assemblage in terms of number of specimens. Remains include mandibular, dental, and postcranial specimens. In addition, two partial crania of Equus have been recovered (BOU-VP-3/54 and BOU-VP-25/94), but neither are well-enough preserved to allow for a detailed metric analysis.
