This chapter describes the Middle Awash carnivore fauna, which represents one of the most diverse in the latest Miocene of eastern Africa. At least 15 genera in seven families are recognized from the Asa Koma Member of the Adu-Asa Formation and the Kuseralee Member of the Sagantole Formation. The carnivore assemblage from the late Miocene of the Middle Awash has important implications for regional and global biogeography, and it also documents the first local appearances of some taxa that established the modern African carnivore fauna.

Keywords:   Middle Awash, carnivore fauna, Miocene, Adu-Asa Formation, Sagantole Formation, biogeography
