Ungulates are hoofed animals. Most use the tips of their toes to sustain their entire body weight while moving. Under the Linnaeus classification system, all were originally classified into one order, Ungulata. It was later split into two orders: (1) The Perissodactyla, or odd-toed ungulates includes horses, tapirs and rhinoceri. There are 15 living species. (2) The Artiodactyla, or even-toed ungulates, with 220 species, is the larger of the two orders. It includes pigs, camels, hippopotamuses, chevrotains, deer, giraffes, sheep, goats, cattle, and America’s unique pronghorn antelope, the sole species in its family.
There is controversy regarding classification. Some scientists maintain that ungulates are a cladistic (evolution-based) group. Others argue that they are a phenetic group or folk taxon (similar, but not necessarily related), because not all ungulates appear as closely related as once believed. Whatever the outcome of this dispute, it is fairly certain that regardless of whatever classification system eventually prevails, it will almost surely contain the same species.
This poster is divided into two sections, one for each of the two orders. Within them, all of the families are explored.
Customers have been universally impressed with the quality, beauty and detail of these posters. Pictures do not do them justice! This is a new type of poster that we call content intensive posters. Each provides a comprehensive overview of the subject presented through extraordinary images and fact-filled text.

They have great educational value and are cherished by teachers, students and professionals.
All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subect. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject.
This poster is laminated and therefore does not require framing. But, it will fit easily into standard sized, off the rack poster frames if you wish to frame it.
