Les carnivores des gisements néolithiques et protohistoriques du nord du Maroc / The neolithic and protohistoric camivorafrom northern Morocco.

Abstract

The north Morocco neolithic and protohistoncal archaeological levels yielded a dozen species of Carnivora. The Canidae are represented by Lycaon sp , Vulpes vulpes, Cams famiharis, Cams aureus and perhaps an other species of Cams For the Fehdae, besides Panthera leo, Panthera pardus and Fehs silvestns we note the presence of medium size felines like Fehs serval and Fehs caracal. The measurements indicate in fact that the bear (Ursus arctos) was small and thickset a high intraspecific variability of dog and a smaller lion than the paleolithic one. The other families are less diversified with the presence of Crocuta crocuta among Hyaenidae and Genetta genetta among Viverndae. Three species (bear, African wild dog and lion) are now extinct in North Africa and the others (hyena, panther, serval, caracal) are in way of disappearance.
