Webster Dictionary

  1. Pecora

    an extensive division of ruminants, including the antelopes, deer, and cattle

  2. Origin: [NL., fr. L. pecus. See Pecuniary.]


  1. Pecora

    The Pecora are a group of hoofed mammals that comprise most of the ruminants, including cattle, sheep, goats, antelopes, deer, giraffes, and pronghorns. The only extant members of the suborder Ruminantia that are not pecorans are the chevrotains, which lack horns and whose four-chambered stomachs are less developed than those of the pecorans. This accounts for the pecorans sometimes being called "horned ruminants". Pecorans are also known as "higher ruminants", because they arose more recently than other ruminant groups. Although Pecora is well-supported as a clade, the exact relationships among families within it are in dispute.
