In a kind of American mirror of Africa, it shared those grasslands with ele—
phants (mammoths), herds of equine grazers (several species of horses),
antelopes (pronghorns), and dromedaries (one—humped camels). This
American Serengeti had all the expected preda— tors, too, including lions (on the
Great Plains, both Pantlyera, the steppe lion, and sabertoothed cats) and canid
pack predators (dire wolves and coyotes). Giant terratorns (Pleistocene birds of

Most North Americans are unaware that the biomass of ungulates reported for
parts of the Great Plains historically exceeded levels currently recorded for the
Serengeti grasslands of Tanzania and Kenya. The absence of any ecological

a North American Serengeti — the creation of at least one giant conservation
area of at least ...
