Herbivora
Herbivora Her*biv"o*ra, n. pl. [NL., fr. L. herba herb + vorare to devour.] (Zo["o]l.) An extensive division of Mammalia. It formerly included the Proboscidea, Hyracoidea, Perissodactyla, and Artiodactyla, but by later writers it is generally restricted to the two latter groups (Ungulata). They feed almost exclusively upon vegetation. [1913 Webster]
