ferae naturae definition, ferae latin
The Ferae are a clade of mammals, consisting of the orders Carnivora over 260 species, around the globe and Pholidota eight species of pangolins in tropical Africa and Asia Pangolins do not exhibit morphological traits typically associated with carnivorans wolves, cats, seals, and so on, and were thought to be the closest relatives of Xenarthra armadillos and sloths, but DNA research conducted in the 2000s found the close relationship to carnivorans Several extinct orders, relatives of the Pholidota, such as Creodonts,[1] are members of Ferae as well An alternate name, Ostentoria, has also been proposed for a grouping of the Carnivora and Pholidota[2]

According to recent studies reflected in the diagram below, the closest relatives of Ferae are Perissodactyla horses, tapirs, and rhinos and Cetartiodactyla which combines Artiodactyla—camels, pigs, ruminants and hippos—with Cetacea—whales and dolphins[3][4] An alternate phylogeny less supported holds that the closest relatives to the Ferae are the Perissodactyla and Chiroptera bats, not Cetartiodactyla[5] Ferae together with Perissodactyla has been called Zooamata Ferae, Perissodactyla, and Chiroptera together has been called Pegasoferae
