The studied specimens are brachydont
and small in size having thick enamel sculpture, so they resemble best with the Lower Siwalik genera Giraffokeryx or Giraffa (Colbert, 1935; Bhatti, 2005; Khan et al.
cricetid rodent having protolophule II [paraloph] not aligned with the anterior arm of the hypocone in upper molars (M), but with the entolophid aligned with the anterior arm of the protoconid in lower molars (m).
This genus is distinguished by brachydont
to subhypsodont teeth with some degree of variation.
The tooth is brachydont
and is in middle stage of wear.
A such study might have employed the usual division of fossil horses into brachydont
and hypsodont taxa.

ungulates) classified into three dietary categories: browsers, mixed feeders, and grazers (as reported by Fortelius and Solounias, 2000).
The second upper molar is brachydont
with rugose enamel.
Hypsodonty Index: Hypsodonty index shows that Giraffokeryx punjabiensis is a brachydont
The tragulid-associated fauna shows abundant vegetation with significant food supply for the diversified mostly brachydont
large mammalian fauna.
The dentition of these early cervids is generally comparable with those of Moschidae with a most advanced brachydont
cervoid dentition (Gentry et al.
The tooth is bunodont and brachydont
with a thick enamel.
They have brachydont
