Extinct Peccary (Platygonus compressus LeConte) From a Central Kentucky Cave
Ronald C. Wilson, John E. Guilday and John A. Branstetter


Recent exploration of Lone Star Peccary Cave, Kentucky revealed a well preserved partial skeleton of a young adult flat-headed peccary (Platygonus compressus). The Lone Star skeleton is compared with other Pleistocene peccaries from Kentucky and is found to be very similar. The probable Wisconsianan age of the skeleton is discussed.
