Are they are race of people? are they human? a country? Monarchy as in kings, queens etc?

Even though there are a few left does something make theirs unique?

Are they a race of people? No are they human? You're too clever for me, Peter! They are not. a country? no Monarchy as in kings, queens etc? Noish, but rulers.

Is this monarchy a man-made idea imposed upon them (like Peter's example with racehorses)? or a natural hierarchy?

Birds? Reptiles? Amphibians? Mammals? Marsupials? Plants?

Is how they manifest this monarchy relevant?

RE: "manifest their monarchy" -- is it important how we can see evidence of this monarchy in the community? (e.g., England manifests its monarchy by giving people funny hats and sticks with shiny things in them, and making them sit in a big chair where everyone can stare at them; wolves however, might manifest their monarchy by being bigger than the others, running on front of the others in the group, and a lot of baring of teeth)

That description of the British monarchy amused me very much to write. Also, hi Solo/Soli, it's been a while, but I've been starting to pop up again more often :-)

...but that's all the odd-toed ungulates Wikipedia has?>.<*kaylee-kitteh is confuzzled kitteh, requestz recat* You're confuzzled?? You lost me when you started getting scientific. Really, it's not that technical.

"They" are a pretty well-known animal. You have no doubt seen one, tho maybe not a whole group at once. Their rulers are not called "kings" or "queens," but function as that. They do not rule nations, more like tribes. And like human rulers, they are much scarcer than they used to be.
They are not native to the US.

Hi Solo

To avoid this turning into a guess the mammal puzzle can I ask if ascertaining the particular animal in question will render the solution obvious.

If there will still be some lateral working out to be done once it has been identified then we should invoke the LTPF list of non extinct mammals and close this phase of the puzzle.

What do you think?

It does seem like it is turning into a guessing game, doesn't it, tho I didn't intend that. But even if someone ascertains that "Aha! The animal is a ______," there is still a lateral element, in that "How is it like a monarchy?"
Invoke the list if you wish, but there is a strong hint just above: "tapirs."

I've gotten myself in a mess/morass/maze here. My only excuse is that it has been a very long time since I took Zoology 101. I didn't recognize 'them' on Kaylee's list, though no doubt they were there, I just overlooked them.
'They' are not related to tapirs genetically, although they resemble them in some ways.
'They' have no living relatives, emphasis on 'living.'
Shall we go back to square #1, or shall I just $poyle & abandon the puzzle as a bad idea?
Sorry about all this.

nono! do not abandon puzzle, plz. I iz a excitud, if somewhat confuzzled, kitteh. *nodz* Maybe soli just did not haz cheezburgur.

Anyway. Let me try that again in a somewhat-less-scientifically-minded way...

by "resemble in some ways", are you referring to physical resemblance - long snouts (should I be thinking trunks, like elephants? (Which are related to odd-toed ungulates, but are not odd-toed ungulates themselves. Maybe this is where I confuzzled soli-kitteh. *gives cheezburgur*)

Rhinoceroses, however, ARE odd-toed ungulates and therefore fairly closely related to the tapirs. Are those the elusive mammals we want?

Maybe Soli just did not haz cheezburger.That must be it!

by "resemble in some ways", are you referring to physical resemblance Yes! - long snouts (should I be thinking trunks, like elephants? (Which are related to odd-toed ungulates, but are not odd-toed ungulates themselves. Maybe this is where I confuzzled soli-kiitteh. Quite likely! I got off on the wrong branch of the family tree. *gives cheezburgur*)Thx, I needed that!

in fact they are not rhinos or anteaters, but *are* elephants, which are a matriarchy. And they are like a monarchy in another way. Find that way, and I will put this puzzle to rest in the elephant's graveyard.

This is 7/8 solved, so a clue to finish it off: I said 'they' (elephants) have something in common with British monarchs. The UK currently has a female monarch; elephants always do. So what else do they have in common?

************SPOILER**************
My other puzzle must be giving away the answer to this: Elephants practice primogeniture, the matriarch almost always being succeeded by her oldest surviving daughter.


I e-mailed this story to a friend who has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and she had to google 'primogeniture.' Sheesh - here I am, a college drop-out, and I know 5-syllable words & all!
