Abstract

The study on some toothmarks on the medial surface of the right ulna of a middle sized carnivore mammal are present in this paper. It is shown here as a possible taphonomical evidence of carrion-eating diet of the Late Miocene Crusafontina endemica GIBERT, 1974 shrew (Mammalia, Soricidae) from Sümeg locality (Western Hungary). Also other palaeoecological relations (nutrition and ecotype preference) of the giant shrews (the members of Anourosoricini and Beremendiini tribes of family Soricidae) from the Late Miocene to Middle Pleistocene age of the Carpathian Basin are overviewed in the present article.
