Why is this list ending at Australopiths? Why not include the Homo genus? What are the supposed "ethical reasons" behind not including our genus?

I suspect that simple omission is the reason - or that Homo being an extant genus doesn't count.

But extinct species of Panthera, Canis and Ursus are addressed. You can add a section on extinct species of Homo if you want.

Thanks for your input. If you guys ask me, it seems more to avoid offending the ultra religious. But those kind of guys view sites like these as a taboo, so it doesn't really matter. If nobody minds, I will expand on the last folder to add our extinc ancestors and relatives from the Homo genus.

The part about Coryphodon seems dated. It's 2013; do people still support ungulate polyphyly?

The word "life" in the title seems a tad superfluous to me. Aren't all mammals life-forms?

It's part of a series on prehistoric life, as far as I can gather. Maybe we should punctuate it as Prehistoric Life — Mammals.
