The Dasyproctidae are a family of large South American rodents, comprising the agoutis and acouchis.[1] Their fur is a reddish or dark colour above, with a paler underside. They are herbivorous, often feeding on ripe fruit that falls from trees. They live in burrows, and, like squirrels, will bury some of their food for later use.[2]

Classification

Fossil taxa follow McKenna and Bell,[3] with modifications following Kramarz.[4]

The pacas (genus Cuniculus) are placed by some authorities[3][5] in the Dasyproctidae, but molecular studies have demonstrated they do not form a monophyletic group.[6]
