The study of bone remains from Terminal Pleistocene-Holocene Moroccan archaeological sites, where man is the main or single accumulator, shows that hunting was oriented mainly on aoudad (Ammotragus lervia), hartebeest (Alcelaphus buselaphus) and two species of gazelles; the mountain gazelle (Gazella cuvieri) and the plain gazelle (Gazella dorcas). However, other taxa were hunted occasionally, such as several representatives of the Bovidae family: the Atlas gazelle (Gazella atlantica), now extinct; dama gazelle (Nanger dama); antique buffalo (Syncerus antiquus), reedbuck (Redunca redunca), elands (Tragelaphus derbianus and/or Tragelaphus oryx) and oryx (Oryx sp.). Besides Bovidae, generally dominant in those sites, we will discuss briefly the cases of Cervus elaphus and Megaceroides algericus, the only representatives of the Cervidae family in the African Quaternary, and the monk seal (Monachus monachus).
